    I replaced all rotors and pads with Brembos on my 13 and yes, they still have the two types of pins. Removed and cleaned, relubed them. Make sure you remove the air bubbles when you insert the rubber covers for the pins.
    I will occasionally have some noise, which I blame the pads. Next time I'll be going with akebonos.

    What kind of noise do you have occasionally? I am using the OEM Ferodos with zero noise (but they are a little dusty).

    Akebonos, and ceramics of any type, are prone to squeal when cold... and often take a very long time to bed in. If all you care about is extremely low dust, great, ceramics are the way to go. I have Akebonos on a couple other cars and can't wait for them to wear out so I can replace the blasted things.

    Usually a little squeaking that goes away after a couple minutes driving and using the brakes. Not very often thought, usually cold or after rain.
