aren't those EBC ones the same as the BavAuto Sport ones or whatever? Drilled and Slotted? I hear they suck....unless someone says otherwise...

I say otherwise :hi: No they are not the same, not even close. I LOVE my ebc rotors, I had zimmermans (cross drilled) before them. They work great, look great, and sound cool when braking :thumbup:

Rust? My stock rotors will get superficial rust within 24hrs after rain.
That's just a glazing. Its not actual rust thats forming. So no worries bro!


But, on the topic of the thread... go with slotted... cross drilled are only for show purposes so even if you have the sliiiiiightest desire to autoX or track your car, don't go that route. You'll be kicking yourself for wasting money on them. Go with slotted if you must but even those... not THAT much of an improvement for what your'e talkin about. But yeah, slotted or nothing.

Slotted do a good job, and you don't run the risks that some drilled rotors have. You won't notice a difference between the two, so you might as well go with the one that will be the most reliable. That's not to say you won't find quality drilled.

Oh wise guy eh!

Its not even superficial rust actually. Its just a glazing over that I'm pretty sure is caused when water is allowed to settle on the rotor and reacts with the chemical coatings. I've seen some turn green, brown, tan, etc... so it ain't rust.

:flipoff: take that! :p

You can also upgrade your brake fluid to something that has a higher Boiling Point. Im currently using some Motul 600 stuff.
