Drilled front slotted rear BBK?

Would look pretty funky, but I have slotted aero rotors now.

I wanted drilled, but got a good deal on these. I found a good deal on just the fronts (drilled rotors).

Wondering if it would look way to weird... Honestly, I don't really care, but I don't think any has done this either. Both on separate ends.

I'd never buy anything but slotted. Drilled rotors have a tendency to crack between the holes. It's a really common problem for people whose cars see track use but it's not all that rare for it to happen on cars that don't get tracked either.
To each their own though. I doubt it would be that easy to notice slotted fronts with drilled rears as long as the rotors aren't absolutely massive.

I appreciate your input. I would only hope to track maybe once or twice next season. I may just keep the slotted.
Thanks,
