and we have another tyrade by someone that got called out for giving information he has no right to give out... awesome.


and like the others said unless you are doing some track use of the car (autocross or the like) you can stick with what OEM gave you. C-Tek is the best deal around. then get your self some nice pads. i prefer the dustless ceramic ones. there are some that are a step up from street that paired with decent oem rotors will give you noticeably better stopping.

Cause honestly you said the same thing I did ..


As mentioned above, my point was the Op doesn't need what came on the car, as well Saabeh pointed out and you went to Cali and back to reassure.
You still don't understand. This is like trying to explain calculus to a clam.

Your point is wrong; the OP does need what came on the car for the reasons I specified. Saabeh's picture of his read brake rotors shows the VENTED rotors that are stock on most years of Aero sedans and wagons.

Again, you have zero knowledge of anything outside your own narrow area of interest. Stick to it and everyone wins.

This should help old b202nut a bit with brake disk language:





Slotted rotor on the right, plain on the left.

B202nut, pay attention, as this is for your benefit:


These are vented rotors on the left (stock on most Aeros), solid on the right:


This is a vented rotor with slots:


This is a cross-drilled vented rotor:


These are slotted and drilled SOLID rotors:

One more again.


Slotted/drilled are not necessary.not required.


Don't care how many pictures you post. He can put non drilled rotors and be just fine.

Vented is another thing in itself.

I said initially slotted/drilled are not necessary. I can say 100 more times.


Meaning rotors with he fancy cuts and drille holes are not requiredfor safety and reliability...

But thanks for the education.

I owner quite a few Mercedes Benz CL 500 and CLks

All came with the fancy pants drilled and slotted rotors. Always replaced with non drilled and non slotted aftermarket discs.

Never had a problem with breaks

Compared to a Benz a saab is a yugo and you cannot pay me to believe those fancy discs are necessary


I am done here.

One more time, go to autozone pay for cheap discs and move on.


Leave the slotted and drilled stuff for the Porsche and Merc drivers

You don't need them.

Gudday

what are you smoking?

how can you possibly say that something that will stay hot, has virtually no heat dissapation (a rotors worst enemy is heat if you have any clue at all about any moving vehicle on the planet) is just as reliable as something that is designed to vent off heat?

putting a solid disc on a newer car with the weight, power, and frequent braking they would have is stupid, dangerous and frankly life threatening to everyone involved.

please keep your comments to something you have a clue about which isnt any new vehicle based on your moronic advice

b202nut is not saying to avoid vented rotors, he is saying that drilled rotors are unnecessary.
