Yes, of course I have. They function just fine by making the car stop and looking cool to 16-year-old boys. As far as increased performance goes, I'd say it wasn't measurable by me. Regarding the amount of dust, that depends on the pads and most of the ebay pads that ship with those kits are junk anyways.


Honestly, they are for "looks" only.

I've installed a set on a 7 series BMW for a guy. They weren't warped out of the box and he hasn't had any problems with them yet. (1 year & 10k+ miles ago). I think he said they were under $200 for all four, about half the price of any auto parts store.

the pads would be for the wifes speed 6 which is a daily driver so as far as needing more than stock i really dont need that and the car factory brakes are really good anyways. im just worried about the white wheel not being white anymore

Just buy them. Sometimes they are either identically priced or even cheaper than OEM replacements that you can get at local parts stores. You're going to get brake dust either way.

Centric Premium are a very high quality OEM rotor replacement that won't warp in 30 seconds. All the ebay stuff is cheap chinese garbage.

If you want to get rid of the dust get some ceramic pads. You can get cheap shitty ones from the auto parts store that may or may not squeak, or you can get Hawk Ceramics. I have the Hawks on the lac and am very impressed that they provide the same feel as the stockers with near zero dust. But you get what you pay for.

This. Centric is the parent company for Power Slot and Stop Tech. They also sell stuff under the name SportStop with the stuff coming in StopTech boxes. RockAuto.com and CarPartKings.com both carry Centric products but RockAuto will rape you on shipping, got all the same stuff from CarPartKings for 1/4 the shipping.

I got mine from partsgeek.com for $10 shipping or something retarded like that. 13" 1.5" thick rotors make for some back breaker boxes. UPS man no likey coolnick.

I installed some zinc coated ebay rotors (don't recall the seller's name) on my s13, my dad's is250 and my girlfriend's is300. The is300 has had them on for at least 25k miles and I have had zero issues with them.

2 x re-manned Type R calipers and 2 x mini cooper front rotors with pads
RockAuto wanted $85 for shipping CarPartKings was $20 and their parts were cheaper as well. I was surprised the bottom of the box didn't bust, looked like the tape was going to fail moving them into the house.
