It depends, I've seen it for more and for less... They work great on the track, and have survived over 2 Chicago winters to boot. I'm on my 3rd set of rotors and have gone through over ten sets of pads (mind you this is close to 50 events on this setup) and still love them. The lead times for replacements could be an issue, but that will only get better and the more people that have these, the better off we will all be. And yes, they seem to be the first I've seen painted.
