I'll contact your Service manager and see if he also recommends this brake upgrade, and if it'* endorsed by GM. I already figured you worked for Covington or Capitol.

It would carry alot of weight if a GM dealership (with Pontiac'* own endorsement recommended this.

Thank you. Please take time and review those websites I sent you with the test on the POWERSTOP as well as the Police interceptor brakes!

you will be glad to see the Police Interceptor SD-1 brakes are Top Notch in the business!

Plus can you say military specs on the rotors your have! Thats my proof!
check the website and review them carefully!

Just to prove that us here at Pontiac do the same tests on our own vehicles! with the same brakes as well as brembos and all others such as RMS.

Also if you truly want the best brakes much better then slotted or crossdrilled, we at Pontiac contacted commandautomotive the producers of Police interceptor brakes which us a process of crygonetics. These are truly the best of the best and are second to none. Trust me on these brakes, we to at Pontiac are now considering these on our own vehicles over slotted or crossdrilled rotors.

I'm interested in this Pontiac upgrading their brakes to these new 'police interceptor' brakes. I never heard this before.

He asked about Pontiac upgrading to these brakes. He didn't ask for the link to be posted again. Any comments?

Emmanuel, we're asking for something very simple. Do your suggestions actually carry Pontiac'* 'endorsement'? Do your suggestions actually carry your Employer'* endorsement? (Covington Pontiac). If so, we want to know. You're using your employment as a form of credibility, but for that credibility to carry any weight, we need to know if what you INFER is actually the case. Can you clarify?

We'd really like to KNOW if Covington Pontiac, or the Pontiac Division of GM knows about this brake testing program, or endorses it.

Thank you.

Yeah, what'* this about Pontiac using police car rotors? If Pontiac was doing it, wouldn't all or most of GM be doing it?

Also, what are better, your cross-drilled Powerstop, or the 'CommandAutomotive" rotors? What would you prefer?

The link you gave doesnt mention drilled rotors on police cars? In fact its not gm making police cars its a side company converting over impalas with the brakes as an option.

The cryo process of brake making does seem interesting?

What I find interesting is that our local PD doesn't use drilled rotors, either. Ram Air, can you give us more details?

Dad, contact Ty for a source on Cryo rotors. He calls them 'frozen rotors'.
