EBC brake parts?

I'm looking into new front rotors and pads. Ebc has drilled and slotted rotors for about 170 each and green stuff pads for 80 each. Aprox 500 for the set. Is it really worth it? Any personal experience with this brand? Or another quality company to look for?

Don't get drilled rotors if salt is applied to your roads in the winter.

I plan on parking it for the winter . With the new coil overs and new hood, I want to keep it nicer than I did before

EBC Green stuff are great pads. I used Hawk most recently and they kick off way more dust.

I never had any problems with EBC greenstuff on my LS. Also for rotors I just used Duralast OEM blanks from autozone. Even on my SS I didn't go all out. I used Duralast Gold Cmax Pads and Duralast rotors cost me about $140 for new pads for my brembos and rotors. I don't see you having any problems with the EBC parts, I just felt it wasn't worth spending $500 for my car. Maybe if it was a big power track car I would have, but as it is now its a modest power daily driver.
