Default Warped Rotors on 2001 CL type S

I think its pretty much an accepted fact Hondas and Acuras from the
early 2000's has brake warping issues.
My '01 CL type S is no exception. hat are my options to stop this from
happening? I am a graduate student so money is an issue.
Is there a set of cross drilled rotors I can gat at a decent price?
What about slotted?

You can try that and waste your money, or you can read this:
http://www.brakeandfrontend.com/topi...torsDrums.aspx
Many articles there on brake problems, including vibration.

Actual "warping" is the LEAST common cause of brake vibration.

One thing I will check out is the torque on the lugs. It should be 80.
Also based on my research - slotted and cross drilled rotors on a street
car is a waste. Better quality normal rotors might be in order - there
have to be some that won't break the bank.

And what was your research? Did it include the issues mentioned here?:

Evenness of torque between the lug nuts has little or nothing to do with
it.

Before you spend even one penny on crappy aftermarket, try reading some of
those articles in the page I referenced above.

Especially, go to the 4th page in, and see the article entitled "10 of Your
Top Brake Pulsation Questions".

Will do.
I'm not doing anything for a while so I have time.

My first car was a 92 civic, and I had problems with it. I finally got
a new set of discs (which didn't cost that much) and made sure I
always checked the torque with my own wrench whenever the wheels had
been off. Never had a problem again once I made sure no one was
overtightening it.

My problems with warped rotors on my 03 TL went away after I replaced them
with aftermarket rotors, got the heavy duty ones. Has been great since.
