Info from a few of the "official" Subaru OEM parts sites. They all seem to have the exact same products expect prices differ.
Questions:
1) Does anyone know if 26296FL05A or 26296FL030 front brakes and hardware (26298fl01b or 26298FL001) are interchangeable for a 2018 Impreza limited?
2) What is the difference between these products? Must be some difference, since 26296FL030 not listed as "fitting" 2019 or newer Impreza and 26296FL05A fits all Imprezea model/year.
3) What does "Description: 10 brakes" (26296FL05A) and "Description: 11 brakes" (26296FL030) refer too?
4) Look at the price of the Brake Pads Hardware Kit - Subaru (26298FL001) --- OUCH!

Going to order the 26296FL05A and hope my hardware still in good shape, but I was curious why there was "choices".

The 10 and 11 refer to the brake rotor diameter. The sport trim has the larger brakes, I dont have experience with the other trim levels to know if any of them were available in the larger size as well.

I'm also just guessing on the hardware question, but maybe one is the old model for earlier years and an improvement was made in the newer ones that can also be backward compatible to the older ones? But the older ones can not go forward to the newer cars. Again, just a guess from things I've seen in the past on other vehicles.
