ebay brake rotors

ebay brake rotors cross drilled go for about $100 - $150 for a pair while locally crossed drilled slotted rotors got for $150 a piece.

are ebay rotors worth buying? any possible problems?

Like everything on eBay, buyer beware. I know plenty of people running eBay rotors who haven't had a single problem, but I'm sure there are others who have.

On the same token, unless you're buying 'em simply for looks, cross-drilled and slotted rotors serve little purpose on modern braking systems.

Avoid cross drilled rotors. Why would you want less braking surface area? Thats silly. Plus, they are notorious for cracking, which is not exactly something you want to happen.

Porsche uses Brembo rotors, which are properly treated. If you find you are paying 400-500+ for your cross drilled rotors, they are probably true Brembo rotors. $60 is not going to get you treated cross drilled rotors, $60 will get you cracked rotors.

ebay brake rotors? like one of those shady ones?

do not buy them, most likely it will be less reliable than your OEM brakes.

I'm not sure if some rotors are more prone to warping or it could be people just putting up the their ebrakes after hard runs or their driving styles.

I've used generic rotors for 5 years + no problems here. They are so cheap that even if they do warp you can just buy another one and it'll still be cheaper than any name brand version.Thats just my experience anyways.
