I had a deer walk out in front of me, I stood on the pedal it stopped with so much force it tried to pull me to the floor I had to scoot back in the seat afterward. I will recommend these to anyone, I've had them a month now with no issues.

If you do a proper break in, you will get the performance out of them that you would expect. If you get the powerstop 1 click kit it comes with powerstops ceramic pads.

good to hear. hoping for similar results on my 2012.

my current rotors are also pretty grooved. which is disappointing for the mileage. But they'd definitely need cut.

in the end I think this kit was worth the $. hopefully I get similar performance to yours.
