I just got a quote from my dealer, $140 for two front rotors and $60 for pads! LOL!
Anyone know were to get pads and rotors for much cheaper?
I only have 9K miles on my car and the pads are down to metal..danm track day! hehe

because the pads wore down to the metal and took out the rotors too.

FWIW: you can use 2005 wrx brake parts (pads,rotors) on the 08's

just an FYI, front rotors and pads and rear pads for an 05 work fine, except, they are a PAIN in the ass to pop in. took me atleast 10 minutes of wiggiling the pad around to fit it in

use grease... or if they are physically different (can't imagine they are really), use a dremel to grind them down a little bit. I had to do this to get Tiburon brakes to fit on an Elantra I had (even though they were "the same") -- manufacturing differences.

they should technically be exactly the same.
