    Hello TW, first post but long time reader and user of all the great info here.

    I am curious if anyone, especially the OC guys have any experience using Eco brakes (www.ecobrakes.com) located in Garden Grove.
    They are advertising on Craigslist new front slotted and drilled rotors/pads and install for $160.

    I'm due for pads and getting some vibration when braking (so likely warped rotors)

    Your experience/ reviews are much appreciated.

    I say you go OEM pads and brembo blank rotors (if you cant turn the ones you have on right now).

    Do it in your garage to really save some $$

    Thank you, I know that there are other options out there but I am curious if anyone has tried them. And for this price, it's worth having someone else do the labor.
