I have been buying Premium Centric rotors from rock auto that come with a black "e-coating" on the drum and vent areas for MUCH less than that. I would suggest you buy these and have them slotted locally.
Also, those rotors are from DRT in Lowell MA. I heard good things about them and bought some rotors from them. The fronts were vibrating within abour 5k miles and I replaced them with Centrics.
For a 2000 9-3 the parts would be:

With 5% discount and shipping you'd be looking at a grand total of around $163.41. Can a couple machine shops to see how much slotting would be, but I wouldn't even bother.

I would personally go with the Brembo. They are $62.58/pc for fronts and $40.70/pc for rears. Total of just over $200 for the set front/back.

Basically just for looks, but I like the look of drilled or slotted depending on the car. Pros say the crossdrilled can risk cracking, and that slotted are stronger--but also that F1 uses solid rotors.
Zimmerman do rust badly as mentioned, at least in my experience, but Brembo/Stoptech seem to not rust for not much more $.

If you are going to go with slotted/drilled rotors just pay more attention to wear and pad/hardware replacement. Otherwise you will have uneven wear pattern/s. These are good rotors for the money IMO.|

9-3 drilled and slotted rotors questions
What are you experiences with drilled, slotted or both rotors? Anything worth while other than the look. example Saab 9 3 SE 99 02 Drill Slot Brake Rotor Front Rear | eBay
