I disagree with the statement that heat warping is "impossible". It is highly improbable yes but can happen. As I said above it takes some super extreme conditions to do it though. Normal performance driving just does not create those conditions and if you are street driving your passenger car to the point you manage to heat damage (probably a better word than "warp") your rotors you are a menace to society and shouldn't be driving anyway.

I get that itís inconvenient to do brake inspections if you have to remove stuff, but thatís the whole point of routine inspections at a dealer. You pay them to take stuff apart to inspect, same with decent mechanics.

Some people just think ďDIYĒ = cutting as many corners as possible.

1) Go to the first car you see in any parking lot.

2) Look inside the wheels

3) This is what you will see.

Shocking that this is news to some people.
Is the BRZ your first car ?

here's my ranger, which has a similar design dual piston calipers as the brz.


you did say any vehicle.

i can take a picture of my dad's f-150, or my mom's suburban, but those are also dual piston designs, so expect the same thing

Last question.

Is it worth getting Centric PQ Pro?
They have some red abrasive layer?

They are like a few bucks more, so basically the same price.

CENTRIC 50011240 PQ PRO; w/Shims and Hardware Info
Rear; 292mm Front Disc; Vented Rear Disc
$31.89

CENTRIC 50015390 PQ PRO; w/Shims and Hardware Info
Front
$35.79

I know checking your brakes are hard, but is Googling something hard too?

LOL, have you ever tried Googling parts quality ?
It's like Googling about what oil to use.

@Tristor knows his stuff, so I will ask him directly.
