$100 bucks for all four corners?? Sounds like a good deal to me. You'd spend more than that buying new pads and rotors.

^ Correct. That's really the point... since the calipers on an RS are the same as on a WRX :) The brackets are just different, to allow for bigger rotors/pads... so make sure those are part of the deal.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, you may just want to try and track down the brackets. You don't need the calipers or the lines (since they are the same as on your car) and you should really use new rotors and pads anyway. The brackets are $120 new btw, so if you find a set of calipers/brakets/lines/pads for $100, just use the brackets and sell the rest.

Unless you're talking about the 4 pots... no, they're the same. Although 03+ WRX/RS calipers are a little different from 02 WRX (and 98-02 RS) calipers.
