u could always buy ur OEM rotors and and send them to a machine shop for slotting (avoid cross drilling).

shouldnt be a problem... i did that to mine about 1.5 years ago...it can also be a good wear indicator :D

project miu and dba got great realiability...

last quite long if used with decent pads... (street use...if use those race metallic compound pads sure any disc also can became thinner at a fast rate)

I'm using Project Mu combined with the pads also for a few months already now. So far pretty satisfied. I bought the rotor at Kakimotor Sunway since they gave me a bit cheaper price than other shops (but the pads I bought at N1 Sunway).
I think you can also try Jun, it's a bit cheaper than Project Mu, can buy at Nagamotorsport Sunway. At the time, they did not have for my car, hence I bought the Project Mu.
DBA & Dixcel seem even more expensive. If want cheap rotor, can try search for Shoji brand (also Japan), but I'm not sure if they have slotted ones.

I suggest you also change the pads, cause that makes the most braking improvement. If want cheap one but still good I heard Trestor Blue is very recommended. Project Mu that I use also good but very expensive.

Cause when I went to Genting with the Mark X Club, one guy also uses the Trestor Blue and he said very significant improvement over stock. Then right then I remember your recommendation also several weeks before that you also recommended Trestor Blue. :biggrin:

i bought the pads for RM450
Slightly cheaper then EBC yellow....
A bit more expensive than my Project Mu, but again depends on the grade/level. P.Mu also has one higher grade than mine which is selling >rm500.

Whoa really? Hope it wont happen to mine.
AP Racing that expensive? I thought around 3-4k for 4pot BBK front only. But again can be different specs/levels, or maybe that price is complete with rear BBK too?
