Well, some may know that I installed drilled rotors on my Intrigue (posted a topic about it in 2005). I'll admit they looked really cool and all. But after four years this is what they look like...

Wait, that doesn't look so bad, does it? Well...take a look at the back of the rotor...

The rotors were just removed on Saturday...the corrosion you see on the braking surface is low spots. That is my front rotor...both looked equally as bad. The rear rotors didn't look as bad.

All four rotors replaced with NAPA Ultra Premium rotors. They look really good too. I had previously installed some NAPA Adaptive One pads as well.

You can read about em at the NAPA Brakes web site.

That does look pretty bad. What brand rotors did you use? I have seen some online that are supposedly warranted for life. Anyways, I am not much a fan of drilled rotors. I have read a couple articles that have pushed me more torwards the slotted or OEM ones.
