I think the quality is very similar, i'd go with the RDA's for the price unless you get the DBA's cheap!

not sure on rda's but my dba's are unreal esp when you get good pads with them. dba slotted are like $99 from site sponsor high tech brakes. worth every cent.

RDA's have black hubs, i put a set on mine last w/end, $290 for a full set of slotted rotors, good price. I recommend them, pulls up a damn lot quicker now. Just make sure you get some good quality, performance orientated pads to go with it.

dba made in australia and have kangaroo paw colling fins, much better if you do track work or heavy braking. more $$.

rda imported, basically old design of dba's. single solid cooling fins. cheaper.

Dont go to Brakes Plus they quoted me $110 each for front rotors ($600 to replace all 4 :shock:) i got the exact same RDA rotors for $55each off cam at Hightek Brakes, speak to them for good prices.

the stuff you got from ebay was the cheap and in my opinion quite nasty chinese made gear, protek is the brand i think.
won't do for anything other than normal everyday driving.
