So the mk4 I purchased came with an AP Racing big brake kit using 13.5" diameter, 36mm thick rotors and CP5555 6 piston calipers. I have looked into the cost for replacement pads and rotors and found that for each rotor the price is about 350$, and pads are between 200-400$ depending on brand and material qualitys.
My question to other guys who actually track their car with BBK's do you find that the pads and rotors last a lot longer then stock stuff? There is no way I can afford to replace this stuff constantly at these prices where OEM stuff is a lot cheaper. I love the brakes but want to know if I am looking at having to spend $1k every couple of track days just for front brake components.
Any opinions or testimonials appreciated. And if you have found a cheap place to purchase AP rotors that would also be great information to post up.
