I don't believe so, they should've came with Platinums.
When I didnt work at Autozone I used to do all kinds of research on parts and part numbers BEFORE I ever stepped foot into the local autoparts store.
For something like a spark plug maybe thats a good idea. But for like brake pads or rotors or something like that, it seems kinda stupid to have to.
I cant stand autoparts stores. They always act like your stupid for asking any question. The autozone by me is basically run by drug addicts and they dont care about you or anything you buy. They often let lines build up and shout across the store for someone to get behind the counter.
They always think they know more than you about your car too. I had to buy an upper radiator hose for my STE before and I went into the store and told them what I needed and the guy says "we have one in stock, let me go get it." So he brings it out and I look at it and immediately tell him its not the right one. He said that it said right there that it was the part number, so I calmly explained that that was the part listed for the N/A 3.1 and I specifically told him it was the turbo one. He told me that it didn't matter. So then I had to calmly explain to him that it did matter because the turbo cars got a different radiator so there was more room for the Intercooler. Then the guy still didn't believe me, so I went out to the car and physically showed him that it wouldn't fit, and when I opened the hood up he said "oh wow...it is a turbo." Its like he didn't believe me or something...if I tell you I have this car with this engine, thats what I have give me that part, if I tell you the wrong car or engine, thats my own damn fault. Then he started asking me questions about it, because he didn't believe that it was stock even though it was listed in his damn computer. Then he proceeded to tell me that they don't carry the part for the turbo car, only 25 minutes later. So I definately let them know how I felt when I left half of my tread in their parking lot on the way out.
