That sounds about right for a full set of rotors, and by my calculations it works out cheaper or the set of the EBCs which are sold in pairs rather than individually.

Found an article that reviews the drilled rotors made by autospecialty.

I'll have to go re-check my math, CdnoilRam, but the package on eBay is $285 total (Free shipping) for all 4 rotors and two sets of ceramic brake pads.

MightyBlueRam - That looks like a pretty good review... I'm impressed. I appreciate you pointing me to that!

Also, I got a response to my question that I had asked the other day about warranties on the eBay listed Brake Rotors and Pads set:
Quote:
The warranty is:
We guarantee proper fitment of the parts on your vehicle. We offer a a 45 day return policy from the date of shipment. All returns must be in new condition ready to re-sell. Shipping cost will not be refunded. Returns require a Returned Goods Authorization (RGA). Please contact us at (888)441-8808 to request the RGA number. There is no restocking fee if you have an RGA number clearly written on your package. All rotors have a 1 year warranty against cracking, and a 90 day warranty against rotor warping when purchased with our brake pads. Replacement parts or a refund may be used to honor the claim at our discretion. The warranty is non-transferable. All warranty claims require a proof of purchase. No additional fees for installation or any other cost will be reimbursed with warranty claim. Only one warranty claim is allowed per customer. Brake Overstock neither makes nor implies any other warranty as to suitability for purpose other than expressly
warranted here and is not liable for any form of consequential damage losses or cost. If you order the wrong part, exchanges can be made on unused parts after we receive the returned product. The buyer is responsible for the freight to ship the parts back to us. We will refund the cost of the item except for shipping charges. There is no restocking fee on exchanges.
Actually doesn't sound too bad. Further input?

Yes. They crack. Even the good ones are known for it. Drilled rotors are for track use only. Dimpled rotors are good for the streete.

Also, the ebay rotors are nice and all, but, are made of poor quality metal, and warp very easily. Save your money for a name brand. They look cool and work nicely till the first splash through a puddle after braking. Or even just hard braking (heating up) can cause it.

Pair that with ceramic pads...holy warpage.

Well, I've decided to go the "safe" way and order all of the parts from a local parts store. 4 aftermarket replacement rotors and 2 sets of ceramic brake pads - Total price of $299.99 plus tax for everything.
