I bought the SVT front brakes, but I plan on doing some better rotors/pads combo...but I was wondering if the brembo slotted rotors actually make a good diff.......I just hear "Brembo" all over saying they are great this and that....just wanted to hear ya'lls opinions

Brembo has a really nice reputation, but their rotors aren't really that much better than other brands. Cross-drilled rotors won't last as long as normal, and they won't really help you unless you're driving on a real track.

yeh...many people buy them thinking they'll get some serious performance real cheap (well in comparison to a brake kit)

yes they'll give u better stopping distance but will warp pretty quick with everyday driving/conditions...i've had them and wont buy them unless they are for a track car

never had a warp problem with my EBC rotors, had them for a year now and they are much better than stock

I run the crap out of the Brembo MAX rotors and they are great. Unfortunately you cannot get them in North America anymore.

Brembo OE replacement rotors are all you need plus a high-quality performance brake pad.

The SVT's brakes are outstanding, even stock...

O yeah I can definitely tell the diff.......but the Brembos look so sexy so I figure if I'm going to change the rotors out, why not do it all nice and right
thanks for the info fellas
