Bought Nissan OE parts for cost+15% and I had one of their price books and microfiche. Looked them up myself to make sure I got the right part. Once bought 11% of their gross sales, including their own service department. We towed junked 300s there, they replaced the injectors, we pulled the injectors out and saved them. NHSTA recall they replaced every set on all the engines.

If we had replaced OUR customers injectors and charged them, we got compensation from Nissan and refunded the customers money, they got them for free same as if they had taken it to the dealership, when the recall came out we had a lot of happy customers with free injectors. (all sohc 30 v6s)

Cheap pads have always lasted the rest of the life of my vehicle, and still had the ability to lock up the wheels if pressed.

I suppose I wouldn't know, as I have yet to use them
