    I don't know why people are so surprised by this. Everyone knows it is expensive to maintain a Ferrari, I don't see how this is any different. :mamoru:

    i guess i could just buy the pads and have a friend who knows what he's doing install them...so that saves me $300 on labor.

    Stock rims?

    I would run like 265's push for 275's if you have aftermarket rims wide enough. 275's would look mean from the back plus 245/275 set up FTMFW !
