Yea, the car is 9 years old now...might as well upgrade it. If you get it resurfaced now and they warp again, you're probably going to have to replace them anyway. They can only resurface so many times before there's not enough rotor material left. There's a threshold that they won't go past.

I always have two sets of rotors, one to resurface one to replace. but than again I can't get rotors my size right away. They have to be custom cut.

not all warped rotors can be resurfaced for use anyways.

dont be cheap when it comes to braking system.

I'm also thinking about getting new rotors. The EBC dimpled/slotted ones I got aren't really that great...unless it's the greenstuff pads I'm using. Braking isn't really smooth unless I'm braking pretty hard.

I wanna get some PowerSlot Plus rotors. Maybe when I get my GS calipers. Kiet, what calipers are you running with the custom rotors? I'm assuming they're bigger? Did you just make yourself a bracket to more the caliper out?

A. either buy aftermarket one which cost like 50/pc (Every new set of pad = new rotor)

b. Keep using dealer stuff, and keep resurfing it

doesn't really matter. unless you have floating rotors that are less prone to warping, aftermarket or factory will warp given the right occasion. how long had you had the rotors before it warped? if it's been a while, then save the money and resurface it. one advantage i like about factory is that the center hub portion is painted and doesn't really rust unlike the brembo blanks. but yes, you can only resurface so many times. if the warping is bad, buy new ones. if it's a minor shimmy, resurface.

Resurfacing for $50 for two?!
I would shop around more. My nearby brake shop does $8 resurfacing per rotor.

+1 what syclone said. I'm still on my oem rotors going 9 years using cheap pads and brembo pads with some autocross and still no problems.

i assume you are using the cheap pads in the rear and the brembos in the front.


are your front rotors also OE also if you are using the brembo pads in the front how have the pads not are through the rotor yet. i have brembo pads in the font and it seems as if the pads are eating the rotor.

Yeah, cheap pads rear. Brembos front. OE rotors all around.
The brembos have been on for ~15k miles.

The only hard braking I do is on the track. On the street I coast and lightly brake a ton. That should be a huge factor.

Where do you get your OEM rotors? Mine aren't painted and very rusted. Can't wait for spring to upgrade.
