Jim i have to agree with you. I'm not planing on jumping on the RSM bandwagon because that'* all people found for our cars till now. Slots or holes? I don't care. As long as they last longer, and stop quicker i'm good.

I know RSM has a good product, I tried em on Mikes Malibu and they worked like a champ, you could hear the ceramic pads gripping the rotors, it was very impressive.

At the time of my purchase, the $149 each RSMs vs the $100 Rototechs was beyond my budget. Plus I had it on good knowledge that they worked incredibly well on a V8 Lincoln LS of comparable weight. If these ones dont do me well then I will fork out the extra 100 bux CDN and throw on some RSMs.

I remember when I had my brakes installed they mentioned something about some kid putting cross drilled only on his BMW, apparently the kid didnt do his homework and messed up the braking system on his car.

Again another point, listen to advice when its made available, stay in your budget and if you are lucky enough to try out cars with different braking systems then do it.

I recall BadTA posted a bunch of links to brake reviews and the like, but wasnt it all like reviews by the manufacturers? Watch out for bias in those cases.

Another 0.02$ and my pockets feel lighter now :P

Have you ever heard of a little company called Brembo? Yup they make rotors for the Bonne too.

Any one here try them out yet?

$1500 - $3000 isn't expensive or anything... i would rather spend the money to go faster and just use a chute...

a chute would be badass. I like the motorized wing on the MB'* and Crossfires, those are nifty too. Problem with a chute is having to stop and repack it every time you stop
