For the price of OEMs at the dealer you can get better aftermarket rotors...

Brakemotives seem to fit your bill.
They are cross drilled and slotted.

They have a good rep over at Acurazine.

Hmmm

I do not know about the quality, so I dont want to speak as if I did, but I enjoy the fact you can choose the manufacturer; nothing to do with costs. Never try to be cheap on car parts, especially when it involves safety.

As someone said earlier, Acura and Cheap shouldn't really be on the same sentence. In addition, as mentioned also, for the price of the stealership you can get great quality OEM grade. So that is what I would rather have for the basis of money[+/- Stealership]

It's not all about money.

It's about the value of the money you're spending on something.

Call me crazy, but I would prefer to purchase aftermarket rotors such as Stoptech, Power Slot, Brembo, Rotora that outperforms OEM rotors in stopping power and build quality, and costs around the same/ OR cheaper.

I used duralast rotors F&R and ceramic pads ($321 autozone) and it has been flawless. I also use my car for work and to go to bars. Good luck with the brass screws in the rotors, i didnt have an impact driver and my neighbor used a torch to melt them out..........but that would be the most "unexpensive"

I tried drilled and slotted rotors on my last car, did not like the noises, and did not feel that there was enough benefit in the type of driving I do. I don't heat the brakes enough to value the extra cooling effects.

I have the 2004 TL manual transmission with Brembo brakes, and have stuck with the OEM disks - replaced once at 52K miles. The pads I have tried some of the aftermarket ones, and have gone back to the stock Brembo pads as well. They work well.

I tend to sell either the Ctek or the Powerslot rotors the most. I'm not particularly like drilled rotors. Vane and pad compound technology as come such a long way since the early 90's to where drilling the rotor for better heat dissipation is not really necessary. The sacrifice of contact area is too great on a street car. If you honestly need better brake cooling, you're better off plumbing some brake ducts.

But, anyways, if you guys need rotors, I am a Centric Parts/Stoptech/Power Slot dealer. The sales manager at Stoptech is a long time buddy of mine

i think the best acura brakes out there will be the cross drilled and slotted rotors with ceramic pads. Cross drilled will make the rotor generate less heat and will get used less faster. I bought mine for my rsx-s 2006 at crossdrilledbrakes.com. I got my order in 1 day and the brake kit comes with lifetime warranty.
