Just had a local independent shop in Phoenix replace all pads and all rotors on my Boxster S.

Here is the cost:

Front Rotors - Zimmerman Coated - $155 each = $310

Rear Rotors - Zimmerman Coated - $147 each = $294

Front OEM Pads - Genuine OEM - $189 pair

Rear OEM Pads - Genuine OEM - $149 pair

4 brake sensors - $50 set of four

Labor - $300

$1374 out the door. Seems high but since I have 19" wheels I can admire their work quite easily and they did a great job. Nice to see the car have nice shiny brand new brake parts all around. Now for some new tires.....

The holes are pretty but rotors with no holes are better. The rotors with holes will eventually show hairline cracks and you'll have to replace them before they're worn down to minimum thickness. Not to mention the extra brake dust you need to deal with.
