They're both basically going to be the same dude, they're stock 1-piece replacement rotors. I wouldn't buy drilled (they crack) but whatever floats your boat. Pick whichever one you think looks better. There's nothing to discuss.

Slotted for longer life. Drilled OE style one-piece rotors will crack very easily when exposed to high temps.

Pretty much anything coming out of China these days we should all have a second look at it before making the purchase.

Brakes is not something one would want to overlook or try to save money on.

You might want to take a look at what racingbrake.com offers. They have 2-piece floating rotors which work with the OEM calipers.

I have the upgraded kit with the slotted rotors, SS lines, superblue fluid, and StopTech pads. I was skeptical at first on the rotors, come to find out that they actually sent the ones I wanted. StopTech Powerslots. Love the kit and it even come with new set screws for the rotors and pad sensors.

Harold,

In regards to this, wouldn't a kit like this change the brake bias of the car since only the front would be upgraded?
