Viggen front rotors vs. slotted brembos on GS

Need new front rotors...curious if there is any significant difference between the two besides price. The Brembos are made in Italy ( i think?) and not sure where the stock Viggen ones are made. Thoughts anybody?

well what are you putting them on? viggen rotors are bigger than regular ng900/9-3 rotors.

The stock viggen rotors arn't directionally slotted, which defeats the purpose of slotting them. I would say just get the Brembos w/o slots for everyday spirited driving.

A little background..

The Viggen/aero (along with most factory disks) used to be made in SE but they are now made in China, this is when they started coming with the tempera paint that washes off the hat. The used to be grey paint but the new is black. The Brembo 308mm are made in italy. You can see the difference in the castings. The IT brembos look more like the original Saab disks not the new China Saab disks.
