I don't think they are any higher for this car than others. Brembos, Baers, Stoptechs systems are expensive. You probably won't need to upgrade your brakes unless you are going to track your car. At the track they really get heated up and the stock brakes will destroy themselves. But with normal street driving, keeping your lug nuts torqued, the stock rotors will probably last a long time. If you want more stopping power etc. you can play around with aftermarket pads for a lot less money than a 2000 dollar brake system. I have sort of been down that route and am just giving you my own opinion based on my experience.Huntress said:Is it just my lack of knowledge or am I correct in thinking the prices for brake upgrades for this car a little on the high side? I am basing this on the cost of drilled and slotted rotors I've seen to date. It seems even more expensive when you consider rotors are consumables.
I'm thinking this out, as I am going to reach out here and assume these rotors will warp eventually like other GM cars I've owned in the past, or could I be wrong here with the stock ones?
I probably won't upgrade until after I have a reason to, but am just thinking this out.
