Need opinions on what to do

Ok, so today my dad is flipping out about how my brakes are low, and i need to go to Honda to change em and crap. Ok, now i don't have alot of money for all of this, but he said he wants everything front to back done. Instantly u i thought of how to go about doing this. Oh yeah also my rotors are warped...

Ok here we go what should i do?

go for the brembo blanks and hawk pads... but what about the rear???
go to Honda and be raped in fees
buy some $13 autozone rotors
buy some honda rotors.... (i dont wanna resurface because i read on here that getting them resurfaced is almost pointless, i might as well buy new rotors)
Go some other rotor...

but then what can i do about the backs.... ok so yeah im asking all that know about brakes... what should i do, and how can i put a feasible argument to my dad to not go to Honda and get owned by their technicians..remember im trying for also the lowest cost also. I thank you all greatly

Re: Need opinions on what to do

I just got hawk hps pads, brembo blank rotors and some generic shoes for the back from tirerack.com for ~$170 shipped. i thought that was a decent deal.

Re: Need opinions on what to do

pads are your call. the HPS pads seemed to be a good choice for me, but read up, 'cause they have other ones about the same price. see what you think is gonna work for you

Re: Need opinions on what to do

yea i have been reading up, and like every time i read that the ceramic are mainly what cars use now, and they are pretty good. But the composite are more for just a bump above daily drivers, but still nothing to Auto X in... but like with my "spirited" driving, im guessing the composite should be a good choice.

Gah, y cant more people read this section, cause i need some input.
