Hmm you can't get them until the 25th.
They look really good, way cleaner design than Turner Motorsport rotors...just a far as looks
I am looking at getting the stoptechs, Turner Motorsport's and ECS rotors...all around the same price.

Personally I love the way they preform. I run our slotted version on my E36 M3 track car paired with EBC Orangestuff (this is a track pad not a street pad), the pads are very hard on all rotors, but our slotted ones held up great last season!

Feel free to shoot me a PM if you need help picking out a pad.rotor combo for your car.

Different about the pads? I'll get as technical as I can beyond they are my preferred track pad after bouncing from brand to brand and pad to pad for several years. EBC Orangestuff are a semi metallic pad. They have an initial coefficiency of 0.50Mu and never drop below 0.40Mu, this makes for very very stable braking that just doesn't fade on the track once they are warmed up, this also means a glowing read rotor is still going to be slowed by them (unlike a street pad that is going to loose grip on the smoking hot rotor). Side effect of the pad compound is it is very un-street friendly, they are loud (even louder squealing when cold) and don't stop well when cold (side effect of being extraordinarily hard to fade). HERE is link to EBCs info page on the OrangeStuffs.

Note I'd never run these type pads on a street car, they are sold for track purposes only.
