I used DBA slotteds on my EB,along with braided lines all round,and it stopped brilliantly! Any breed of slotted will do the job.

Im rocking somne RDA slotted on the front of mine. It shudders a fair bit but i think that was because i used the same crappy pads. I am due to replace them so i will be going with some RDA slotted on the rear and probably get the fronts machined just to make sure they all smick again. I will fit up some steel braided brake lines and probably run some QFM HPX pads.

cheers
phil

I'm running RDA slotted front and back on my BA Wagon and they are at least 10 times better than the standard disks which would warp 3 weeks after being machined. The only advice I would give against them is that not all brake pads work well with them. I had Bendix General CT and they were ok but would still get shuddering due to the compound. You need to a harder compound like Bendix Ultimate or the Green or Red Stuff Pads. The Reds are really good. (Using them now!) So yeah the Slotted are well worth it, just get the right pads.

When using the harder type pads,you need to alter your style of braking,otherwise you will just glaze them. You must jam them on hard,so later braking,and they will work wonderfully.

Couldn't tell you, was a while back. Have a look, there may be a few sponsors with a deal going. I'd dare say a SS would look after you better than others as they have their reputation on the site to manage.

I picked up a full set of RDA slotted rotors (front and rear) off ebay for $280 brand new and they are so much better than the stock standard rotors I had on my EL. The car is alot more responsive under braking and pulls up quite alot quicker than it used to and the brakes are quite good in the wet too.

If you're interested here's a link to a full set of 4 suitable for your car for only $260
