    Warped rotors and need some more juice

    During a decent pass I got some aggressive vibes from the front brakes. Felt like warped rotors, only when hot. (Slowing from 95 or so to 45). 2012 coupe AWD with 12000 miles. Suggestions for better rotors ? I put the GMPP on my Avalanche and they have been flawless for over 100 k miles.

    Also could use more power at altitude, I assume I need forced induction. Turbo or S/c ? Anyone in the Denver area who can do the instal and tune?

    What would gmpp have to do with rotors on a fairly new vehicle? If they warped already with so little miles you can argue with the dealer enough for them to replace them under warranty

    From my 3/4 ton experience I say not worth dealer time. Hence my post in performance. With the Chevy they couldn't replicate the problem. (Dealers are on Denver, hard to get them to test drive in te hills ) three trips and they finally resurfaced the rotors. Which warped immediately.

    The slotted cross drilled GMPp do much better than the stock vented on the truck. I assume there are some good options for the caddy.

    Are AWD coupes the smaller 315 mm rotors? Ours is the premium but I don't recall any performance options on the AWD. It has 18" wheels and the taller axle ratio. .

    Why you say GMPP, I think of General Motors Protection Plan, the extended warranty, which was really throwing me off

    Yep. Dura last or Rayestas had the same parts too at slightly less. Anyway what's a good alternative to stock rotors on a AWD coupe?

    There is always the Brembo brake upgrade.

    Link? Or are you referring to the CTS V brakes?
