Default 2004 STi Brake Parts Cost

I was at my local Subaru delaer looking to see if the 2005's had come in. They had a 2004 STi on the showroom floor. A salesman told me that dealer cost on 4 brake rotors and front & rear brake pads were $1800 (DEALER COST). I did not say it, but I was thinking B***S***. I looked on TireRack and you can get Brembo slotted Rotors and Hawk HPS or HP Plus pads for all 4 wheels for under $800.

Anyone had to replace brake parts yet?

I only know dealer cost on the fronts:

$450ish... the guy who screwed mine up got them for $515 a piece... sooo... you're looking at $1030 for the fronts (cheapest you could get them new through Subaru).. I dunno about the rears.. perhaps $1800 isn't too far off.

my question is why would you replace the brakes with subaru stuff? Not that it's not good but they charge you double for what you could get aftermarket, Quality aftermarket not ebay special pads and rotors

The price sounds about right, figure the price of the rotors alone, then add the not so cheap pads. I heard $300 for front brake pads, probably not right but hey, who actually knows other then the people selling them.

damn, time to do a brake swap. Put those old single piston brakes in and buy those autozone 30$ pads.

how log do those brake pads last? on a daily but spirited driver? My WRX's pads lasted 2 years.

I know of at least one person that has had their pads replaced for free at 15k. Just an FYI. My sales guy also said that all the wear on brake parts is covered under the 3/36k. I've yet to test that.

With all due respect to Luke and his fine organization, Greenstuff pads have a shockingly bad reputation. Just do a search here on the word "greenstuff" and you'll get an eyeful. Do the same search on Scoobynet and learn even more.
