Anyway, I get so much dust that I have a hard time believing the existing pads are ceramic, but then again we bought the car used, so no telling what the previous owner did. Thanks!
I'm planning on just buying StopTech pads. They're $77.95 for fronts and $55.95 for rears. I'm also planning on getting the StopTech rotors which are $152.95 for fronts and rears for $145. You can order them from modbargains.com
