^ theyre not, theyre just cheap rotors.
youd be better off checking with them site sponsor. someone on the forum got a set for similar price and it wasnt some unheard of ebay brand.

When it comes to actual sh1t that matters on your car (brakes and other sh1t that you don't want braking at the most inappropriate time) even I wouldn't buy it from eBay. (Lights and other random BS are ok)

its not about ebay, its about the brand of sh1t.
Corey, you can cheap out on rear rotors, and pads, sine they do less than 30% of the braking, but for fronts, OE or better.

i'll check into it some more. i won't be able to buy anything until next week (cuz glenn's taking 3/4 of my paycheck this week... haha) anyway, so yeah. i need help. i posted a thread asking for suggestions w/links on BFC, but they just rattled off brands and went on with whatever else they were doing.

My brakes were bought from Turner Motorsport. http://www.turnermotorsport.com/html/index.asp

I paid $390.XX shipped to my door for front & rear cross-drilled rotors, front and rear low dust pads, front & rear wear sensors, and 1 liter or fluid.

those in that ebay link arent oem.
click my sig and call Ruben tell him i sent you, see what he can do for you.
have the last 7 of your vin ready.

plus all that fancy cross drilled sh1t looks cool, but its money wasted on a commuter car. slotted, is ok since they actually even out pad wear and sh1t, but more important than all of that, is getting a zinc or cadmium plated rotors. These wont rust and look cleaner and cooler, for longer.

IIRC Ruben doesn't answer PM's or it takes him forever. Call him is way quicker. And Snik's real name is Rhon (the H is silent)
