Just did my brakes all around with the Tischer special. The OEM brakes are really good. If you don't track your car, you don't need anything else imo.

I had them installed and the brakes work great with no noises or squeeks.

Just bought the Ebay kit. Delivers next week and I'll probably put them on next weekend. I'll give an update the day after install, and another about 6 months after.

Put them on this weekend. No problem with the parts or install, everything fit fine and is working well. Braking is 90-95% as good as the stock pads.

If I remember I'll update in a few months. So far so good.

Back with an update:

Better than I expected. Zero issues. TINY amounts of brake dust. Braking power is awesome.

If you're not racing your car, the Ebay kit should be more than enough for our needs.

Pads and sensors:

So out the door price of $423. $233 for all 4 rotors and $190 for pads/sensors/fluid from Turner.

So I've put 15k miles on this setup and have been very pleased. I still recommend it.

Low noise, low dust, immediate stopping power and ZERO brake rotor rust. No track time, just daily driving.

Had r1 concepts kits on three cars and had them installed on my friends' cars many times. Quality product.
