$225 per axle for slotted and dimpled rotors plus standard semi metallic pads. For $40 more per axle you can upgrade to premium semi metallic pads. Standard ceramic are $45 per axle Premium Ceramic are $62 per axle.

Free shipping & "lifetime warranty" on rotors

http://brakeperformance.com/brake-rotors/Premium-Dimpled-and-Slotted-Brake-Rotors.php

Comes with silver or black zinc coating on the rotors to reduce rusting.

Lots of aftermarket for them since they're the same as 1st gen CTS-V's. Previous owner of my car had drilled/slotted, I put on slotted at my last brake job. Hawk Pads and I want to say it was a dba rotor, but I could be wrong.

You can try Cquence. I had them on my standard STS. They will make any brake rotor you want really. I haven't hit them up about the V yet. Waiting until I need brakes to upgrade.

Cquence (http://www.cquence.net/cquence-performance-absolute-brake-disc-rotor-rear-cadillac-sts-2006-j56-brakes-html.html) is pretty competitive with their pricing...I've been looking for a dimpled and/or slotted rotor too. Might pick up a set of these...Nice Find.:thumbsup:

The time has come to replace my rotors...
I was seconds away from ordering the C-Quence rotors when I checked out Autoanything's site. I keep getting discount codes since I ordered the exhaust from them. I found a set of Bear rotors at the same price and went with them (for the name mostly). I'm curious to see if they perform any better or if the build quality is any better. Anyone here use the Bear rotors?
I'll post an update once installed.

I'll get some slotted for sure next time around. I have seen far too many "drilled" rotors crack from my GTO days. Even the good Baer ones still cracked. Pass.

Still waiting for my Bear rotors to ship :banghead:
I received 2 emails stating the shipment would be delayed. Should ship next week.
In the mean time, I just ordered a set of powerstop rotors for the rear. I guess we'll see what shows up first :bonkers:

I have EBC dimpled and slotted. Had them since I have had the car. Put about 60K miles on them and never had an issue.

I can say I still like the hps, and r1 rotors on mine ive put about 2k on them and they still perform great http://i800.photobucket.com/albums/yy281/cadi509/STS%20V/43BAB078-EC8D-41B0-BED7-F53138B9CEF4.jpg

I got slotted rotors and Hawk HPS pads at TireRack.com Clint @ x-4675 helped me out. The pads are quiet with very little dust.

Need pads and rotors as my oems squeal like crazy. Thinking EBC USR slotted rotors and redstuff pads. Anybody have any experience with stoptech? Just curious.

Brakenetic slot + drilled and hawk pads work great, smooth and silent. By the way, dimpled rotors won't cool any more than standard and don't do anything at all really.... Drilled fights pushback and pulls air through them channeling into the veins of the rotor which keeps them cool longer and brings temps down faster fighting fade. The slots only clean the pad of debris like rocks and dust etc. I've got over 20k on mine and they still look brand new without a hint of dust.

I have always heard that drilled rotors will crack at the edges of the drilled holes. If you are wanting drilled rotors they should be cast into them in the manufacturing process. I've heard about cryo. treatment but not real familiar with it.

I got mine (non-V) from BrakePerformance.com ... its a USA company that has the holes as part of the casting with chamfered edges too.
I have 'drilled' and slotted with the black zinc coating on it which keeps the non brake surface clear of surface rusting.

I could see smaller diameter rotors cracking around the surface ports but these is a lot of metal that would need to give in order for that to happen. I could also see cheap castings do it as well. This isn't exactly the kind of car you want to go cheap with. I've hit my brakes hard at 160 which was enough to make the front right tire smoke but she stayed straight and true. Dam crazy drivers in Mexico haha. But the brakes didn't crack, didn't warp, didn't even create dust. They still have the cross hatch in them from the factory after 20k miles actually.

When you say "drilled" do you mean dimpled, or do you mean it was cast with the holes and not actually "drilled"?

How do you like the Brakeperformance brakes? I'm starting my research into doing all four corners with rotors & pads, and I won't be tracking the car, so I'm debating the merits of dimpled vs. actually drilled (cast, whatever).

I thought I read they were holes that were part of the casting ... can't seem to find that again.
Oh well, I have drilled and slotted, they also offer dimpled as well and claim that dimpled handle higher stress better than drilled does and recommend them for SUVs/Trucks.
They fit perfectly and perform well for me so I think they were a good deal.

Basically for the V they are $307 for 4 zinc coated slotted and drilled rotors + pads w/ free shipping
or $427 for 4 zinc coated slotted and dimpled rotors w/ free semi-metallic pads or + $80 for premium semi-metallic pads w/ free shipping
They also offer pads on their own.

When I got rotors and pads for mine they even came with new clips and new rubber boots for the caliper pins which I understand is normally more expensive, and the free shipping makes a big difference. It did take about 2 weeks to get them as I believe they are all made-to-order.
