aight, dude don't get the drilled rotors-they crack. Second, the stock rotors are very good. Alot of people also recommend staying w/ the stock pads also. The only thing IMO worth changing out is the lines. I have goodridge SS lines and love them.

Okay, I hear alot of people saying that drilled rotors crack....well I have slotted and cross drilled e-bay special rotors and have had them for about 2-3 years...they have not cracked once. I can totally see them cracking if you do ALOT of AutoXing but for everyday street use...they are just fine.

I also recommend you staying with the stock pads, they are very good and last a good while.

As for the lines...I can't for the life of me see how this would make a difference in how the car stops. Unless one of my lines rips or something, i won't be putting them on.

Okay stick to OEM but.......The OEM rotors look ugly and the black paint from the rotors is chipping off. So in other words I need to change rotors as second choice what would any of you guys go with. I'll probably get OEM pads since they are good.

THanks for the feedback

don't do slotted rotors on a stock pad (if you really care about anmythign other than looks)- thats very not necessary.

drilled and slotted will be fine if you jsut drive around town on them - just make sure to inspect them here and there to look for cracking
