Default Slotted Brake Rotors

I found some slotted brake rotors for an audi 80q a while ago, and opted not to get them at the time. Instead getting a cheapo pair from NAPA that have already started to brake pulse 4 months later. Anyways I didnt save the web address and was wondering if anyone knew of a place to get 108-4 lug slotted rotors. Im not looking for cross drilled, just slotted.

Thanks

Ok 4 minutes after posting this i found some decent ones on Audiquattroparts.com But before i buy them I wanted to know if anyone has used slotted rottors and if they noticed any difference in heavy breaking.
Here are the rotors and pads, seems like a decent deal at 174. But maybe i would be better off with just getting some new oe rotors and a good set of pads....

Very interesting design. Not sure how well designed they are for venting gasses, though.

Why do you want/need new brakes? Are you due some new pads because of wear or are you planning on tracking the car or are you just looking to spruce up the car's looks?

My pads arent really in need of replacement, they just produce a lot of brake dust. As for the rotors, I get crazy brake pulse all the time, but Im going to turn them when i change my CV boots see if it helps, and the reason I was looking into slotted rotors was because im going to start Auto-xing once my car is up to par and thought it may help. At the same time though Im a poor college student with not much cash, so if it means spending a lot of cash than its not something I can do.
