Default New brakes coming!

I know I only bought this car 3 months ago, but they turned the rotors before I bought it(warped), and they went through the pads like a fat man going through a Twinkie.
SO, today I ordered a full set of Brembo rotors and Hawk ceramic pads from TireRack. They aren't slotted or anything, but they'll be a huge improvement over the screaming, squealing, ear-piercing, blood-curdling pieces of crap I have right now.
Still planning on doing an F-body brake swap, but I need brakes NOW, and I don't have the money to get the calipers and lines yet, so I'll make do with these.
Pics, of course, will follow (as soon as I get everything put back together).

Holy Toledo, Batman! My el-cheapo brake job from Autozone was like $60.... but I guess you're gettin' the good stuff. Hope it works well and lasts a long time.
