Any dust buildup on the front wheels? I hate that........I usually am the first one to look on Ebay and see 4 rotors and pads for 189.00 and think: "too good to be true" but I did some more research, and I figured what the heck- the only bad stuff I found on line was on the corvette forums. Since i don't drive my 4.2 TB like a vette, I decided to give them a shot and let the TV community know how it worked out.
I drive about 40,000 miles a year. My original brakes just gave up the ghost at 66,000 miles.
Pads/Rotors: All the rotors and pads come from Powerstop, and are zinc coated. They were all true and looked great out of the box. The kit includes the Powerstop Evolution Ceramic pads. Everything fit perfectly and went together as should. I broke them in per the Instructions included in the box.
Initial impression :thumbsup: ( 66,687Miles):
I'm impressed. The initial bite of the brakes is much much better, and you need less brake to haul the TB down from speed. I also did a few high seed stops and the they have no fade. It seems that the pad material is definitely well-matched to the rotors.
Can't make any observations on brake dust yet, it's been snowing/slushy mess since I installed them.
Ill keep updating as the miles add up- So far, it seems i got my money's worth and then some.
