Anyone Use These Brakes?

Has anyone used this brake kit from BlutecTech? The price is really good, which is why I am asking...

I haven't bought that kit, but I buy all my parts from BluntTech. They are great!

Can't see why FCPEuro isn't strictly better. Other than some kind of interpersonal attachment?

I haven't bought from FCPEuro before, usually because they are more expensive, so I can't comment on them.

I buy from BluntTech because of the great customer service. I email them a list of part numbers, they send me an invoice and I pay through PayPal. They are always quick to respond, usually with an hour.

Supporting one of the few remaining r3v related vendors, especially considering prices and service.

FCP still sketches me out with their free replacement thing. I don't see how that's a sustainable business practice.

I'd guess that the percentage of people who actually take advantage of that service regularly is pretty low. Sure they'll take back your spent rotors / used oil, but do you really want to go to the expense of packaging and paying for its transport?
