I put slotted DBAs on mine, not much more than stock discs, drilled are for looks really, unless you do track work, i woulnt bother with them, thats my opinion anyway.

I got a new set of slotted rotors from DRP Direct from Melbourne 1300654690 for $455 delivered.
Kit included:4 new slotted rotors
new brake pads
new wheel studs (front).
All fitted without any probs.They have been on the car for 12 months with no probs & has improved stopping power.Theres no need for cross drilled &
slotted,all theyll do is wear out the pads quicker-more suited to racing.

theres not much to it......just undo the 2 bolts that hold the caliper on...then the caliper will come off ..the hardest part is pushing the piston in...front ones push in....rear ones screw in.....then i think its just one bolt that holds the rotor on....

Slotted, Stock and Slotted/Crossdrilled are ALL vented rotors.

You can get them from Hightek Brakes, or Crescent Motorsports (02)96006229 in syd if your closer.

RDA Slotted are just the same, get that with EBC greenstuff or ultimates and ull be more then happy.

Call hightek or joe @ cms to find out prices and a deal u can get.

g-clamp, open up your brake fluid lid and just use the gclamp and the old pad to push the piston back in..

very easy infact
