Ordered RSX-S front calipers, rotors, pads and hoses today. Going to try to swap the brakes, and bleed the fluid at some point this weekend!

Put a set of Michelin AS3+ on the car, bery good now. Needs shocks. Tried to order Bilsteins, but they are on backorder until the end of May.. boo.

Got the windows tinted today. Window visors showed up today, but can't install them for a few days while the tint dries.. whomp whomp. Here's a crappy picture I took in the rain!

Had some free time today, so decided to put parts on. Started with the Weather Tech window visors.. super simple and I like them so far.

Then went onto the brakes. I ordered RSX-S calipers, brake hoses, rotors, pads, and the bracket bolts. Might have gotten away with re-using the ep3 brake lines, someone on the internet said they were a touch short... but I feel like the rsx-s lines are a touch long. The bracket bolts might be able to be reused too... but for $9 I had them just in case. When I tried to thread them into the bracket by hand they didn't seem to want to go.

Rotor differences, rsx-s on left and ep3 on right.

Installed the brakes and bled everything. Feels pretty decent. Might swap the master cylinder later as I wish the pedal was a little more firm, but it will work for now.

I just did the same thing to my EP3, RSX TYPE-S rotors and calipers on the front. I also replaced the rear pads and rotors, using OEM pads. The difference is insane!
