M3 needs new Rotors crossdrilled vs sloted?

I took my M3 to the dealer the other day and they say i need new rotors and pads all around. Was thinking to go for Zimmerman Cross-Drilled rotorshttp://www.corner73.com/product_info...roducts_id=233 but a friend said to go for slotted instead any one know whats better? dealer stock replacements are a rip off

slotted FTW, iv heard of far too many problems with crossdrilled cracking or fracturing.

go with regular rotors, or slotted at most. I have a set of Brembo cross-drilled rotors on the rear of my car, and they cracked after only 2 lapping days. I'm going with regular blank (although vented) OE rotors as replacements...

I ran both Brembo and Zimmerman and no problems here.
Used on the street as well as the track

I've havn't seen any problems with the zimmerman x-drilled rotor plus im like 99% sure they have a 2 year limmeted warrenty on them wich would cover cracking/warping.

I've had zimmerman xdrilled on my E34, and they warped really quickly. I don't like those rotors at all.

Other members had similar experiences.
