Those prices seem a little lower than the usual…but I bet
the rotors are brembo, not factory.
There is a difference…the factory rotors are cast much better
than the brembos.
The factory rotors were much smoother on my car than the brembos have
I got ferodo pads from sicp, and they seem well made, but the brakes
are not, and have not been as smooth as they were when I first got
the car, but they have not cracked in half like some of the other brands
I would replace the rotors with the pads…my rotors are getting a
bit of a sharp edge around the outside, and since the price is
reasonable, I would do the front rotors…its actually easier to do
Check the pins and lube them. If they look bad, replace them.
They should be smooth and rust free.
The Crank Position Sensor has nothing to do with the starter, or running
While its called a crank speed sensor, or a crank positive sensor,
its actually the Crank Position Sensor.
It tells the engine CPU when to fire the injectors and plugs,
but has nothing to do with the starter.
The starter problem could be a key switch problem, a relay problem,
or a very very rare starter problem.
If it is a starter problem, it could likely be serviced(cleaned and
lubed) as it sounds like the bendix is sticking…

I called SICP today, and suprised at the quote I recieved:
Seems they have dropped thier prices as mentioned in an earlier post. A few
does the list recommend factory pads?
is it a good idea to replace the rotors on each pad replacement?
should the guide pins be replaced each time
I am experiencing a slight “run on” by the starter after the engine
fires…maybe a second or two. Does this seem like the starter not diengaing
immediately, or would the Crank Speed Sensor cause a similar situation? What
is the going price for a CSS?
