    ^R1 E-Line cross drilled & slotted rotors here as well, have had the same pair on for almost two years and they have been just fantastic, saved me in tight spots too many times, nice price for what it is, good customer service and I will definitely consider them again once it' time for replacements.

    I have the Brakemotive D & S, and they tend to rust.

This is just like wheel hubs, I can count about 4 manufacturers that I know that make a hub for our cars that won't go bad in a month or so.

    true but ebay does have very good deals on rotors, I have a set of cross drilled rotors for my acura tl, and will be getting them for my cts when i need them, not everything on ebay is great, but not everything is bad either.

    Well, in that case yes. The R1 rotors I have, I've actually purchased from R1's ebay store. They had a very nice combo deal on rotors and pads that I went with.

    Just saying you can find dozens of cheap rotors on Ebay that should be avoided, as I mentioned, there's a handful of brands that make rotors for our cars that can be trusted, R1 is one of those tried and proven products for our cars and surely not the only ones I'm not exactly advertising for them, PowerStop, EBC and Stoptech also produce quality products. Also some of these brands use blanks from other brands (Centric for instance is a major supplier of rotor blanks for a lot of the quality producers).
