Default good prices for pads & rotors

FYI... doing my front brakes for the first time on my 987 base (2008). Found great prices (best I could find anywhere including Suncoast, Sunset) at

https://www.rmeuropean.com/
$187 shipped for both front rotors, Zimmerman Coat Z rotors.

https://www.delawareporscheparts.com/
$137 shipped for front pads
(They also had a great price for Porsche rotors but elected not to go with them).

Are those aftermarket rotor hats primed?

I did this fun/easy project this winter, while the car was hibernating, on new OE Porsche rotors:

FCP Euro will provide free replacements on rotors and pads.

These rotors are 'coated'. From my research the coating seems to work well to prevent rusting of the hats.

I paint my rotors all the time now. I stopped taping them off. The first use takes care of it.
