Anyone use this in their build? They're the cheapest "branded" oem ones I could find ($14)? Or should I be looking at another brand?

I have never heard anything bad about them. My friend is running them in his 500+ whp gti and they are holding up just fine.

Great thanks. I've never seen someone mention an oem brand other than say its OEM.

Why not go for some much better coated bearings or something? Cheaper is never better.

Yeah, oem is enough.

Oh and cheaper can be better *sometimes [:)]

Only if it's legitimately OEM. My brake pads were labeled OEM too.. The most def are not.
