    I picked up R1 Concept's premium cross-drilled and slotted rotors (front/rears) AND Hawk HPS Pads all the way around for $440 shipped to me. Nothing but good reviews about R1 on this site and other forums. That was during their black Friday sale, not sure what they are regularly. I think I saved 20%.

    Considering what they are, that's really inexpensive. If you are looking for something less, I would just get the replacements from the nearest auto store.

    Agreed. I plan to get R1 concepts/hps pads when replace my brakes.
