Unless I'm forgetting something, the only thing that was not "right" or that I had to DIY fix so far is the shape of the back plate on a set of non-RB pads. I'll contact RB about it and report back (maybe I got the wrong pads or maybe they are not aware and might be willing/able to modify their design or....???).I'm not sure I like all the DIY fixes to get things right
Their pad design. They designed a caliper that uses the 06-08 STi or 300zx pads.
So you can order pads from those cars and it will be a direct fit/no mod needed.

Luis, is it supposed to be STi pads? Coz the website just says "wrx" so I think I got regular wrx pads (I'm not even sure if they are different but will look them up later). Must... stop... forum-ing and get... back....to........ work (need more $$$ for more modz )
I got a reply from Warren noting that the RB pads comply to the standard FMSI shape D647 and he reference this pic:
So... I guess even though the EBC PN DP41200R is the pad they list for both WRX and 300ZX, it does not fit the "standard" shape. Oh well. I guess if you buy this kit, this is just one thing to keep in mind - that you need pads that look like the above or need to be willing and able to dremel / hacksaw the front tab and front corners off a bit to make them fit. I found a site that has pics of the pads I got (though I did not buy from them - got through amazon for about 30 bucks less and free shipping).
