Cosworth brake upgrade

I just bought a new 11 wrx, and thinking about putting a brake kit on it. Do they have these yet for these models yet? i know they have them for the 11 sti models(which i wouldn't think it mattered anyway, but wanted to be sure)......thanks for your help

Pure curiosity, why do you feel you need a big brake kit?

Do some reading up on this topic if you haven't yet dude. It's debated a lot, but I land on the "If it's not broke don't fix it side." Brake fade usually isn't something a dd will experience.

The stock rotors and pads are "good enough". But I get a lot of brake dust on my 06 STi. Enough that I bought black rims for the summer so it doesn't show as much. I don't think it is necessarily a bad idea to upgrade them. But like the other dude said. It is a brand new car, you don't really need to at this point unless you start modding, then it would be a good idea.

a one time hard stop (accident) your set up will be as good as any other set up you can think of. if you wanna race then you'll need better pads and stuff. if you want to stop shorter one time (like before an accident) then you can being bone stock, upgrade tires to like a RE11. STI fronts can be done but i havent seen any succsess with the rears. im sure it can be done but why pay so much for something that really doesnt help all that much.
