Question How do I tell if my brakes are brembo or standard?

Guys,

I'm getting ready to replace the rotors (again!!!!) on my '04 G35 w/ sport suspension (Black). I see that there are a lot of styles out there (slotted, drilled, etc.).

How do I tell if my brakes are the brembo package or just the standard ones? Any recomendations out there for a good aftermarket brand and where to purchase?

Anything to avoid the stealership!!!!! I paid around $500 to repalce fr pads/rotors last time and after 15k they are already squealing.

Thanks!

You have a lot to learn about your car, thanks goodness you're a member here. Spend some time reading through this site, expecially the stickies at the top of each forum. You might need one of these though Click the image to open in full size. as I'm sure more sarcastic replies are coming.

the 03 and 04 models have brembo. I think the calipers are bright yellow and say brembo on them with big black letters. after o4 they just started making a bigger pad with non-brembos.

This falls into the category of...if you have to ask, you don't have them.

All joking aside OP, welcome to the site. It's a tough crowd around here because the same old regulars see the same common questions pop up time after time. Just do a search whenever you have a question and chances are it has been talked over, debated, and somebody has gotten their feelings hurt over it already.
