Viggen--9-5 Aero Brake Question

1) Are the front rotors indeed the same between the two cars?

2) Are the pads the same as well?

3) Does anyone have a cheaper online source for either viggen or 9-5 aero(if they're the same) than Nick T? $100/rotor is VERY steep, despite being Brembos... I park on the street and the plow trucks DUMPS salt, which successfully destroyed all 4 rotors in one winter of intermittent driving.
It's not worth it to me for super special rotors.
Thanks,
-Cm

The last Viggen rotors I bought came from Rock Auto, they were the right size and were reasonably priced. There's multiple brands to choose from and there's always a 5% coupon to found for stuff there.

Besides having better pricing almost always, Rock Auto also doesn't play bait and switch games like eEuroparts.com where they advertise free shipping then slip in random shipping and handling charges that aren't shown until the final stage of check out.

As much as I hate USautoparts, and their 15 online companies, Autopartswarehouse is pretty gosh dang good for brakes.

Different car, but I just bought EBC pads/rotors for the front axle of the Matrix for $103 shipped.

Yes, pads and rotors(minus the OEM slots) are the same.

I like the centric premium rotors with the e-coat(Centric 125.38014), I get them from Rock Auto.

I got cryo treated rotors from somewhere(Centric 125.38014CRY from Tirerack?) for my 9-5 5 years ago. They still look brand new.
