I just went cheap on mine, Amazon. Drilled and slotted (overkill, but looks nice, limited options at the time). Power stop street warrior, was $306 for all 4 corners. They are not the best brakes, but im not planning to stop from 100mph several times in a row. I'm somewhere close to 390whp, and they have brought me to a stop sufficiently.

There's a heavy braking foot, and there's a heavy braking foot at high speeds for sustained periods of time.

Rotors with holes in them are for cooling, usually necessitated by driving at, and braking from, racing speeds. If you have a heavy foot but are doing just normal street driving, then replacing perfectly good stock rotors is a waste of time and money. Learn how to manage your braking more effectively and efficiently, and extend the life of your pads and rotors.

I have stoptech slotted and drilled sport rotors. I prefer slotted but it was cheaper this way. $100 for the front and $60 rear axle pack. Best brake I've owned.

No just normal driving. I work day time now with traffic. I used to work nights and drive windy (curvy) road. Felt like the only car on the road. Now I dont have a chance. For the price it could be centric rotors with stoptech labeling. Same company.

I have Stoptech Cryo Slotted rotors and Sport pads along with their SS lines and Pentosin DOT4LV fluid. I like them. Pads felt better then those Hawk HP+ i had before that..

MArko!
