I never know pricing since pricing can vary from retailer to retailer.

As for the PI, what year is yours again? If I remember I will check on Monday.

How do they affect the rotors? I had a ceramic clutch(centerforce) in my Stealth and it chewed up my flywheel in 20,000KM. Very little wear on the clutch, but one dead flywheel.

Ceramic typically is a bit more harsh. The general rule is that with ceramic pads you have a 1:1 change ratio (meaning when you change the pads, you change the rotors).

Is that you in the pic, styling the green hat?

Now personally, for an ad for brakes, i think a better pic would be just a road going straight off a cliff. On the right side you see a car, on the left, two tire marks going right off the edge. Slogan? "Which would you choose?"

Haha! I WIN!

My new rotors are starting to warp after 10K miles so if I put on ceramic pads I guess I can look forward to changing the brakes at every oil change

You have it backwards. Cermaic pads are more agressive, so when the pads need changing, so will the rotors. NOT when you change the rotors you'll need to change the ceramic pads, although it's a good idea to.

Why are you having so much problems with your rotors? My stock rotors only had slight warpage at the time I changed them. My current rotors are doing excellent.

Honeywell has been looking to sell off it's Friction Materials business for many years, even before I started. There is a deal in the works for Federal-Mogul to buy it. The deal most likely won't be signed until the second half of the year. The deal isn't written in stone so it may not go through, but all indications are that it will. If it does go through, since Federal-Mogul has it's own design team (they do the brand name Wagner) it's doubtful that I will be joining their team. I'm not even sure what CAD package they use. Since I'm a contract worker, I'm double screwed. Basically I'll be back to square one with submiting my resume. I can submit it to Federal-Mogul or to Honeywell for some other division (I wonder if Garett turbochargers are looking for anybody).

Needless to say I will be polishing my resume and looking for a new job.

Torque your lug nuts correctly if you want to keep your rotors.
