The front brake rotors on my car are a bit warped, and I find it annoying.

If I get the rotors machined - do the pads need to be replaced as well!

some rorors are reasonably price now, consider new ones, and yes I would replace the pads

Hmm, I wonder if it can wait then.

Looking at the prices for Honda parts, front rotor $190, front pads $112.Not sure if there are enough pads for 1 or 2 wheels either.

It's not that noticeable around town, but more so when I've got a few digits on the speedo and use the brakes.

are they gold plated

Be nice if they were.Was dealer pricing, since they'd be doing it anyway, it's due for a service soon.

go to repco or BNT if you have one.get after market parts will be half the price, get your service done at local garage, franchise charge way to much.

but watch some of the cheaper brake pads or you may squeeeeeeck to a stop when they are cold.

No you don't need to.
Honda's generally have very good brakes and genuine pads are definitely worth while it you want it to stay that way.

Cool beans

But get the discs from Autostop or BNT, Honda will still fit them or even quote for them if you ask.

your kidding right!

$114.02 ea for rotors from BNT.282mm so too big to have them machined off the car, $40ea at Undercar to get them done but they have to be off the car first. Hmm.

Hmm well the dealer says over the phone that it's $75 to machine both fronts.They decide whether or not to replace the pad when they see it.

Safe R Brakes were $142.60 to machine both fronts.
