Used these on a 2005 PT Cruiser and is fairly difficult to install but has lasted a VERY long time. Realistically I drive quite a bit and will most likely only really need to be replaced every few years. Only complaint is that it is noisy at some times.

    Brakes fit perfectly. No problems with install. Took about 1 hour to install both sides front. Parts were waiting for me at the store when I arrived. And I saved $30 using an online promotion. Can't beat the deal.

                Pads were easy to install. Used brake quiet and there is no noticable noise. Only had them a few weeks, but stop just as good as the previous ceramic pads.

                  Why the pictures shown are different? For example, one picture shows there is a slot in the middle, but the other is not slotted. I wonder if you can post the exact pictures.
