Lifetime warranty on the autozone special will last a few years if you don't mind replacing them twice.

I'm upgrading my brakes in the coming months for autox. Good ridge makes stainless steel lines. Centric/stop tech blanks with hawk hps pads. And valvoline dot4.

If there is anything better for DD and light track duty I am interested to hear it.

Our cars have plenty of stopping power. The weakest link is in longevity...and I don't mean fade.

If you are looking for brake performance, the first place to look is tires. Want more? Quality aftermarket blanks and pads. Want to do track days? Setup some ducting.

If you are going for style get a bbk. Not hating.

If you don't track your car, Brembo blanks and some good ceramic pads work just fine. Lighter wheels help too. In fact, that's the biggest improvement I noticed with the much lighter RSX wheels on my car is that braking is noticeably better.
