Default Power Stop Brake Kit - Anyone have them?

My front rotors are warped, tired of these crappy OEM rotors.

I found this Power Stop Brake Kit for $359, comes with 4 rotors and both sets of pads!

http://www.stage3motorsports.com/pro...tors-Pads.html

Tried searching, but didn't seem to find a lot on this brand. Anyone recommend Power Stop or this kit?

I thought about that kit but then the thought "you get what you pay for" came to mind. I ended up going with EBC slotted and dimpled rotors with EBC red pads via amazon.com Entire setup was around $500 or so. Hawk pads are actually cheaper and are great pads.

How do you like that combination?

The power stop kit is awesome! I am waiting until I need brakes to replace them but I have a few buddies with them and they are really a quality set up. Call AutoAnything at 1-888-944-3229 as that's where my buddies got theirs, they will even beat anyone's price.

Pdonket......better than stock for sure, a nice upgrade. No dust, no issues. I have read mixed reviews on the power stop kit.

Anyone else have experience with the Powerstop kit? I need to replace factory brakes and really don't wanna do an "Autozone" upgrade...

I used powerstop rotors on my previous mustang and never had any issues. They were a nice upgrade from stop. no experience with the pads though

I'm also considering these brakes and Other than the reviews on american muscle I haven't seen anything.

BUT, just letting you know you can find them for slightly less. Rock Auto has them for $280 + shipping but there's a 5% off coupon 6892D28E6E22 normal shipping is 4- 5 days and comes out $36 cheaper than AM even with the 6% AM discount. I live on the West Coast so everything from AM takes 5 days to reach me anyways, so I don't get faster shipping that route anyway.

Autoanything.com has them for $318.39 right now, and although no online coupons work, it says to call in to see if they can apply any discounts.
