Drilled or Slotted Rotors

Brakes

Vehicle Information: Model (Boxster, Boxster S,Cayman, Cayman S): Boxster; Year: 1998; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock; Total Mileage: 60500; Transmission: Tiptronic;

I wanted to replace my OEM plain rotors with the new drilled or slotted replacement rotors (example Brembo type rotors). I will be using 17" wheels and just highway and street driving. Will this have a negative effect. One vender was telling me that drilled rotors may have a tendency to warp and crack and I should consider slotted. I was reading that slotted rotors were like using a cheese grader to the brake pads. I read in "2008 Wheel Guide" magazine that Brembo has these OEM replacement drilled rotors. I do not want to replace the whole brake system, just the rotors with the OEM calipers. I am confused and would like information and perhaps even part numbers and brands.Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.Manuel Mezahome email: mpmeza@hal-pc.orgwork email: mmeza@dow.com
