Yuck, Silverline...Their pads are **** dude.

Interesting that you ask who makes the Repco rotors. Still a fairly new line of stock, and even I haven't looked into it yet...

I shall suss it out when I'm next at work for you.

im getting them for my vy,i know the manager at the repco store im getting them from,he reckons they aren't bad for standard rotors,the pads he reckons will wear out quick though... but you couldnt by rotors seperatly cheaper than that anyway.

Would it be RDA rotors, a few of the sellers on Ebay seem to sell these relatively cheaply compared to some other brands

Not true, GSLRallySport sell RDA rotors for $49 each. Sure you would have to add about $15 for postage, but at least I know what I'm paying for.

hmm,technically still works out dearer though doesnt it, as i said,i know the manager pretty well as hes a mate and i can tell you now, if he thinks they are crap,he'll tell me straight up, ie, he reckons the pads that come with them arent very good...

i personally found rda to be the best cheap /effective rotors for wear long term

but as for pads i use genuine especially with slotted rotors as they always seem to get noisy if a poor compund brake pad
(and yes i always tried the fix it things, chamfer pads glue backing plate blah blah blah i now only use genuine REAR pads and MID RANGE price repco pads e.g. bendix)

like i said you will get alot of dif opinions on brakes this is mine...

i think repco rotors are dba????

Well if the rotors are just rebranded RDA than thats very good value. Maybe buy this deal and sell the pads and fluid on eBay, I'm sure someone will pay $10-$15 for them.

I currently have RDA slotted and QFM A1RM, and the braking is fantastic.
