Good article. Definitely some things I'd like to see myself but it did give a few ideas.

Good to read them confirm that '04-'12 STI front brakes and '08+ rear brakes are a direct bolt-on along with '04 STI front rotors and redrilled '08+ rear rotors. This makes brake swaps quasi-compatible. Next someone needs to find if the newer Subaru hubs bolt on w/ 5x114.3 pattern. Their insight regarding the steering tie rod is interesting, although they're mistaken on the strut having a motion ratio other than 1:1 [disregarding inclination angle or virtually inapplicable absurd force vectors from asinine wheel offsets].

Yeah that is good news indeed. A full STI brake kit upgrade would be what, ~$2500 for everything?

OEM STI 4-pot front calipers/rotors/pads can be gotten for under $800. Rears would be a little less. I'd say $1500 for all four corners, if you buy new parts...find some used ones from some baller that opted for a StopTech BBK and you might score a set up for under a grand.

That is better than I thought. I was just looking online and found some OEM-spec STI rotors (all four), Hawk HPS pads, braided SS lines and brake fluid for $500. Might be a economical way to improve the breaking performance.

That's not a bad price at all

They are SP or Centric brand rotors.

$500 bucks and a weekend in the garage isn't a bad deal imho. While a nice big brake Brembo kit would be nice, probably not worth it until you approach +350-400hp
