You bad! I've wanted nice, aftermarket rotors. I just honestly can't decide between slotted, drilled or both... I was also thinking dimpled, since it doesn't drill all the way through, yet still keeps an aftermarket design. I still believe in the power of full-face. Lookin' nice, Kaitlin!

I was looking at those, too, but I just think they look weird... However, they might flow better with my overall BRZ project. Explain to me your preference, Marshall.

Because pretty.

There's a bunch of information here: http://www.essexparts.com/12-81-x1-2...ight-hand.html

I dunno if they even have Hook slotted rotors in your size. It's mostly in the two piece rotor fitment for BIG brakes.

I was going to go crazy with brakes but decided against it. The rear brake pads were at 2mm (finally at 72000 miles) and well.. I didn't want to spend the cash on bigger brakes. So DBA4000s fit the bill.. Especially since I got free shipping on Amazon... Bought the stop tech brake pads and stainless steel lines with my LAST can of super blue and I'm calling it good for brakes right now. If they aren't working out after the car is tuned then I'll look into better upgrades but for right now they suit my needs just fine. And I can still fit a 16 inch wheel over them for winter.

Finally replaced my suspension today on my 98 Impreza OBS. threw on 04 STI Struts and springs off Element's old rally car. Got hooked up from those guys, courtesy of Trollden. All in all it took about 5 hours working by myself. Rides way better than I anticipated..

I think I could live with that


a lil' more beefy, eh?


rear assembly installed


front assembly installed
