It's tempting but are you looking for the best price or a quality product? Aftermarket can be a good option, but keep in mind that you may not be covered with a warranty when you go that route. I'd say go with Genuine Toyota parts...here's a good explanation why

When parts are designed, one part will wear more than the other. Hopefully, the cheaper one will wear more than the more costly one. If brake pads are harder, they might not wear the way they are supposed to causing the rotors to need replacing more often. I'd say, stick with the OEM pads.

Why are you on eBay looking for brake pads. Just go to the parts store and pick a set up, I have ceramic coated on mine and was out the door for around $30. I've always done that and even on my Celica driving HARD they never let me down and it could kill my xB any day.

The pads are all made from the same materials, it's like air intakes, some people want the brand, some people just want the metal tube that connects to an air filter.

If you can afford it, NAPA Adaptive One pads are great. Little to no dusting, good bite on hard braking, quiet and have a good life span. These are available on the fronts, but not the rears. Premium pads will be fine in the rear, otherwise the Akebono pads are available for both front and rear.

1) Advance auto parts (no in stock) cheapest around $20-30. medium quality around $40;
2) NAPA - its called napa safety life pads (something like that) fronts+rears are $55 each in stock;
3) Ziemboat, messaged me and offered decent price for OEM break pads, which i couldn't resist. So, shopping is done :) Thanks Zimeboat!:cheers:

I've never been a fan of off brand brakes. I got some once to save money on my rear Brakes. I did a spirited canyon run and they ended up a smoldering mess. Keep in mind that as much as the fronts do most of the work, having lower friction pads in the rear means even more labor on the fronts.
