CST-V Calipers and Rotors on SRX sport with 20"

So I need new brakes for my SRX and thought why not upgrade to the CTS-V brake setup. Found some OLD threads stating that the rotors are a problem, but nothing new. Has anyone done this? What do I need to do it?

^ This man speaks the truth. In everyday driving situations and not racing, tire compound, tire pressure, pad material and weather condition is where it's at. The big 4 pistons calipers and huge drilled/slotted/dimpled rotors sure do look nice but if you're not autox or racing, I doubt it really matters much.
Cone, I remember you posted that pic of your Eclipse? Is your the gst or gsx? Sorry if i guessed the wrong car entirely.

To add on my experience with Big Brake Kits, I did a NSX BBK conversion in my old Honda Prelude. Compared to those tiny little honda brakes that made my SRX stock brakes look like bbk's, I couldn't tell a difference in everyday driving. I don't do any autox so if there was any benefit there, it wouldn't have matter.
Props for doing it. About the whole wife thing..LOL ditto
