    I did my brakes yesterday. I bought the car two months ago and it came with severely warped rotors. The rears were able to be machined but the fronts had to be replaced. The car has 34k miles.

    I bought mine new, had the symptoms of warped rotors after about 10K.

    I pulled the front wheels and setup a dial indicator and found they had alot of runout.
    Marked the locations on the hubs, pulled the rotors and cleaned the hub contact areas and rotor contact areas as well, changed the mounting position to where there was no more runout.
    Been good since with 110K on the dial now.

    Akebono Ceramic pads all around & Brembo OEM replacement rotors. Also throw in a set of SS brake lines (see Tire Rack for all the stuff you need). I was going to try either Powerslot rotors or Brembo / Baer drilled rotors but every car site you see will tell you that slotting / drilled rotors will not have any appreciable benefit for STREET use, will cause increased pad wear and noise, and drilled rotors are prone to cracking which are NOT covered in the manufacturer's return policies! I had the warped rotor problem too & the parts I've used are a cost-effective fix.
