The dealer pads and rotors are rediculously priced but in the long run ....might be worth the effort. My orig saab brakes performed nicely beyond 60k miles. The replacement pads and rotors [ Euro Rotor ] were totally destroyed by 10K miles. Now Im trying Brembo but it is too soon to pass judgement.
