Wow. Other than the dimples and zinc coating, those EBC rotors are almost double the cost of my slotted-only Powerslots, which I have used on other vehicles with good results. Rotors alone would cost more than my 4 rotors and EBC pads. My pads per pair ran about $75 rear and maybe $110 front.

I used EBC Front Brake Pad Set Greenstuff 7000 front, 6000 rear. Very happy with the results now 3-4 months later. No squeal, definitely better braking than my OEM setup, which is probably mostly attributable to the pads.

For me, doing the work myself, the difference in $480 complete to my door vs. $600-700+ (USD) is pretty significant, about enough to pay for another set of rotors or pads.

Nice rotors no doubt, but IMHO Powerslot are more than "good enough" used with high quality pads.
