    If you got 54K on them get the same ones. The HPs are not as good as stock I've heard, but they are good. The stock Ferodos HT1000s are more expensive though.

    If they have 54k on them, I'd change them. Mine had a lip at 50k but they also vibed a little once they got hot. I now have 80k and have the lip again.

    EBC reds. Rotors from whoever, I got mine through Trinet Motorsports. The "whirlwind" rotors in black to be specific.

    All four corners was 230-240 its been a while. Pads are about the same for my EBC yellows, reds are a bit cheaper. Havent had any issues.

    The entire rotor is black? Is it still black or was it just a thin coating?
