Could anyone perhaps advise if these discs would be any good. As you are aware, Mk2 TTRS discs are quite pricey, and these are around half price, but not drilled.

My question is, If I have good pads and fluid, would these discs be OK, or would you only stick with OEM?


Thanks in advance

Your Ebay auction link provides zero useful information.

Who is the manufacturer and where are they made?
High carbon steel or ?
Any corrosion protection applied, if so what type?
Runout measurement?
Directional cooling vanes?
Weight?

There is a reason they are half the price of OE rotors. My money says cheap Chinese knockoffs.
Personally, I wouldn't buy anything like a rotor off of eBay (even if advertised as a quality brand) since eBay is ideal for selling counterfeit car parts and I'd avoid Chinese parts like the plague.

Wouldn't go cheap / trust my life to something as important as brakes. You own a quality automobile, don't downgrade it with inferior parts.

Wouldn't touch those with a 10ft barge poll

Additionally, not sure where you've tried to price up OE discs, but with those being £250 PER disc, at £500 they aren't far off OE cost at all, let alone close to half the price.
RS stock discs are known to be poor, it's well documented - I won't go over the details

You'd be much better off sourcing a set of 2 piece discs
Cheaper option of those - Mtec: Better option - Floating reyland:

Not me selling these, but there’s a listing in the marketplace which might be of interest to you…..
