Before that, I had Bendix CT-3'*, which are still $75 retail and were pretty awesome, but these are beyond anything I've ever used before.
If anyone is looking for pads, stay way clear of Autozone'* Duralast pads. Worst **** I've ever used.
Might be worth noting that including the rotors on my GXP, I've installed 6 pairs of R1 Concepts rotors and everyone I've installed them for has been very impressed. I have a set of their blank zinc coated rotors on the back of my regal because they were cheap as dirt; $45 shipped for the pair!!!
Definitely a high quality rotor for spirited street driving and stop-and-go traffic, but make sure you get a premium or ultra-premium ceramic pad to go with them.
