Default Brake Rotors

I've heard a set of OE rotors is like $25 at the car store? Is this true?

Otherwise i'm looking at Brembo'* website and they have P/N 09.7376.10 it says they fit "98->"

Aren't 93 rotors the same as the 98 rotors? Anyone have any idea on a cost for these or a source? They're flat rotors, not drilled or slotted (after some research i'm not after them for the look).

Well autozone isn't the best for OE parts, i've learned that on Club GP.

Thanks a bunch Jason! I think i'll be getting a pair soon. Much more managable then the 170 for some slotted rotors.

Interesting responses. Just a "for what it'* worth:" In the past I have had some bad results using the cheapest rotors. And I believe it mostly had to do with an inferior quality of iron used in the cheaper part. The "brake pulsing" (caused by warped rotors) came back within a few weeks of installing the new ones, and had to have them machined. Again the problem went away for a while longer, but came back again.

I have never had that problem when using the "premium" parts.

By the way, I just checked last week at our local NAPA store, and they offer both grades, the cheaper one, and the better one. I know which one I'll use next time.

Good Luck !!

Advance auto has 2 types of rotors. Both their names,

wearer and Bendix or something, $20 and $60.

Why brembo? Because it'* a proven name, and it'll last longer then the damn engine will If i'm gonna spend $100, i'll make it last.
