I have a 2011 CTS Coupe Premium and its time to replace the brakes and rotors. I want to upgrade...Can anyone recommend a pads rotors and calipers package? I'm not trying to go crazy but something mid range dilled and/or slotted....

If you're replacing the callipers then I would suggest looking into doing the cts V brembo swap. There is a great thread with full parts list and install photos.

R1 concepts worked for me. But I'll go back to acdelco pro durastop simply for the cost once these wear out. I didn't notice a big enough perf difference to stay

I agree with arw1510...I have the slotted/cross drilled rotors from R1 Concepts and went with Akabono street performance pads. No fade, noise, or dust with this combination.

I don't know any packages that would include calipers but I have done ebc dimpled and slotted rotors and ebc red stuff on my cts. I preferred the dimpled over drilled due to some stories of cracking under heavy braking and heat.

Total was under 1k and car stops much shorter than stock as well as MUCH less dust than stock pads. Good investment in my opinion if you're going to stick with stock calipers.
