    I bought mine on eBay 2 months ago for 75$ it was oem and fit perfectly and works like new. Lemme see if the guy still selling them.

    Edit: WOW oblivious me I was thinking you had a STS. That is odd that the STS third brake lights are so much cheaper...

    Re: My Laundry list of issues with $$ Amount

    Just a quick update. I been shopping around town for brakes and rotors and wow the more I look the more and more that Dealership quote sucks a veiny one. Called Part Source earlier today and the best they had was some thermo brake pads and rotor...im assuming thats a brand...anyways did the math and I can get it all for $672.78 tax included. A far cry from the $610 per axle. Also, do any of you guys know anything about these Hawk HPS performance Street? Two stores in the city have them im calling them tommorow for quotes.

    Did you take a look at www.r1concepts.com for rotors? They have a great rep around here and you could buy ceramic pads elsewhere and save even more money.

    ^^^^^what he said. R1 should be able to get you slotted and cross drilled all around with good ceramic pads for around or less than the parts source quote. They will be FAR better brakes too!

    just a fyi, mechanic at dealers are not all the same. you can always call around to other dealers. i know fires hand that a firestone was going to charge me double labor for a outer tie rod and double the parts price. i found a dealer and they were way better on price and had me in and out.

    That he did lol. I remember josney was the recent one who got them but I couldn't remember what he paid. That's an awesome deal for brakes all around. If I remember correctly josney posted afterwards that they were a great upgrade over stock. So go with that setup!
