Actually, I got my 2-pot rears very cheap - what is one man's trash is another man's treasure, I suppose. The cost was comparable to a set of vented Legacy rotors.

But then, I'm currently a little paranoid about my brakes. I recently had an off-course incident at Watkins Glen that was at least partly due to brake fade (I'm sure the rest of it was brain fade - drove at 10/10ths just a bit too long and didn't leave any reserve), and I am very lucky that I got off with a slightly bent fender and hood (thank goodness for those styrofoam blocks!). Not too shabby for flying off the front straight at 115+mph wondering "hm. i'm not slowing down. uh oh!" ...

Having the turbo has really made me more cognizant of my brakes, as I was easily hitting 130+ on the back straight before the chicane at the Glen, well within 944 and 911 Turbo territory. And I don't have a set of "Big Red" brakes like they do! Maybe what I'm trying to say is that I really need Porsche brakes, or better yet, a Porsche... *sigh*
