Exactly. Someday I'll have them but there are a lot of other mods higher on the list. The 4/2 brembos are certainly sufficient until then.

I lucked out. Someone decided to steal my front brembo's. Wrxbrakes cut me a deal that would be almost the same price as replacement brakes from the dealer.

Brembo is a clear Win. Their equipment is tried and true on tracks all over the world. Something about Alcon and AP racing. But stoptechs are on a lot of endurance racing cars. If you google racing teams, stoptech... You find all kinds of articles.

I've like mine, pads are just as expensive as brembos. They are narrower too, so wheel fitment is never an issue.

Hey guys. Messing around with photoshop and came up with an idea for a new overlay style. "2015 WRX concept style"

What do you think?




PS, thank you to member Alyangula for the source image that I stole without your permission. If you would like me to take it down I will, but you had the clearest DGM WRX image from the rear that I could find. So cheers to that!

Hello Photoshop wizard,

Please give me another with silver instead of the blacked out inner bit.

Much <3,
Aly
