Looking good!
I noticed they don't list the Abarth on their website - just Fiat 500 2012 ?

Ive been selling stuff form them on my other sites for years great stuff. I sell them for the fiats also just havent had a chance to update my site. I do recommened their premier series vs the eline series. They are coated and better materials. I need to call steven there and I will ask maybe getting a better deal for the forum members thru me since i'm a distributor.

depends on how much you use the fat pedal gr_grin, I ordered my Abarth without brakes & blinkers - weight savings and all.....trying to keep that down as much as possible silly

I found that greasing my rotors made them last longer.

My front is eat up very bad, only 24k! I drive very normal, i never had to change rotor that fast with my others cars except my MB GL450. the OEM needs to replace less than 14k

R1 concepts has some good stuff. I switched to them after OEM on my old TSX, and they lasted quite awhile. OEM TSX rotors used to warp easily, but the R1s never warped.

They are close enough to me that I go pick them up at the factory. Good to know they are available for our cars.

Same. I only have abouy 7.5k on my car and i can get a fingernail on the inner/outer edges of the pad area of the rotor. Never saw that before on any of my cars with that little mileage.

the good thing is, the OE rotor and pad didn't make any annoying noise

Thats the nature of the beast when it comes to drilled/slotted rotors. Always going to have some form of noise comming from them either by themselves or under braking from the air moving across the rotor surface or through them.

posi quiet don't have ceramic for the front, only the rear has it! So I use posi quiet semi metallic on the front and ceramic on the rear. I have 500 miles on it so far so good!
