I got these rotors and paired them with Xbrakes pads all around on my 2003 Nissan 350Z Touring. I do all my own repairs on my car, and these were not too hard to install. Compared to the OEM rotors these stop much harder. During spirited driving I actually lock them up getting on them before entering a turn. The pads and rotors are a little louder and produce more dust than OEM, but the added performance is well worth it. The rotors aren't as pretty as the drilled and slotted look, but they give all the performance I need to stop my car quickly from 150+mph as well as not hurting my wallet like Brembo or DBA would.
