    Hey everyone... I tried searching and found about a million different options for brakes.

    I have a 2013 PP SHO as my daily driver. I want to replace the pads and rotors. I was wondering if you all could point me to a retailer and part numbers.

    Performance over cost for sure but this is not a track car.

    Cheers!

    I went through rockauto running akebono pads and centric premium blank rotors. Everything is nice and quiet and have a decent bite. The best setup IMO for a good street setup

    I run the powerstop drilled and slotted brake rotor with ceramic pads. Great for daily driving. Smooth and quiet.

    Thanks for the replies! I have been looking at the S4 EBC setup with red stuff pads.

    Not sure if I am 100% sold on the black rotors... I have the pearl white sho with the flower rims.

    The guy before put the red caliper covers on it. I like the look of them.

    The black coating on the rotors comes off during break in where the pad contacts the rotors.

    I have those and they are good for daily driving. However, if you want to get aggressive just know they will not hold up and you will get pretty bad brake fade. Pretty sure I had them on fire coming down form a mid to high triple speed pass after tracking down and passing a cocky WRX owner. I asked the car for a hard stop, and the car thought it was a suggestion. I could smell the and see the brake dust trail/smoke trailing down the street as I willed the old Bull to come to a "faster" stop. Stupid? Yes incredibly. However, now I know the point of no return, and I knew I had enough run off if the car didn't stop like I was asking it too. She stopped but she was a complete hand full.

    Seriously time to upgrade to Carbotech AX6 or AX10 pads. The rotors should already be high carbon steel, so no need to change those.
