Brembo brakes replacement

Hi everyone,

I need your knowledge in terms of how much does it cost to replace the OEM brembo brake pads and the overall maintenance of it in a dealership. I heard from a friend that it will cost me around $6,200 CAD and that's too expensive. Please, I need help, this will be the first time I'm replacing the pads since I bought my 15' evo x, it's around 25,000km.

pads only?
Go with a pad that goes with your driving style.
If its just pads I recommend you do the pads. It literally takes longer to remove the wheel than to replace the pads.
You need a hammer, blunt nail set, channel lock and a piece of cardboard to protect the calipers.
Also Whatever you go with make sure you bed them in the correct way or your just wasting brake money!

If anyone is charging you more than 600 bucks to do brakes on your car, get out. There isnt about anything on the car short of replacing all the hard lines and bleeding the ABS unit that would cost that much.

Do the job at home. You need a hammer, a small punch (I used an allen head 3/8ths socket), a small screwdriver/pry bar a toothbrush, brake cleaner, and brake caliper grease.

I used Syl-Glide, but the green permatex stuff is a good one to use as well. I took the time to literally polish each brake caliper after I got the pads out (5 mins each wheel, I shit you not) and I spent maybe 2 hours on my car. I had a lot of pad dust and fallout I wanted to clean out of there.

I heard the same ridiculous cost from Carriage Mitsubishi in Gainesville, GA. I bought the rotors and pads and they STILL want to charge almost a $1000 to so this and perhaps bleed the system which they didn’t clarify. They said roughly $240 per axle. They are out of their minds...

Wondering what happen to our PoorArts....

If we are talking just PADS, and if you replace them yourself, they should cost you no more than $300 (More in CAD). I use Stoptech pads, they are cheap, quite dusty and squeaky, but good enough for daily and last hell of a long time compare to stock.

For $6000, they better be a Brembo big brakes 6 pistons upgrades...

Go aftermarket. For an OEM replacement get Hawk perfromance streed pads or girodisk magic pads. Take it to any outside shop you wil probably save 4-5k

You could buy all new pads and rotors for all 4 corners, drive the car to me, pay me to change them all out, and drive back home for less than a 1/3rd of what they want to charge you.

Well, yes that is an absurd amount. But it probably is about right considering hes taking it to the dealer and they are quoting him for all OE stuff. Pricing out Brembo pads and rotors through the dealer will hurt.

OP, like everyone said, buy after market brakes. They will probably work better and cost a fraction of that price. And if you can learn to do it yourself, even better. Taking out the pads takes 2 mins.
