    Ahh. Good news. Talked to local mazda and me and the cranky blonde can install the dba4000's and hawk ceramc pads ourselves and not affect the extended warranty as long as I keep getting it serviced with them. He gave me the impression that he though I'd made a wise choice

    Good result there. You get more satisfaction from doing it yourself
    I'd paint the boring OEM calipers while they were off too.
    Good luck

    Have not done mine yet, but want to. Probably blue to match my paint, don't like the boring dull-silver/grey.
    Haven't had the time to do it so far, but if I was ripping my brakes apart, I'd certainly give it a go

    Went to Penrith and swapped the disks over. I can highly recommend mpsgarage. Very helpful. Will do silver caliper and may get motivated and do towbar as well, while cranky blonde changes the disks.

    What?
    What were you doing to rip them up that quickly?
    That is amazing.

    A lot of spirited driving, very late breaking and deep into the corners.

    About the same story with the stock tyres, just short of 20000kms were declared illegal by Mazda dealer lol
