Default Need new rotors

Hey guys im in need of some new rotors. What would you guys recommend? Im on a budget so I don't want anything too fancy. What are some good brands and should I go with slotted, drilled, or both? Any advice would be nice as I havent checked any of this stuff out yet.

Most UK Supra owners use ADL Bluepint as a direct replacement for the stock discs which they order from their local motor factors. The US seems to have more choice for Toyota parts stores, you’ll probably be able to obtain high performance discs for what we would pay for stock discs.

Well I finally have some money saved up for some new rotots. Are power slot rotors any good? Or any brands on here?? I don't want to go for stock replacement, I wan't a bit of an upgrade. Don't know much about brakes so I would appreciate any help.

Also what kind of pads would you guys recommend??

Where did you find the brembos? I looked on their site and I can't find any for our car.

EBAY! they sell all kinds of brakes/rotors/pads whatever you want. What i did was get 150$ ceramic brake pad sets from pepboys, And im gona get the ebay rotor/pad combo and just return the pepboys boxes with the brand new ebay pads in em. They just open it and look at it. Im sure as long as they see brake pads in there theyll be good. haha.

For some reason I don't really like E-bay... But I think im starting to warm up to it a bit. What do you think of this set? It seems like a very good deal to me.. $300 for front and rear rotors + pads. Front and rear rotors are different brands, though. Does that make any difference?

$300 is a good chunk less than what I was expecting to pay, so if this is a good deal please let me know so I can snatch em up.

So is there anything wrong with a brembo/bradi combo?? The auction has only 16 hours left so I would appreciate a fast response!

It's 4:00 AM and I need some sleep... I also have work tommorow... so now is the only time I have buy this deal.

Keep the rotors, toss or sell the pads. Or do what i did nad get good real pads and then return the ebay pads in the boxes.
