03 WRX Sti Type UK brake pads

Hi guys and ladies

Sorry my first post is a question....i know how much it annoys forum members but i need to know the following

Do i need to use the brakepads offered by my subaru dealer? They cost 200 for front pair and 188 for rear pair. Are there aftermarket ones which are suitable instead and of course not as expensive?

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi.

You don't need to use Subaru main dealer pads. And yes you can use aftermarket pad on your car.

Give Alyn Stockton a ring.
