I have a dilemma..... If I buy drilled brake rotors, pads, and my two front calipers for my 88 formula from the fiero store it'll cost me a little over 500 bucks. I love the fiero store and they are an extremely valueable tool when you need them. But I did some searching and found the calipers for $50 less per caliper at advance and a set of drilled AND SLOTTED gold cadium rotors on ebay for $200.
Point is I can get all my parts for $260 elsewhere so why should I pay over $500 to the fiero store for basically the same products. I have a certain level of loyalty to the fiero store because I believe in supporting small business all the way. However, it's very hard to justify it on such large purchase when I can save 50% by buying elsewhere.

What do you all think I should do here? Loyalty only goes so far on a fiero owners budget.

Dude if you can get them somewhere else for half the price i would totally do it. Sure loyalty to a small business is great but when your on a budget and can get the same thing cheaper its all ways a smart idea. besides with the money you save maybe you can buy something else for your fiero? think of the possibilities lol

Maybe some nice stainless lines and hoses to compliment the new parts?

Ask the Fiero Store to match the price you found elsewhere.

Sometimes they are way off base on price, and this is probably one of those times. I am not sure i would trust eBay parts for a car unless it was from a parts car or a known good dealer. Too many faux parts out there.

Doesnt hurt to ask but I'm thinking their prices are not negotiable.
