    Default Ebay brake kit

    HI GUYS.

    has anyone purchased this kit:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3901628989...84.m1436.l2649

    if you have was it any good.

    the seller has sold over 500 of these kits and had no bad feedback on them that i can find. but it would be nice to get an opinion from someone who has brought them.

    cheers guys.

    No I haven't bought these but I have bought many sets of aftermarket discs and pads over the years - never had a problem. The only thing that you may find is they don't last as long as OE stuff.

    Half the trouble with feedback on ebay (especially with items like this) is that the feedback is left early on before the real quality of the product reveals itself.

    These may well be made of soft cheese for all you know. You'll leave your feedback shortly after they arrive, saying prompt delivery, top man, would buy again, etc. But in 5000 miles when they're worn out it's then too late to then leave negative feedback.

    You pays your money and takes your chance.

    Not for one moment saying they're rubbish, but they're often cheap for a reason.

    Default ebay brakes

    They will be fit for purpose so if it's to get your car through a mot to sell on or if your not a racing driver on the roads they will be fine but if your an heavy footed kinda a guy who's spent a load of dosh on engine performance then they will be rubbish for you and you will soon be rapped round a lamp post somewhere!!!.
