Set of Disk Rotors on ebay, wondering if they are any good or are they just cheap ebay scams?

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FORD-EF-EL-X ... 45fc870cf3

Also could anyone advise good quality brake pads??

Sorry if this has been posted before.
If it has can anyone post a link?

Thanks

I agree with uniacidz, go with something like a slotted RDA or DBA and get a set of decent pads something like EBC Greenstuff or Bendix Heavy Duty/Ultimate. No real need for drilled rotors on a street car unless pushing some serious power.

I found these helpful when I chose my RDA Slotted and Green Stuff Pads.....

DBA, RDA and protex are all from the same factory. Protex will set ya back $70 a pair, DBA 150+, RDA bout the same..

Protex are my bread and butter when it comes to doing orders at work, Sell s**t loads of em and they are fine.

I like RDA gold passivated as they wont rust but I am currently running DBA slotted on the front.
