Default New front rotors for GXP

My rotors are almost shot. You can tell that they have been heated beyond normal temp by just looking at them and the wear on them is noticable from the upper and lower edge of the rotor. I dont know if this was a issue prior to me getting the car or It was because of how I drive. Should I look into getting front slotted rotors for the GXP. These are the ones I am looking at.

Good:
Slots extend to the edge of the rotor to properly expel pad gasses and water.

Bad:
Not a known name brand.
Dimples will reduce braking surface area.

Suggestion:
Find name-brand slotted rotors.

Now that I look at other posts it may be due to the calibers sticking. I will check both sides and see the wear on each rotor and see how they are different. Should the rotors be at min. already? with only 29k on it? It doesnt make sense to me my 95 has never gotten new rotors.

I looked at the link you provided for the Brembo'* but they don't say they fit our GXP'*. I know our rotors are bigger than the SSEi had so I wonder if they have some for the GXP??? The first ones you posted do have a lifetime warranty against cracking and warping so they may be worth a try.

87-91 ONLY....
Although if you Call they can get Slotted and drilled front and rear for 179.ish but that is the Eline series and not as high quality as the premium series...
