Default Any experience with NAPA brand parts?

As the title states. I'm going to be rebuilding the brake system on my E30 (old BMW) as preventative maintenance, and was planning to buy the rebuild kit for about 30 bucks/wheel...until a friend showed me that NAPA carries all-new calipers for about 50/wheel. So...assuming it's a good product, it would seem to make more sense to just start with all new calipers than to rebuild the stock units (which have about 195K miles on 'em).

Anybody use the NAPA brand stuff? Any good?

I have never had a problem with napa, I have used pads a few times. I have some on my car right now actually.

Used their pads for a while and they were very quiet but not much bite. Prolly better brake stuff out there to buy. Oh, and multiple rear axles from NAPA.
