Rotor Help ASAP

So I want to know what you think about these ? I want to place an order today. I really like the look of the drilled/slotted but I want to make sure they are real as I've just been told that Zimmerman only makes these for the front?!

I was just on the line with FCP after ordering shocks/struts all around (Sachs).

They offered this kit

What are your thoughts?

A little update. They are genuine Zimmerman rotors. The drill them at their site. I'm going to take the plunge and hope they were don't right lol. They will look amazing once they are on. Hopefully they will stop just as good too. I'm going to go with the Akebono's unless anyone else thinks I should go OEM pads. I know I could do without the dust lol.

No responses huh. Ok. Well, I made the purchases. I figured this would be worth a look. I have a lot going into the car this weekend. The rotors are great. Click image for larger version

Those look good. Are they all Zimmerman F&R? FCPEuro told me only the fronts were available in Zimmerman brand.

For my Audi, they said Zimmerman only made them for the rear, wth??

Let me know how they turn out as I'd be interested in a set for the Audi A8. I'd go with just the cross drilled ones though.

Yeah. FCP said the same thing. I got them from DRT-sport.com

They are Zimmerman front and rear. Zinc coated.

They should be put on today. I'm waiting for a strut mount sent overnight from FCPEuro as they kindly sent me two different Mounts with all the rest of the stuff I ordered. Depending on the time the package gets here, I might be pushed be until Monday. As soon as they go on, I will post pictures. I have a lot of stuff going into the car with this VO.

Rotor Help ASAP

Ok. So it is done. They work well and look good. One problem is that I need to have the calipers cleaned or painted as they are dingy. I think I'm going to try to clean them with a wire brush and some sort of brake clean. And the splash guard I guess is filthy too. So much so that I was to embarrassed to take a pic lol. I will pose pictures though tomorrow anyway. Stopping power is good though the pads have to bed and I have not had any quick stops. The rear struts feel tight and where they need to be. I'm doing double work but the fronts go on in a week or two.
