I supplied the Hawk Ceramic pads and the dealer charged me $153 to install them.

Then that price isn't bad. Time is $$ and it takes a little time to pull all 4 calipers, turn the rotors, and reinstall. Many dealerships charge $85+/hour so figure in 2-3 hours book time.

Many times, you don't need to turn your rotors. A quick pad change is all that's needed. Lots of people only change their fronts, if it's the first pad change. The fronts wear a lot faster than the rears. Then change all 4 the next time. If you're considering this, be sure to check the rear pads to see how they are wearing. Many vendors here sell brake pads. If you're wanting to eliminate the brake dust, the ceramic pads are a great option. You do lose a little braking performance though. The Hawk street performance pads are good pads that will dust less than stock and give better braking performance.

Lots of options and things to consider. Pull your wheels and check everything out to see which options will work for you.

Alot of people are not willing to do the work involved to change their own brake pads. Even for a red-headed idiot, if you have never done it and have no experience with working on cars, it's not that easy.

$550 is too much but what do expect from a dealer.
You DO NOT need to cut your rotors when you change your breaks every time. This is an old myth or way of thinking. Only time you cut them is if you somehow gouged out a spot in them with a rock or something or let your breaks go so long that they cut into them. If you buy quality ceramic or composite breaks, they will last a long time and not warp your rotors. You can buy breaks for just about any car at Autozone, PepBoys etc. Just don't be frugal and go for the cheapest ones. Like is said, if you buy good composites break pads you can get great stopping power and minimal dust

True. You DO NOT need to change your oil filter each time you do an oil change either.

If your pads are worn enough to warrant changing, you either need to turn the rotors or replace them. Look at the outside edge. Is there a ridge? They're worn enough for your cheap ass to wind up in the morgue.

If you need, it would be cheaper to give one of us gas money or fly us there to do it, and buy the parts.

Lol.

Yep, the maintenance on these 5th gens is pretty expensive. If you don't DIY. I'll be honest brakes aren't my forte but think I will ask my bro for some help. Not sure about the resurfacing/ turning rotors though. Where would one go to get the rotors done? Is it ur local auto parts place?

I'm have some serious problems with my brakes on my '13 SS Brembo brakes. I recently installed ceramic pads to eliminate squeaky which was coming from the stock OEM pads. I am now hearing even more squeaking. Can anyone recommend me some good brake pads or suggestions. Also think I may go back to semi metallic pads because the stopping power on the ceramics arent as great.

I would go with the Hawk ceramic pads and turn the rotors only if needed. There is a YouTube video on how to change the. Real easy to do!!
