Hi Guys/ please advise me on the best value front rotors and pads for my 2007 Aurion. There is a  shudder through the steering wheel at heavy breaking so I know the rotors are slightly warped, I want a rotors that will last at least another 100,000K, i have seen some for sale at $115 per pair, at Autoparts direct, but they could be rubbish and last only 10,000K, I am 62 years and do not drive fast, lol my hooning days are over. I also do not want to spend a mint as the car is only worth $7000. Or do I just get the old ones machined. This car has done 120,000K, original rotors I think. Thanks for your help, there is so much BS out there.

I have done my research on brake rotors and pads sometime ago. Personally, I have had good usage with Bendix Brake Pads although I have come across a few ërrors"in their catalogue. Bendix have issued a Technical bulletin about the Aurion brake pads and the slight variation between DB2243 and DB1474.

Rather than take a risk with China "bargains", I prefer to stay with the proven Australian brake rotor manufacturers. Forgotten whether I used DBA or RDA rotors on my 1998 Toyota Camry

I just happen to have the following in my eBay watchlist for ready reference purposes.

Jon, 

better to research the maufacturers' website Bendix, DBA and RDA etc.

Personally, I have used the Bendix Ultimate pads which are ideal for highway driving. Probably consider the Bendix General pads next time which appear to be a better choice for city driving. 

My thoughts are to also select a better quality rotor so it will be less susceptible to warping or cracking. More likely to select a slotted rotor and dimpled rather than drilled.

Even if you are not hooning or driving hard, there may be the occasion where you need to do an extreme braking manoeuvre for life preservation reasons. About 30 years ago, I had to do a hard emergency brake from 110km to stationary to avoid a head on collision with an overtaking vehicle. Still remember the blue tyre smoke, giving that female motorist the filthiest drop dead stare and seeing the startled look on her face realising she had made a near fatal driving mistake.

Excellent experience why I do NOT compromise on brake pads and rotors.

Remembered previously reading about the Kangaroo Paw in brake rotor design. If I needed to replace brake rotors today, then I would be seriously considering the following eBay listing then deciding which Bendix brake pad set, General CT or Ultimate.
