Don't be tempted to get the drilled and slotted rotors unless you really want to go racin , if you buyin them for daily driving then get the normal rotors cos the others make to much noise for my liking, wish i never got them off E bay , and i have noticed that the tires seem to amplify the noise.
Just my opinion.

EBC RedStuff Brake pads not crazy money. But a big improvement over OEM

Slots eat rotors.

Just go to mjmautohaus.com or ecstuning.com and pic up some stock replacement rotors and some good pads. Ceramics are the best, semi matalics are better than organics.

slots eat rotors You may mean Slots eats brake pads. The Power Slot rotors I have had in different cars have never been a problem. I have used EBC RedStuff ceramic brake pads. Have received many a mile without any problems

Lucky I guess

Yes, pads. As usual multitasking > me.

Slots clean the surface of the pads, meaning they take small amounts off the pad every time you brake thus shortening the life of the pad. So unless you are in the case of glazing up a pad with heat, you dont need them unless you just like to pay more for looks. And yes, I have used powerslots before.

How do you keep up as I have seen you post on many sites?

I have been lucky with this set up.

I work on my computer all day.

The setup is good. Just not as long lasting as plain face rotors and I dont think they stop any shorter.

i hve zimmermann drilled rotors and semi metallics on mine, i ordered them through my local auto parts store, i think they stop a little better, not a big difference but noticeable in wet conditions, i know they eat up pads quicker but tht doesnt bother me, but thts jst my opinion.
hope this helps
