    Ditch the OEM rotors and get a set of aftermarket. They have been cut once, and the money you spend cutting them again can be used for new ones.
    Every time you cut them, it makes them more prone to warpage.

    Plenty of cheap choices out there.

    are they stock rotors? stock rotors suck. mine warped, had them turned, warped again. i upgraded to powerslot rotors and decent pads. cost me about 500 bucks, but have put 45000 miles on them with hard braking and they are great. it's about time for me to get new pads though, the rotors are still fine.
