Cross drilled rotors

I'm looking to order a set of cross drilled rotors, which ones do you guys have/suggest ?

I see a few kits out there on e-bay, should I avoid any of these?

anyone have a set they want to sell?

I've tried the EBC dimpled and slotted discs with red stuff on the front and green stuff on the back on my previous car.

I had to watch the rear view mirror carefully whenever I was braking, they stop that good and fast.

Only problem with EBC red stuff pads, you have to warm up the brakes by jamming on them a bit on cold days as they are basically tracking pads.

Avoid the ones that look cheaper from these classified sites.
Just check out Turner Motorsports and get a set of rotors from there!

get a set of brembo blanks from ebay. they wont warp as fast. the x-drilled ones are prone to cracking.
