I stick with Wagner brake replacement parts from RockAuto. Always perfect quality and fit. I don't take chances when it comes to brakes, I want the best quality.

I use to purchase Raybestos but found their quality has gone way down on the brake products that they are making in China.

He has good ebay feedback, and if you do some google searches they come back with positive evaluations in various forums. Might be worth trying.

Looks very similar to what I put on my Delta, including the ceramic pads, although I used Akemodo. While I found that ceramic doesn't stop my car as quickly as semi or metallic pads did, the type of streets I drive on here require quick (and frequently hard) braking constantly.

Six months and no rotor warpage and no squealing. I'm very satisfied with this combo.

Just put on the Brake Motive front rotor kit with ceramic pads on my GXP this past weekend, no compalints with 100 miles so far. The finish on them is a bright silver (really stands out) and in hindsight I think I would prefer a gold finish on the rotor when the car is a white color.

And yes they do stop much better then the old worn out rotor and pads!
