word, i am going to say this. Take the DOT-5 crap out of your system, before you have a serious problem. You are going to swell the seals in the master cylander, blow them, and have no breaks at all, as well as many other problems *Dot 5 tends to bubble when you use the breaks a lot, such as stop and go traffic*. Our cars were made for DOT-3 for a reason, stick to it, and just get the high-temp version of it.

I went over to Ebay and bought the Brembo cross drilled/slotted rotors with Axis Ultimate pads. They were $360 shipping included if I remember correctly.

Love them so far except for the amount of brake dust that those pads make. It makes my wheels look like they are painted to match my car about a week after washing them.
