Ya totally don't want brembos. Everyone knows they are poop! Even the guys with STis are gettin rid of em in favor for the smaller WRX brakes. They are soooo much better! 2pot sliders and H6 rears blow brembos out of the water!!!!!

/sarcasm


But more seriously, for the new brembos, I'd expect to pay about 700-1000 for the fronts. It really depends.

I have always waited around and picked up brembos when they are less than 500 a set...


Here are some in my regional section...they are a little cheaper, maybe shoot an offer? http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2490812
I know they arent black, but they are identical to the new sti ones

Do some reasearch OP on what Scotty is saying...there are some articles where people have tested brembos on the wrx and they perform worse than the factory brakes due to the bias. If you want bling go ahead but the car wont stop better.

If u get the brembos get the h6 upgrade to help with the bias problem. Wait you have a new car.... do the new subarus have an h6 upgrade?

Brembos will only help with heat capacity

Or better yet. Get the whole brembo package (rears too) and not just the fronts. Bias problem solved.

To be honest, I've driven a 2010 WRX and I have a 2010 STI. Out of the box, the brembos will perform better, but they may not really feel like it.

For that price man, buy them. Especially with the braided lines. Throw in some super blue during your install and get the support brace and then you will see a dramatic difference. Install should be pretty straight forward if you have a buddy to help with the fluid.

As for Paulpat's response... when it comes to brakes, Everything comes down to heat dissipation.

0-60 is fun, but 60-0 is even more fun with the right brakes (if you're ok with the feeling of vertigo that is haha)

Rear Brembo caliper moves bias forward too actually, if I recall Legacy777's spreadsheet. Front Brembos with FHI/Nissan 2 pots gets the bias nearly back to stock.

but seriously, if the bias is so bad with brembos, then why does subaru use it? guys track their stock STis with no issue. not very many STi owners swap out their brakes for something else, much less guys that only DD their car or do occasional track days. and they certainly arent running to swap back to WRX sized/biased brakes.

just playing devils advocate, personally i run the 4-pot/2-pot setup on my 2010 and love it. I chose this route because i wanted to run 15" wheels for winter use, which cant be done with brembos. but if you could, or i settled on 17" wheels for winter use, i would absolutely use brembos.

Nothing is wrong with brembos. Its just the front brembos with the wrx rears that give the problem of a really front bias car. Some people attribute the car's nose diving for actual braking when in reality you want it to brake flatter not heavier.

Front and rear brembos are golden! Or black, depending on which year you get. Pun intended.
