Default 2012 Impreza ss brake line choices

Just looking for info on possible ss brake line choices for the 2012+ 2.0i impreza.

I have looked through tirerack and other websites, but have come up empty. I know there is a set for the brz from stoptech and goodridge, however i am unsure of fitment. Chime in if anyone has done any brake upgrades for the 2012 impreza =D

Are there any better caliper and rotor choices that would work for the new gen impreza?

Buy 79s brakes, the XV came with larger rotors versus the non XV Imprezas, cursory inspection shows they are identical to early WRX and current Forester.

That being said, I felt a huge improvement switching to stop tech pads and synthetic brake fluid on my 2012 Sport Limited.

Plus I will still have the option to go down to 15" wheels and ultra inexpensive snow tire options in the future. The XV, Forester, WRX upgrades require 16" or larger.

As for SS lines, unless you are doing track duty or autocross, they're a bit of overkill.

I assume buying larger rotors will mean i need to buy the XV/BRZ calipers? The difference is about 19-20mm diameter difference from XV and 2.0i rotors. Is there enough clearance for proper fitment with stock 2.0i calipers?

Calipers, rotors and brackets need to be replaced.

Can get pricey, so start with better pads, and ATE Amber, DOT 4, which requires an entire system flush, do not mix DOT 3 and 4.

If that's not enough, you at least know you have options.

Sounds about right =P...i was thinking of doing this all in one go since i need to replace my brake fluid anyways (pads, rotors, fluids)...but debating if i should also upgrade to ss brake lines. Haven t found any information on possible options though. I assume the 2.5i and 2.0i share the same front brake setup, as rotor/caliper sizes are the same. Anyone know of SS brake lines for 2.5i? (maybe they would fit)

The 2.5i from the previous generation (08-11)? You can use SS lines listed for the WRX.
But as stated before, you're not going to notice any appreciable difference if you are not using your car for track duty.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure there was someone on here with an orange XV that was running 15" rims with big off road tires.

Yes, those are Team Dynamics rally type wheels, there are a few sets of 15s that fit, but they usually cost a ton.

Nope, Team Dynamics are so expensive they don't even give a list price, you have to contact them directly.

Beyond TD, there was the Rota Slipstream and some rare Buddy Club model we saw like 2 sets of in the US. Best to go with 16 and above if you want more than 3 choices.
