As a basic rule, I'd avoid amazon (as well as flea-bay) for parts unless you know exactly what you're doing. And based on your post, you don't (please don't take that the wrong way, but really, if you knew, you wouldn't ask, true?)
Best to stick with a good brand from a known vendor.
If you like things simple, buy the Zimmerman Z-coat rotors. The coating obviates the need for any particular bed-in procedure (just don't drive the brakes hard for a few hundred miles) and Zimmerman is an OE supplier for many European car makers.
If you don't mind brake dust, stick with OEM for the pads. They're usually cheaper and are designed to work great wet or dry, hot or cold. If you hate brake dust, Akebono are a popular choice, though I personally prefer Axxis Deluxe Plus.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
