Well, am starting to need new rotors, and since am going to have to change them anywyas, I was wondering that if I change them, should I go for cross drilled rotors, or cross drilled and slotted, or just stick with the regular oem ones???

if you want to spend extra money on rotors, u might as well get the better pads too, because if u have oem pads and amazing rotors, i dont think it will make a difference

it mostly depends on what your need is....

bottomline, for street driving, inexpensive oems works just fine.

if you'll bring her to the tracks, you'll need to burn some dough.

i replaced mine with ATE powerdiscs... and i think they were worth the money... the cost about the same as OEM rotors, and they look cooler. They also help with heat.

i got cross-drilled and noticed an immediate difference...for the better...w/o bigger calipers...

i do recommend high-quality pads, otherwise the rotors will eat them up
