Are you out of the 80,000 KM (50,000 mi)/4 yr free Maint/Warranty? if not, the dealer should take care of it without charge. I've used TireRack in the past with good results.

Centric Rotors are essentially StopTechs. They're the same company.

Not bad, though, I'd recommend checking out NEXTMOD Ottawa, to see if they can get you some rotors for a good price.

If you're upgrading, I usually like to do something like:

Pads
Slotted Rotors
Fluid
Lines

Gives the car a whole new feel. I also try and do Pads/Rotors together, as old Rotors will wear new pads Unevenly, and new pads will wear unevenly on older rotors too.

That's with OEM Parts though? That's not too bad.

Though, I just like to get an upgrade when stuff on my car wears out.

That sucks about the brake coverage being a "cost" option. They must know you guys abuse your brakes!
