Wow that's GREAT price, I may buy that next paycheck, the black wouldn't look so bad on my car for a few weeks too since I'd have to hold off on paint till the next pay period

The door is open! I been looking at these lately too. I've seen good reviews and the size is 10.5
NOT BAD! I need new pads soon that sounds like a steal, but my buddy gave me a set of rear slotted rotors from eBay and I hate them because they give off a chirping when braking, sounds exactly like putting a baseball card in your bicycle tire as a kid

With body parts, you get what you pay for. Likely going to spend some $$$ to get it to fit right. I would only buy OEM for an OEM style bumper cover. I mean if you want to be a guinea pig be my guest, I hope it fits ok for you, just dont' expect it to fit like OEM.

The rotors won't have color on them after any length of time. For something that stops your vehicle and may save your life, I wouldn't trust cheap ebay items that could easily have manufacturing defects.

Also, drilled/slotted rotors are a waste of money and, honestly, drilled rotors should be illegal on street cars IMO. You actually LOSE stopping power as you lose surface area for the pads to grab onto not to mention drilled rotors, even the best, have a tendency to develop cracks and can fail. Cheap ebay ones are almost guaranteed to.

I just bought new rotors/pads and good ones too, and they were $160 to my door via rockauto. Raybestos rotors all around, Centric ceramic pads and this is for Cobra/Bullitt/Mach size stuff too which is more expensive than the GT stuff. And I guarandamntee I'll stop better than that cheap ebay crap.

This thread is a perfect example of you get what you pay for. I don't know about you but I don't want cheap ebay crap parts on my 3500lb piece of metal hurtling down the road at 80mph. Just sayin.

You guys are pointing out some good points. Don't get me wrong I know that you get what you pay for. Honestly I'll get the bumper before I get the rotors. I just been checking them out cause of the reviews on them ya know? But I will get the bumper to see and take pics for you guys, doesn't try to hurt, I'll take that lost if it comes to it. I can always resale it
