Default Ceramic Pads On clearance!!!!

This is heads up to you guys... My Brother needed new pads on the front of his 99 Bonneville!! So when he got to the house for me to put them on, he had these Friction Master Ceramic Pads from Advance Auto Parts Store http://shop.advanceautoparts.com





he said he paid $25 for them... I was like wow!! So I go online the ther website and the same store has the Friction master ceramic pads for my GXP for $9.99 on clearance and only one left!! Now I don't know anything about this company (Friction master) nor have i heard anything good or bad about their pads.. But For $9.99 I may get a set! I just put Cmax Ceramic pads on the GXP about 2 months ago so i will be keeping these pads for a while.. So anyone looking for some good pads at a great price check it out...

If some one has heard anything about this company or the pads please post it here...

At first it looked like they had some, but then in the cart it said "only 0 quantity is available. Please choose another quantity."

It'd be a good deal if you could pair it with some other things, because once you add shipping, the price doubles.

Sounds like local pickup would be the best option here.

That'* what blows about Advance Auto'* online shopping. Unless the part is common enough, it always tells you "check store for availability" and it will not give you the option to check out.

I guess if you were motivated you could call the store and haggle with them to match the online price, but I've never gone that far as I can usually find the same or comparable part just as cheap elsewhere.

My local Advance will price match ANYONE, including their own website prices.... give it a shot.
