Default Brake and Rotor Upgrade for 2011 STI limited

I've searched around, read stickies, and looked at vendors. All they have are brakes and rotors for up to 2010 and nothing for 2011. Would the 2010 Hawks HPS pad work and would the 2010 rotors work on 2011? I have a 2011 Limited STI. Any links would be helpful

The brakes should be the same for all '08+ STI's.

Na never got a chance to. Just started researching ahead of time so I can get the parts before hand. Will give them a call before I make an order.

That's what I thought but don't know why they only list saying 08-10 instead of 08+

and you already have brembo rotors....the only real upgrade would be 2 piece rotors and the OP does not need those...or he would not be asking

I'm looking for slotted/drilled rotors and pads that bite a bit harder. When I had a bolt-on TSX, I used Hawks HPS with stoptech slotted/drilled and it gripped harder. I just want to have an idea of what grips better for braking in terms of pads. For rotors I already know what I want, just have to find it. But in terms of pads, what would be an upgrade from the stock STi pads? I'm looking for pads that are a bit more aggressive since I plan on autox in future and want pads that would work well.

slotted/drilled rotors are no upgrade and they actually can cause issues...like cracking.....ya dont need that...and they have NO affect on the braking


the stoptech street performance pads seem to be the new 'best bang' pads

hawk pads suck...used 'em...hated 'em

and you can just stop thinking like you own a tsx, now

Slotted, and especially drilled, are a totally not needed on a street car. Drilled rotors are just a bad idea. Bad. Don't even think about getting them. Waste of money. You have a 2011 STI. Unless you're tracking the car, you do not need new brakes.

companies just haven't updated their listings yet. not high on their priorities.

i'd just score myself some DBA 5000's for the front & call it a day if you're tracking it. otherwise i'd do nothing.
