When I bought my car in October of last year, I noticed it had a bit of vibration when I'd hit the brakes. It wasn't bad, but it was annoying. I picked up a set of Bosch BC1474 ceramic pads and Power Stop AR84000EVC coated rotors from RockAuto. Total including shipping was just over $200. The install was kind of a pain, as I don't believe the rotors or pads had ever been serviced, and I picked up the 4 year old car from Chicago. There was no rust, but the pads were jammed into the calipers pretty good. A lot of 4 letter words and prying finally got the pads out. I cleaned things up with a wire brush, brake cleaner, and then greased the contact points with grease. The new rotors went on and then when I went to put the pads on, I noticed something very strange. They had "ears" that stuck up proud from the caliper. Fortunately they did not hit the wheel. I'm not sure what they're for, other than to give you something to grab onto with a pair of vice grips when you need to pull them out. I've been running them since March, and they have been very good. I always thought the car came with kind of weak brakes, but figured it could have been my old setup that wasn't serviced. That might be the case, but I have no issues with the Bosch. They are silent and produce less dust than the OEM pads. If you don't mind the "ears" they are a good choice. The coated rotors are also still holding up fine and look nice through the wheels, though they haven't had a very hard life so far.
