I bought a 2013 STI a few weeks ago, and even from the test drive, the one thing I was unhappy with is the braking. I was about to start looking at what brake upgrades people have been doing.
I'm a bit spoiled. The brakes on my 370Z are a bit bigger, and I have considerably more tire patch in the Z, so it ought to brake better.
After reading this, I feel pretty good about what the STI can do. I'll just have to put wider/stickier rubber on it if I want it to brake faster.
And I must be in the 1% who does drive the twisties and take my cars to race tracks.
Still, great thread.
