The same thing crossed my mind, until I thought: "do I really want what's stopping me running into a wall to be someting I bought on eBay?"

I'd just be afraid of getting couterfeit stuff. A cheap knockoff body part you wouldn't worry about, something as essential as brake pads I would. If you knew the vendor to be genuine you wouldn't mind, but how many eBay vendors can you be sure about? Probably it's 'cos I see the darker side of the web so much in my line of work, I tend not to trust it much.

Ive been using Bendix GTC pads, good bite, affordable and low dust too.
And Remsa High Temp in the rears.

Have used EBC Greenstuff in the past but would use the Bendix over them anyday!

Discs should be able to be skimmed still, so try that first.
