Default The end all be all for STi Brembos on the cheap

I don't know if this has been brought to anyone's attention before, but as I don't scan the forums frequently I feel obligated to share this.

After years of searching ebay and nasioc for beat to crap used brembos, all outrageously priced, I stumbled across these gems by powerstop.

At first I thought it too good to be true, but I figured for the price, and it being on rock auto, there was little risk involved. I received the shipment 2 days after I ordered it, and I will let the pic speak for itself.




Best part of this..... They were $720.00 for the set!!!!! All four calipers, granted they are refurbished, but what are the alternatives? Buy a 60,000 mile beat to hell set off eBay for $1300 that need to be refurbished anyway?

At least these are actual oem calipers that have been rebuilt by a huge company that specializes in manufacturing brake parts, rather than your local powder coater. The threads on every caliper look perfect, possibly helicoiled. The finish is awesome and I don't even mind the Porsche-esque Powerstop logo. Looks like Powerstop gave a nice big middle finger to all those eBay sellers asking ridiculous prices for these things.

Again, forgive me if I am late to the party here, but this is awesome news and a total no brainer for any subie owner that wants brembos without bending over. THANK YOU POWERSTOP!

I'm in the same boat for getting new calipers and am curious as to what rotors you go with. I am under the understanding that us FA WRX owners will need to get STI rotors. I'll take that over the somewhat limited options of doing the CTS swap and the hassle of getting adapters.

Iíd like to hear some details, please.

-Whatís the vehicle your putting these on?

-What is the part number associated?

-after putting these on, please give us details on; The feel, performance, feedback. Etc.

I myself have looked at some used kits from brembo(sti) that would fit a 5x100 setup, and the price and being used has swayed me away at every search. Please share your thoughts and details on this. Myself, and many others would love to hear about it.

P.S the Porsche look lettering looks pretty cool .

Thankyou

-Nic

I will update the original post with full build, part numbers, prices, etc. Once I receive all the parts that are shipping in.

Will these fit on the stock caliper mounts for a 2002 WRX? I only ask because I need to upgrade my front brakes to match the backs.

Not sure, but the great thing about subaru is you can swap suspension components to make things fit pretty easily.

He can't tell you because he doesn't even own a set. He said so himself in his other thread.

If you want a real answer, go to the PowerStop website. I can tell you the answer is "no ".

Samurai jack is very upset that this thread will no longer allow him to rip people off.

I own the set of calipers that I took a picture of and posted. He just seems very concerned with showing everyone on the forum that he's the big bad brembo authority.

I've asked him to take his personal greivences with me to my DM, but the approval of all you faceless names seems to be more important to him. But granted, I do enjoy feeding the trolls
