FYI the type of rotor you buy should depend upon your driving......I do 400 miles a week and purchased a set of Powerslot rotors. It is heavy stop 'n go on the highway (75 to 30 in the blink of an eye) and these rotors have held up very very well -- a regular rotor would have warped by now.

The powerslots are very well made but are worth the money given my driving conditions...

If you end up seeing this, thanks bud

Update : I found some cooler looking (and hopefully performing) EBC rotors (slotted and dimpled) at TireRack : Guess which color ?[/url]

For the EBC'* you mean? Yeah, I was a little turned off by the price, but they're cheaper than most Slotted/Drilled/Dimpled ones that i've found for our cars, I think that they look awesome (On a black car), and EBC is a definitely a company to be trusted, with brakes at least.

We'll see how it goes. I'll just be happy to hit the brakes and not feel like I have a racoon with a deathgrip on my front axle
