sooooo, you buy all the parts and give it to your local repair man to use? Is it cheaper doing it this way?

Yes you can do that.

Or you can just replace the brake pads your self...it's very very simple to do. Youtube is filled with video instructions on how to do it.

Do repairmen get upset when you bring them all the parts to do the job? lol, I'm sure they lose a lot of money. Would some repairmen decline to do the work? Frown

It just depends. I do know some repair shops do not like to accept parts from the customers. Places like Midas or any of the chain repair shops don't usually accept parts from customers because they want to sell the parts themselves at a very high markup to increase profit.

But there are other mechanics who welcome it...mostly solo mechanics or independent shops.

Why on earth are you replacing your rotors so often?

How much does the top of the line pads go for? How do I know if I need to replace just pads, or also rotor?

A lot won't do it simply because of warranty issues. Smaller mom 'n pop shops won't care, because the margin they make is on the labor, not the parts themselves. You're usually doing them a favor by buying your own parts and bringing them.

That said, having just done the pads on all four on my car, it's simple as long as you have a good (preferably hydraulic) jack and an hour or two to burn.

I need my rotors replaced too (past the point to be machined again). So its safe to say I only need to buy just the rotors and the brake pads? Is it rare to have to replace other parts (like the calipers, drum & shoes, etc..)?

Anyone try autozones brake parts before? are they at least OE/ factory performance & quality? I want to save money however am not looking to downgrade or sacrifice performance. It has to be at least stock performance. Prices seems too good to be true.

I need new brake pads & rotors for the s2000.

Was going to get brembo solid rotors for $80/ea the fronts & $68/ea for brembo rear rotors with hawk hps pads $93 front brake pad set & $65 rear brake pad set. $454 total & I know this setup is solid because I've had it before on other cars.

Or maybe try StopTech pads & centric rotors since some people on the m3 boards seem to like this combination. $53 fronts $42 rears for centric rotors. StopTech pads are $53 front pads $44 rear pads. $287 total with this combo.

Genuine Honda rotors are about $90/ea, pads are about $45/ea. so $450 for genuine Honda pads & rotors on all 4 corners.

Autozones dura last gold c-max pads are $55 fronts, $45 rears, front rotors are $37/ea with 2 year warranty, rears are $39/ea (oddly enough rears are more than fronts. Pads have lifetime warranty. $252 total plus a couple tall bottles of brake fluid to bleed & flush out the brake & clutch system. Brake parts after 30% off would be $176, with brake fluid the whole job is under $200.

Lol it says you can't combine with other offers but for the price of a stamp if I can get another $20 off rebate for buying 2 front rotors, front pads, 2 rear rotors & rear pads that would be $156

Obviously autozones price is good, but anyone use their brake parts before & can comment on the performance & quality of their brake parts? Not looking to try to save $200-250, but end up crashing my car. Even if it's warrantied I'm not looking to put on cheap parts that don't perform to at least factory standards, or wear out or warp really quickly, meaning I'd have to prematurely do the job again due to inferior parts.

Lol just checked the m3, they want $280 each rotor & $55 per pad set. On this car if I'm paying that much for rotors I can get cross drilled, slotted & cryo'd. So make sure you price compare as autozone was cheap for the S2k but not for the m3 (except the pads). But this deal is for a complete brake job.

Something tells me I should just get the brembo/hawk combo I was initially going to get.

I've used Autozone brake parts before (Duralast brand)...but only for replacing parts on my mom's car that she just uses for errands and trips. They worked well, couldn't tell the difference between OEM and Duralast. But my mom doesn't drive her car on the track or for any spirited driving whatsoever. If I was looking for driving performance...pushing the car close to it's limits...I would not use Duralast.

I have been super happy with duralast brake pads (wont use anything else), they are the cheapest that I have found. Just make sure they are ceramic (duralast gold or better). My dads windstar was warping a rotor very frequently when he went to brake masters, he started doing his own brakes and they still warped. I then googled and bought duralast gold ceramic pads and it never warped a rotor after that. If I have to replace rotors I usually go with the cheapest rotors while paying $10 more for ceramics; this seems to be a winning combination in my experience.
