Rotors/Brake Suggestions?

I've seen quite a few suggestions on brakes and rotors but they were pretty old posts.

I'm looking for the best bang for your buck performance brakes and drilled/slotted rotors. stay under $300 - may a little higher.

What are you guys currently running and do you have suggestions?

I went with cross drilled and slotted from R1 concepts. I've put about 85000 miles on them and have had zero problems.

I've been looking at the R1concepts too, but they are a little out of my budget

thats weird cause amazon says they will fit my 08 sedan and i know they shouldn't use different brake sizes throughout the 5 years they made this car.

Well idk about the amazon stuff. But the only difference between the base level and the other trim levels that I could notice when it comes to brakes is the base 4 banger has less braking material on the pads themselves. I've since been buying brakes for the gt model to use on my base and I haven't had a single issue.

I compared part numbers on autozone's site between the years and trim levels and only notices a pad difference. I hope this info helps.
