My 2009 GT-R has over 22,000 miles on it, and this coming February will mark the three years I've owned it. I've only brought it to the track once, so the rest has been normal city/highway driving (well, what's considering normal driving for a GT-R!). Last year I bought another car (2005 S4) to be my daily driver, so now I only drive my GT-R to work one day a week, if it's clear and dry out, as well as using it to make weekend trips, under the same conditions. Can someone point me to a post on here that talks to having the first brake service, what I can expect to pay, and what some of my options are?

Thanks!

Are they cracked at all? The dealer will tell you you need to do it all at once, but you can do just pads.

Look at your pads to see, My GTR had 44k miles on it when i did the brakes and the fronts were pretty worn (little life left) and the rears i could have left

I did
DBA slotted rotor rings (about $700-725 a set shipped front or rear)

EBC Yellow stuff pads front and rear ($350-375 for front and rear)

and flushed/bleed the full system with ATE super blue fluid ($15-20 a can or so) (1 can should be enough) I used a Motive power bleeded and had 2 cans (knock over part of a can and bleed it to make sure all the old fluid was out and still had between 1/2 and 3/4s of the 2nd can left)

My car stops better then stock in my opinion,

I didn't do SS lines, but you can get the Goodridge lines for about $200

There was a tech bulletin to all GT-R dealers that you can machine the rotors once... It is recommended to replace all brake pads, though.
