    It’s SO nice now when you get home after a cruise that you can actually still see the word “Brembo” on the calipers! Well maybe not that dirty. LOL I replaced all four corners of mine with Z23's at 3500 kms. The rears, just because I wanted to. I don’t notice any difference in braking and still quiet as yet. Great mod and a set of OEMs for a spare. Rear pads are much wider than the Brembos as well.

    Edit.......I just confirmed what was a mystery (for me anyway) when I first got my 2020 of the reason my OEM Brembo rear pads only contacted a section and not the whole/or or at least most of the disc face. A bulletin came out from FCA about this last year…..Noise Issue. The first pic in the link shows the front 2 pc rotor for some reason. The second shows the exact wear pattern I had before changing to powerstops.

    Pads are 60$, not a big deal. As for the 5 scats, yes I switch a lot but I drive a lot for work, 30-35k a year so me keeping a car for a year based on the average of 12k is really 3 years of driving are the powerstops the same for 2021?

    Haven’t had to do any other maintenance on these cars other than tires and oil.

    Now I have a client that owns a private dealer and dodge dealer so that now helps with the cost of buying and selling.

    But yes, some spend money on drugs, girls, gambling, traveling, whatever … this is my love so the wifey doesn’t complain lol…

    Agreed and if I installed them myself, you know it’s not hard. I haven’t ever done the rears as they don’t seem to dust like the 6 piston ones so I figure less work for my lazy a$$ lol.

    I ran Power Stop's Z37 on my BR9 pursuit brakes and yeh, they dust low but have terrible cold bite and will hot spot like any other ceramic. No magic as far as I'm concerned. Just another ceramic pad.
    Back to semi-metallic and better braking, less prone to hot spotting and I just wash the car when it needs it.
