Did you buy the rotors on ebay and pick them up at the warehouse?

I went just the other day to their warehouse to pick up some drilled rotors I purchased on ebay. This was for a different car. I found their prices on ebay much cheaper than their own website however, all options included free shipping in my case. I just chose not to wait.

How is the quality of this brake system- rotor and pads. Stopping feel and brake dust.

Their rotors are legit and fine quality. Ive been driving my DD with new cross drilled rotors all week and brake feel is greatly improved as expected since they are new rotors after all. I placed another order with them this week for a set of blanks and ceramic pads to go on one of my parents cars. Im installing them this weekend and flushing the brake lines with ATE blue brake fluid.
