GM owns a large stake in Fuji Heavy Industries which owns Subaru. Basically the 9-2x linear is a impreza 2.5ts wagon and the 9-2x aero is a wrx wagon with minor trim details and exterior modifications. They also have the 9-7x sport utility vehicle coming out this year which is basically a chevy trailblazer with trim mods.

So Subaru is now tainted by the Big Three as well? Super. I never had much faith in them to begin with, and now it's safe to stay away from them entirely. Thanks for the info.

Yes. Saabs that are Subarus..it is a global car world out there now. Fords, Mazdas, and Volvos on the same platforms make for lower engineering costs and faster times to the showroom. Subaru still builds a nice car and has not been GM tainted too bad as yet. Not as bad as the GM tainted Daewoos being sold as Suzukis for sure. It leads to a bunch of new names for cars...like Saabaru..........

$300 brake discs were enough to keep me away from the STi. Imagine spending $1k for two new OEM front rotors and OEM pads before the install. That's incomprehensible for a street vehicle.

Anyone who spends that kind of money on oem parts without first seeing how much cheaper & beter the aftermarket rotors are deserves to spend it.

I looked high and low for reasonably priced 2004 STi discs. They don't exist. Reasonable is $65 just like a MkIV Supra. Show me these discs.

Also, who makes a "better" rotor than Brembo?

The Prodrive rotors are 2 piece rotors that are cheaper than OEM.

Being 2 piece they are significantly lighter than the brembo's since the hat portion can be made of lightweight alloy.

They also use a better Vane design that disipates heat faster and more efficiently.
