Default Brakes and rotors

I know agrazela has found some bendix brakes and rotors on ebay. What i am wondering is if anyone has found any that would fit my brothers 2000 bonneville se. He is in the market for them and i dont want to have him spend the money at advanced if he can get them cheaper.

Looks good to me.

(Sucks that us 92-99 guys get ganked on rotor costs, because manufacturers know that they warp often.)

What is everyones input on ceramics on the back along with good rotors? worth the extra money? or just use a cheap rotor and like duralast semi metallic brakes?
