I'm in need of new front brakes & rotors and am considering purchasing:
Rotors - http://www.hpashop.com/Zimmermann-Fo...Rotors-E9x.htm
Brakes - http://www.amazon.com/Akebono-EUR918...hu-rd_add_1_dp

A few weeks ago I got a quote for parts + labor, totaling $627.76. The parts in the links above total $262.47, which I have a $50 Amazon gift card going towards the brakes.
Labor should be about 125.. Go to a dif shop

What made you decide to not go OEM? Why akebono?
