has anyone had an experience replacing brake pads of their rx8s? I want to know if it's easy enough for me to do it at home. I'm thinking it might save me tons of money to do it myself if it's really easy. if there is some adjustment to make and stuff then I'll probably take it back to the dealer. any suggestion??
I actually asked for an estimate at the dealer and they said it would cost me atleast 300 dollars just to replace the front brake pads. crazy!

yup $300 is ridiculous. Brake pads should cost you about $100-$150 for all 4 depending on what pads you purchase. You'll need some brake fluid and the mentioned tool. You'll need someone to help when you bleed your brakes but other than that you can do it yourself.
