I just replaced my front brake rotors and my friend(a mechanic) said the front brake rotors were suppose to be vented. The stock ones that came off were vented but the rotors the place gave me(vaca valley auto parts) gave me solid rotors. I also went to Kragen to see if they had the same ones and he pulls out ones that are solid and says they are for the front. My question is are the front brake rotors suppose to be vented?

ahhhhhh i disagree. i just bought 2 rotors for my GA16DE sentra for $19 each (yes its a b14......they use the exact same brakes though) and they are vented in the middle. they look great too.

i don't know who's pulling your leg, but the stock brakes on a b13 (SR or GA) are not vented, cross-drilled, fudge-dipped, crinkled-wrapped or anything else. i'd say that someone had put the vented rotors on the car before you got it. solid is OEM.
