So I am replacing the pads and rotors on my T5. I was looking at the Powerslot kit from IPD. On a whim, I checked ebay....<p>They have some seemingly nice kits for about $200-$300 cheaper.<p>Does anyone have any experience with these kits? Here's and example - <A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Volvo-S60-01-06-Drill-Slot-F-Rr-Brake-Rotors-Pads_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp4634Q2ec0Q2em14Q2el1262QQhashZitem250406773059QQitemZ250406773059QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...ories</A><p><br>Have to make sure it's the right rotor.............<BR><BR>

Honestly, dont cheap out on brakes.<br>You have a few choices; powerslot, EST, and OEM.<p>And for a DD, you want the slotted ones (or blank). The cross drilled are prone to cracking (especially Ebay brand).

Re: EBAY rotors and pads (Rezin S60T5)

Whats good about the powerslot and EST ones is that they're coated with a material that prevents them from rusting and looking like crap. It might not matter to you, but if your like me you dont want rusty rotors behind your nice wheels <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> .
