Brembo: Is this a good deal?

I've been scouring the internet for brakes and rotors for my car. Just wanted to check and see if you guys thought this "package" off eBay was a good deal for Brembo brakes and rotors? My budget is always tight and I always like to keep any extra pennies I can, but I'm tired of looking for the "best" deal I can possibly find and ready to bite the bullet and just make a purchase.

Just got an email from the eBay seller saying that his listing is for a 2-pin rear pad caliper (their picture is clearly for a 1-pin). He's going to look and see if he can find the 1-pins for me...it will be interesting to see what the price difference will be.

Trouble is buying disc on line is if they warp .
You have to send back at your expense .
And then prooving there warped and will they send new ones out etc etc
And who pays for the extra postage .......

And are they still on line selling still ?

Buy from a shop thats established i say .

I know buying offline is a risk. But then again I have been known to be quite the (reasonable) risk taker

I received a shipment notification on these parts without hearing back from the seller that he had found the correct ones. So I shot him a quick message to find out what was going on. Here's his reply (I get tickled that he always responds "Dear Sir" even though I've signed my messages "Ashley" haha!:




Dear Sir,

After a series of thorough checks we determined that these parts should fityour vehicle too as they are, so we proceeded with shipping the items as you'veordered them.



If problems arise (they shouldn't) do not hesitate tocontact us and we'll cover everything includingreturn shipping, eventual exchanges etc.



Best regards,

Otis

If they get here and don't fit, and they keep to their word and cover the return, etc. then I'd say this seller is alright in my book.
