For what kind of pads are you looking? OEM, HP, Race? Have you checked the vendor forums, dealer parts depts? They are available.

Have a Nice Day?

I am looking for high performance pads for OEM calipers that work with the AEM big brake slotted rotors.

Talk to Dave at www.oakos.com he carries Carbotech pads that fit the 03. By the way the 03 WRX pad is the same as the 02 2.5 RS pad.

If your car was produced in 9/02, you need the 03 style pad. What's the difference between the 02 and 03 pad? The 02 won't fit your car . The rear pad in the 03 is the same as in the 99-04 Impreza RS and WRX and all 00+ Legacys with rear disks- you should have no trouble finding those. Porterfield, EBC, Hawk, Carbotech, and others make pads to fit your car- you're either looking in all the wrong places or not looking very hard .
