Brake pads and rotors

Anyone purchase from www.etopline.net before? A pair of Zimmermann front rotors for $179 plus $30 shipping. Pagid pads for $94/pair? Is this about right?

Also, does Zimmermann make the original rotors for Porsche? How does the Pagid pads compare to original pads?

I did a search at ********************************az and it turned up $119 each ($238/pair) for the front rotor and $119 for the front pads.

BTW, while it is true that zimmerman is/was an OE supplier to Porsche, I have seen those zimmerman rotors crack much more easily at the track, suggesting they are of a different build quality. YMMV, but I will always use Porsche rotors.

Speaking from experience, stay away from the drilled Zimm's!!!

Mine lasted 13k miles with Pagid "Blue" pads, needles to say, I was pissed!

Pagid makes an excellent pad and the "Blue" is a good choice for passive agressive street driving.
