So does anyone have anything good to report on any aftermarket brake setup? Browsing through this thread, no one seems to be happy with anything on the market.. Been doing a lot of research for new rotors and pads and it seems like everything out there, including stock setup warps very easily. Are any rotors made out of quality materials or is every rotor made out of cheap chinese materials...

I've had good results with RL calipers, Rotora discs and EBC Yellowstuff pads.  It's just about doing your research to see which companies don't use Chinese steel for the rotors.

I've had mixed results with EBC red and yellow stuff pads mixed in with EBC slotted rotors on my setup.  I ended up going back to stock but leaving in the stainless steel brake lines.

Why didnt you like the ebc setup? Ive been looking into ebc rotors and green stuff pads, looks like they're made in the us/uk.

I have the RL calipers and I installed the EBC slotted rotors and green stuff pads almost two years ago.  I just started getting a lot of bad vibrations when braking, causing me to believe they are warped already.  This will be the third set of warped rotors I've had since I installed the RL calipers.  I'm just buying cheap aftermarket rotors from now on since even the expensive ones don't seem to last more than 2-3 years.

I just recently did an upgrade to cr-v calipers with tsx rotors. Basically just oem replacement from advance auto for the pads and rotors. Too soon to tell as far as longevity but based on past experience with the stock accord brakes, I'm already past the point on the new setup where the stock setup would start to give vibrations.

I didn't like the EBC setup because I didn't feel like I got pedal response from them and I was getting weird vibrations all the time but the rotors weren't warped.
