Thanks, yeah the front rotors are stock, but it has upgraded pads. I'm probably going to get some dustless potorfields and see what rotors are out there.

Shouldn't be too bad

I seem to recall ATE rotors about $50 each, pads can run from $20 to $60 or more. These are not what the dealer will charge but what you can buy via local parts suppliers.

Can't comment on labor as I've never done this job myself. Unless you have to mess with the axle nut or something like that to swap the rotors, should be pretty simple.

I wouldn't upgrade the rears unless you do the fronts at the same time.

I do in fact need new brakes like the dealer says, I was wondering what is a good price I should be looking for IF I kept it stock, this would be new rotors and pads. I'm pretty sure that I will take this opportunity to upgrade my rears unless you guys think it's a waste of times to do an upgrade on the rear brakes. Ugh, this car, hopefully once all this stuff is refreshed it will be the end of big maintenance for a LONG time!
