I can almost guarantee that's for new pads, and resurfacing the rotors. The factory pads list at $140.52, and the rotors list between $149.95 to $160.02/ea. So you're looking at $440.42 minimum just for parts, and that's IF the dealer sells them at list, which most don't.Quoted $487 for just the fronts.
Seems high, yes?
I've done brakes on my Ram and older Elantra, but was worried about the Genesis brakes. Should I just do them myself?
Hi what about the regular pro stop rotors, ? Going to use the pro stop ceramic z23 pads,It's very easy to change the pads on the Genesis. If you're doing it yourself, you will spend less than half of what the dealer quoted you for the fronts. I spent about $420 with shipping & taxes for both front and rear pads and rotors. I went with the Power Stop, drilled and slotted from Rockauto.com & look and perform great. There are cheaper options as well from there and other sources.
I considered cheaper ones but cannot comment on those as I haven't tried them. Personally, I find myself always spending more for something that's not the cheapest option when it comes to replacing pads and rotors. I like the look of a slotted and drilled rotor, and wanted the additional coating on the rotors to limit the amount of rust that you typically find on many rotors. The cheapest option do not have this. Also I like the idea of a pad that might potentially have a bit more performance.Hi what about the regular pro stop rotors, ?

Thanks for the input. I'm leaning towards new just for the convenience factor.I'd go new. Sure, they cost a bit more but others have not fared well with resurface, especially if they had ussues starting out.
While resurfacing was common a few decades ago it seems rotors are made different now and it does not work as well.
