    I'm just curious.

    Have any of you switched the stock brake pads shortly after you received your car and installed ceramic pads to deal with the supposed brake dust issue?

    What is a good make/source for the ceramic pads? I might as well start building my add-ons, lol.

    I went with Z23 and sourced them from summit...your pricing may vary depending on where you shop.

    Absolutely worth it and took longer to pull and reinstall the tires then to install them. Great upgrade.

    Got my Powerstop pads from summit and it took 7 weeks for the fronts to arrive. They work great and the dust is minimal.

    I've been so convinced by all of the positive posts regarding the Z23 brakes pads that I already have a set on hand and my dealer is going to install them for me as part of the dealer prep when my car comes in. I have a projected delivery date of tomorrow, 6/24. (Fingers crossed)

    Is the price on Summit or Jeg's just the front pads or are the rears included too?

    If both fronts and rear, that's a Really good price for performance pads and I think that will go on my mod list.

    Thanks!

    I have not made a switch yet ( 1500 mile mark ) but have them on other cars and love them.

    The Z26-1405 front pads will be available soon....The Z26 is a slightly better pad than the Z23 versions....part numbers are basically the same last 4 digits and the rears are already available. ..rears are Z26-1053 iirc.

    It appears the Z26 uses -1298 to denote the front set.
