Some guy off ebay..

I still need to see what shipping would be (roughly) and if maybe he will give me a deal on two sets (one for you if you want) .

I'm trying for 200USD + shipping but depending on the cost of shipping it might not be worth it.

I honestly forget what pads he sold me, but I think they were PBR pads (I could be wrong).
I believe my total was about a little over $200 for 2 front cross drilled brembo rotors, and PBR pads.

p.s. don't hold me to those prices. I could be way off since I bought them probably a year ago now. It might be less expensive, or even more expensive, you'll need to ask Gino.

Gino should be able to sell your slotted and drilled/slotted as well. I'm going to be ordering some slotted rotors from him next month.

Do they have ONLY slotted as well? I hear that the x-drilled are more prone to warpping due to heat disipation (lack off) since there is less of a cooling surface/metal to absorb the heat

I thought the same thing about warping, but somebody on this board mentioned that rotor warping is a huge falacy, and they were right. I did some research, and it's actually uneven wear on the pads that cause that ''warped'' feeling. Aside from that, I've never had any uneven pad wear using cross drilled rotors, and never experienced brake fade either. I'm guessing it's because the holes scrape the surface of the pad a bit, giving it a nice new finish every time I brake. The only downside to cross drilled rotors I've found is that they can crack around the holes. I have yet to see this for myself, but I believe people when they say it's happened to them. Slotted rotors won't do this, and have similar if not better braking effect as cross drilled rotors do. The only downside to slotted rotors is that they don't ''look'' as ''cool'' :)

I just purchased from Gino (Elite) a M3 front set of Brembo front X drilled and Nickel Cadmium plated with pads for $400 including dustless pads including tax. Best deal even comparing with ebay.
