Default Upgrading Rotors & Pads

Hi guys, I am looking to upgrade my rotors and pads of my stock WRX MY06, just wondering what ones are good price for daily driving and dust free pads. Ive been looking at DBA 4000 rotors and pads not sure yet there is too many. Would DBA 4k rotors n pads fit on a stock subaru calipers?
Cheers

Maybe try Project Mu rotor with spec B pads from Mao@EvoR? It's very well priced.

+1 for DBA, that's what I have on the front.

QFM do some nice pads and are australian so helps support locals etc. I have the HPX's which have a much better bite than stockers. Can also do the A1RMs but they produce a lot more dust and are more suited to track days.

thanks for the suggestion guys,
The project mu might cost a fair bit right?
98killrs and Marti - could you tell me price of all 4 DBAs, model and brake pads if you know? n would they fit on REX MY06 subaru calipers or will I need to change them too.

Why don't you contact a local supplier, or look in the forum vendors section and pm them for pricing?
As long as you get the correct rotors and pads to suit your calipers you won't have to change them

Yep contact a few local suppliers, DBA are definitely a lot cheaper than Project Mu I can't remember prices off the top of my head though.

As yes they'll bolt straight on, didn't take me too long to do at home, maybe an hour or two with beer breaks.
