And of what make would those rotors be?
I want names and numbers (make of the rotors/pads and approx. $US amount, so'* I'm prepared for the shock)
My rotors are warped to hell (I don't know the age of them prior to purchasing the car but I've put 5K miles on it since October and they're now HORRIBLE.)

I'm going to try to wait it out another month or so, as the weather warms and the salt and crap goes away. So, I'm going to have to invest in quality, because I am pretty hard on my brakes.

Oh, absolutely. I guess the point I was trying to make was that even if they _are_ warped, a proper retorquing may at least minimize the problem until you get around to the time and expense of replacing them.
