Hello,

I too am using the NAPA ceramic pads and their rotors (I replaced all four and did pads for $300 or so)

Power Slots are very good and so are the Hawk Pads I went the Napa route because their stuff has always worked well for me and they had the stuff in stock.

Are they WAY cheaper? What do you think or have heard the difference in longevity between the powerslot/ hawk combo and the napa ceramic/napa rotors would be?

I believe the Pads are pretty close in price yet the rotors are 50% or better more expensive but are a much higher grade metal and are slotted for cooling it really just depends on your needs and how quick you need them to decide between the two.
