Default Cobb stage 1 brake upgrade

I finally put everything on today. It did take me a looong time to do it but I usually take my time anyway. The kit comes with Race Brake pads, Cobb's own SS lines (good quality!) and ATE super blue fluid.

I have only driven on them for 15 min and have to go to sleep now but they definately stop waaaaay better than the stock brakes. (I still had totally stock pads, fluid and lines) They will probably be much better when properly seated in. I only heard them squeel once so far but nothing too bad.

At first I thought it was a little pricey but if you think about it pads usually cost $200~250, lines $100~120 and fluid about $20. So it really isn't all that expensive.

Would I buy it again, yes!

Wow,

That is pricey. But hey, it's Cobb. My pads, Project Mu, were $70, Goodridge lines $90 and ATE fluid $11.

Nope,

Just fronts. The rears would have been another $60. How's it working for you? I found the Project Mu pads are eating my rotors like college students eat pizza.

So far so good. I haven't really used them that hard yet, so we will see what they will do to my rotors.

That is an absolute rip-off. $375 for pads & lines, fluid you can get anywhere. Wow, Cobb must love the I-club. Plus shipping, oh my god!!
