i have dba slotted, as most do of my friends, im sick of fitting the things, ah well doesnt take long to do now :)

bda's and lucus pads work very well, but im cleaning the wheels every 2 days, but that doesnt bother me at all.

still the best money ive ever spent on my car.

how does the rotors make the car stop better? are they bigger then stock rotors? or do they come with calipers as well.

The slots are surpose to let "gas build up" between the pad and the rotor disipate better..as well as when the pad passes over the slot it keeps the pad cleaner.. The drill holes are there i think to aid better heat disipation..
