    I got some zinc coated cross drilled and slotted rotors of Ebay with stock pads. Been running them for about 4 years with no problems. Talk about a huge difference in stopping power.

    I bought a set of drilled rotors off E-bay, I think it was some Canadian company. No problems and its been 1 yr since I've done it. The pads, I just bought what normal ones at Autozone... once again no issues.

    If you dont want to spend the money for crossdrilled rotors, I did Wagner rotors and performance friction pads. I have drove the car hard, they stop excellent, and had to lock up the front wheels more than a handful of times due to idiots, and no warpage at all. Been on the car a year.

    Have your stock rotors machined. You'll be fine, has worked very well for me on the auto X

    I did the ebay slotted and drilled rotors from R1 Concepts. I think it was like $180 shipped for all 4 rotors and I run Bendix pads. Couldn't resist trying them at that price. No issues with them so far.

    I bet shipping would be another $50 on top of that though. Either way it looks like someone has picked up on the ebay rotor deal and started carrying them. When I did mine I looked at it as a gamble but when the ebay rotors are $300 less than baer's it made sense to give them a try. Glad I did.
