Brake Motive rotors and ceramic pads?

Does anyone have any experience with these?

Interesting... I would like to know if you go this route and the results.
I went to the Power Stop website, but they don't list the Boxster as available... but then the website might not be updated.

I was looking at Paragon Products for a brake& rotor set.

You get what you pay for... If it's too good to be true... A fool and his money... There are no free lunches... Leave the gun, take the cannolis...

It's too cheap... there's gotta be a catch... probably quality.

I just installed the Paragon brake kit on all four. Simple install, so far so good. I will hit the track in two weeks and see how the pads hold up when good and hot.

Any feedback/updates on these brakes?

Looking for brake/rotor feedback

Need to pull the trigger soon on new brakes - very curious about the paragon set. Don't need track peformance - but stopping when you want too is good

I'm also curious about the various rotors sold on eBay, like those Brake Motive, the OC brake rotors, Design Rotor Technology, etc....

I've heard some feedback about these other various rotors and most have held up fine and done the job...

At half the cost of oem rotors, they are tempting...

Yes. 1000 miles with one canyon tour and two track days: Buttonwillow 13 and Fontana infield. I worked em good on a warm day at BW with no significant fade on street tires. So far they feel great.
