you could probably do a search as most have found out that there are only brackets... godspeed makes some but they are like $500 and twe makes some that are expensive but only work with THEIR rotors.

Those Kartboy adapters are for the Subaru rear 2pots, not the STi Brembo rears.

Yup... no word on Brembo adapters from Tom. I have those 2 pot adapters and they are sweet!

God damn people charge a lot for things these days...

I'd put the $200 toward an old mill and start the cutting!

I have the 2004 STI BBS wheels (5 x 100). Plus I got the brembos (just calipers) from a junker. To fit them on my 2006 WRX:

Is it PnP on the front by just buying a rotor?
Other than the rotors what else do I need to get so that they fit the rears? The adapters?

For the rears, you'll need new rotors and a bracket to relocate the caliper to fit the rotor. TWR was the only site that I could find that sold both together, although I've heard that they arn't making the bracket anymore. You might want to email them asking them about it. I've had mine on for about 4 months so far and I havn't had a single problem with them. Like was said earlier in this thread, Godspeed also sells a bracket, but I'm not sure if they sell a rotor to go with it. I don't think the STi rear rotor will fit right up either.
