If you've done brakes before on any other car then the 6er brake job will be a piece of cake.

Those StopTech rotors go for $84 front each and $78 rear each at TireRack (eBay is not always cheap)

TireRack also has the Cryo-treated version for a few $ more. I would go for these, freezing the rotors does make a difference.

As for pads, if you want zero dust and don't mind slightly less bite than OEM, then go for Akebono also available at TireRack. Less than 1/2 the cost of OEM pads as a bonus.

For about the same price as the Akebono you can get StopTech Street Performance pads (what I use) at Zeckhausen. For some reason TireRack does not carry the rear StopTech pads, only the fronts. These pads have very similar bite as OEM but will withstand much more heat and dust is less then half of OEM, plus it washes off easily.
