    I never really liked it because it drives and handles like shit and it cost a shitload to maintain for a Japanese car pseudo-performance car (ie. $500 front brake jobs every 11K miles).

    56K miles for $20.5K

    Stop being a bitch and learn to do it yourself.

    The pads alone were $250. I have no place to do the work, its illegal to work on cars on DC streets.

    police usually frown on you performing maintenance on your vehicle on the side of the road

    It's fucking sad that some people choose to live in areas where you can't turn a wrench to save yourself a few bucks.

    Brembo pads are pricey :hsughno:

    Its average for the car, a lot of owners on Acurazine are reporting similar wear.
