Okay first off it looks like my brakes are starting to go for a second time. The first time they resurface the rotors (argue for new rotors but no luck) and replace the pads with "updated" pads.

Here is my musing. If the brakes are going and they can't resurface (which they shouldn't be able to) and have to get new rotors. Do you think I could get the dealership to get the Cross Drilled rotors from acp.com or something similar and I pay the difference. Though knowing parts, the freaking OEM rotors are probably more expensive according to them. I would also get my own brake pads, like Greenstuff I think it was or something, I'm still looking into these.

So think this would be possible to pull of??

Just the results from Friday's bored at work thought process.

My guess is that they would never go for it unless you had some special connections. It's worth a try though. I say go for it. ;)

Rotors can usually be resurfaced 2-3 times. They just have to measure the thickness and see if there's enough left. If the dealer won't fix it under warranty, I'd leave. Find a local Honda/Acura specialist and get the aftermarket stuff installed there. You might talk to them about Comptech rotors and pads. I saw a big Comptech banner in front the shop where I take my car. My rotors are warped again and will probably go that route if its my money I'm spending.

Why would you fix that problem if it isn't covered under warranty if you are planning on the purchase of the 6 speed in the near future? :dunno:

can you visual see warped rotors? or is it just a feeling virbration at high speeds when braking?
You can't usually see the warping of rotors. You just feel it. When they take them off and put them on the machine that resurfaces them, it is easy to tell that they are warped.

Depends on how long I keep the car.
