Are those drilled and slotted rotors that you get off of ebay any good?

If your talking about the oem size rotors that just have been slot and drilled I really think they would NOT provide much of a differance then stock if currently braking is okay with you then i dont see a reason to change rotors

The problem with factory rotor is there size the b14 brakeing power is rather weak
also I wonder how factory pads/calibers would do on a slotted rotor as the idea behind the slot is to trap gas that increases heat to aid in better braking but I'd would think a more capable pad would be needed

depending on how much your willing to spend I would use anything other then the fastbrakes kit 11" rotor and 4 pot cailber

Yes but that is a lot of money. I think the recommendation on the forum here is to go with the NX-2000 ABS calipers and rotors. This is called by the marking on the calipers, AD22VF. Thats what I did and I am very happy with them, see my Sig.
They run about 220 with core charge if you get rebuilt loaded calipers. Search the forum.
Good Luck.....

unless the rotors are cast with holes in them, they will crack. Drilled rotors are a bad idea for street cars period. Less mass = less heat absorption. Stick with a solid rotor. If airflow is a big deal to you, then get one with directional cooling vanes. The rotor is way to small for this car, so as suggested, getting a beefier rotor will make the most difference.
