What car is this for? $100 for a 2 pairs of brake pads... seems expensive if it's just for a grocery getter (Can get good ones for $40 or less)

For Genesis Coupe 2.0T. So I think it needs bigger pads than grocery getters!

If you buy pads specified for your car then they are what is for your car. They will be sized for that specific car. To compare them to "grocery getter" pads makes no sense.

Make sure you buy some brake lube if you don't already have it.

That's a lot for no name China stuff. I would avoid and get ATE or Centric pads. Check Partsource or Canadian Tire. Or get from Rockauto.com if you can wait.
You can get Centric/StopTech performance pads for under $40 USD http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/hyun ... e+pad,1684

Here's the China supplier of that NAPA junk.

That is a great price. I almost feel bad for paying $100 whether I bought quality part or not haha. I only did the front this time. I will put an order from RockAuto for the rears. Thank you!

I put these NAPA Premium ceramic on my wives 'grocery-getter' 4 years ago and they have lots of material left. No problems at all.
