Default Attn Acura God, parts question

My 93 Vigor need new front rotors, and wheel bearings. I'm going to get the
bearings from Acura, but the rotors are pretty pricy. I have found some
slotted and cross drilled Brembro rotors online and was suprised to find
them cheaper than factory ( 90 bucks a set). My question is, how do they
compare to factory? Obviously factory are not going to have the machining
done to them, but in effectivness and durability? Also should i expect any
problems with my factory brake pads? Any input is welcome. This is the
last measure in my "warped rotor" brake shudder saga as the labor is
outragus on the replacement of the rotors themselves. Thank you Dave and
Group. Marko

I can certainly say I'm happy with my Brembo rotors with about 10k on
them. They're not slotted or cross drilled, but given the fragility of
Honda brakes I'm not sure I'd want them to be. Running with OEM pads has
given me great performance.

Good input thanks did you get them as an upgrade or as a more economical
replacement? I'm not going to kragen though. lol

Brembo replacements are good replacements. The factory pads will work just
fine. Are you going to do the work on the car yourself? If so and you need
some info let me know. I have done this hundreds?! of times...
