Can't believe no one has mentioned GSL?

Ive bought two sets of rotors and pads from them...awesome service and cheapest i've found in Australia.

Check in the vendor section as they are a vendor on here.

If you contact Crusin (Mark) on Liberty ASN he was easily the cheapest for DBA Rotors.

I personally am a fan of Dixcel M pads for road use. Almost dust free but work very well. Type Z for track however i have used Type M at Collie. Available fromnGarage88 in Sydney. Dixcel rotors are exceptional as well but expensive.

Hey G3ng. What's your application for the car?
100% street driven?
Street driven with some nice spirited driving a bit?
Street + occasional track?

It's good to choose pads based on your driving style and how hard you push the car. People can help you to narrow down the type of pads you look at if you let them know your car's use/intended use.

If it is just daily driven, the normal DBA T2 street series rotors + QFM HPX pads will be more than enough along with some fresh fluid (should be okay with the OEM fluid). Should stop better than the stock stuff without costing too much either.

If you track it lightly (the odd skidpan/trackday) DBA T3 4000's + QFM A1RM's + Dot4 fluid. I'll give you the same advice given to me by a certain Sir Kato. Cheap Dot4 fluid + regular flushing = winning (and saving money).

I have the T3 4000's + A1RM's + Dot4 (T2's + HPX pads on the rear) and they are fine on the street and at RAC for skidpans and tuning arvos. However they tend to struggle a little at Barbagallo after a couple of flying laps.

To answer your question. Yes 4000's will fit (they are model specific) no problems. Same with pads as long as you check they are to suit your model.

As mentioned, GSL rallysport are great to deal with price wise + customer service. Give them a go.
