Recapping: Pontiac G6 Brembo (Cobalt SS) Front Brake Updade

Pardon me, I've lived my life with stock brakes (and worse). This is my first major brake upgrade.

The pads on my G6 are coming due for replacement. Since I have a GM Protection Plan, the calipers are covered under warranty for another 40,000 miles. I want to use GM parts so I can keep that going, and the Cobalt SS pad/caliper upgrade caught my eye.

My understanding is I can just have my dealer or a shop throw on the Cobalt SS Brembo Caliper (Part 25900763) and Brembo Pads (Part 25808929). No modification required.

Anything missing there? Want to make sure before I go in quoting costs locally to do the job.

You would need the calipers and pads, but also the pin kits and rotors as well. Stainless steel brake lines arent a bad idea either

However, Im not to sure your warranty is going to cover calipers if you use calipers from a different vehicle

Is that all rims or just the base? My V6 has the GT's 17-inch rims... I'm surprised they would hit up against those, but if so I can believe it. I just never read that was needed for the brake job.
