Default Will 08-14 sti brembos fit 2015 wrx?

Does anybody know if the 08-2014 STI brembos will fit the 2015 wrx?

Will i need any adapters, or straight bolt up?

Reason i ask is the new wrx is 5x114 now.

Hardly anybody has even taken delivery on a new WRX. I doubt they have started modding anything, much less the brakes...

Why do you need brembos on a brand new WRX anyway?

..I doubt they'll be a direct bolt on

I'm kinda hoping a Subaru Tech could check the new service manuals, and reference if they have the same bolt location from a measurement stand point.

thats interesting on that pic, but I can't really tell, but those don't really look like the classic 4pots.

I honestly didn't notice the brakes until I was watching a review later on and saw the floating calipers and remembered that the car I saw didn't have them. Had I realized there was something special about it, I would have taken a closer pic. I'm pretty sure they're the 06-07 style red 4-pots though.

Ok...

So interestingly enough, I've found the basic specs of the 2015 STi vs WRX Brake sizes :

2015 STi :
Front : 13" (330mm) vented rotors
Rears : 12.36" (314mm) vented rear rotors

2015 WRX :
Front : 12.4" (314mm) front vented rotors
Rears : 11.3" (287mm) rear solid rotors

I'm going to focus on the 2015 WRX vs 2014 STi/WRX sizes to see if this makes sense.

2014 STi (based on DBA's website for stock replacement rotors):
Front : 12.8" (326mm)
Rear : 12.44" (316mm)

2014 WRX (based on DBA's website for stock replacement rotors):
Front : 11.57" (294mm)
Rear : 11.25 (286mm)


So looking at the sizes, my thinking would be that @ 314mm for the fronts on the 2015 wrx vs the 326mm on the 2014 STi, I'm going to hazard that the bolt holes cannot be far apart at all for the calipers to fit.

I'm going to make an assumption for now (until I can measure and confirm absolutely) that a 2009-2014 STi brembo's should fit straight bolt up for the fronts, but might need a bracket for the rears.

I believe those 15 STi specs are wrong. Our dealer said the STi p/n's were carryover 2014.

So -

Fronts will bolt on.

We hope our bracket will work for the gold rear calipers and will confirm that shortly. If that does work then black GR rears should be bolt on.

I'm sure over time there will be more options and the prices will come down, or at least I hope they do

Did I read this right that older Brembos bolt right up to the 2015 WRX front and rear now? Are there any master cylinder issues?

Do you think the 2015 STI Brembos will also fit directly on the WRX?

Thx

The older Brembos (Gold) from the front will bolt directly onto the front of the 2015 WRX, you will need the rear V2.0 conversion caliper bracket to put the older Brembos (Gold) onto the rear of the 2015 WRX.

2015 STI Brembos bolt directly on to the 2015 WRX WITHOUT the need for a bracket.

Put these on today without any issues. Calipers and Rotors all came off of a 2015 STI.

So let me get this straight, 04-2015 sti front calipers and rotors are a bolt on to the 2015 WRX . in the rear 04-07 calipers will require a bracket and +08 rotors, so are 08-2015 sti rears bolt on using +08 rotors?
