Anyone heard of these brake pads?

Hey, found a coupon for some brake pads at discbrakepads.net but never heard of this brand before. Anyone know if lomandi brakes are any good? The ceramics were $56 for the set with 10% off using a coupon I found (brakesale-0930-2010) so I think they are pretty cheap but never heard of them before. Does that sound like an ok deal or should I get something else?

sounds like cheap Chinese knockoffs to me. Get the BMW OEM or a brand name like Hawk, Pagid, EBC

Why shouldn't they be OK? They are only brakes (or is it breaks?)

It is not like it is an important part of your car or has an important function - stopping is way overrated.

Back to the OP - nope, never heard of them - stay away (or you might not stay away from the guy in front of you.)

Well you wouldn't want to have your breaks brake on you, so you should by the best stuff. I mean you only own a expensive German car, why not cheapout on parts.
