Not really, in a previous post I indicated that I had a brace on the car and subsequently sold it. The benefits in pedal firmness are definitely there when you push harder, but on DD light braking duty it's not worth it IMO. If I still tracked the car regularly I would probably have kept it.

I'm not surprised that an 08+ 2.5i brakes better than an 04 WRX, but I can say that my car brakes and feels better with 08+ WRX front brakes installed on it, you don't have to push the pedal as hard in the first place.
