So, getting the car the end of this week. Need a first mod. It needs new front brakes so should I go with drilled and slotted rotors all the way around with new pads? While I do that I would probably paint the calipers also. Or should I go with tint and just stick in new pads up front for now. Tint would be professional install. Put a poll if you don't wanna type :rolleyes:

I would usually say tint...but since you need brakes anyways I vote for rotors/pads
If I end up doing the brakes what color should I paint the calipers. I was thinking of blue and tinting the tails. But then I got to thinking if I do red and leave the tails it may match good. The car is electric blue. What do you think of that.

I want to keep at least the Pontiac emblem and will probably leave the GTP emblem if I were to touch them at all. Blue inlay on the pontiac tho

I have some of those! lol

Be safe...do the brakes first. I'd go slotted. Skip the drilled or dimpled.
They just make noise. I know...I have them.

As for color....hhmmmmmmmmm....I like mine yellow on the Electric Blue!

I do like the yellow on yours but I'm trying to stay away from too much contrasting colors. That's why I want to tint the tails and don't want chrome on my rims. Are you sure its the drilled part of the rotors making the noise and not the slots?

Brakes 1st. I like the idea if you tint the tails, blue calipers. No tint, red calipers
Ok, how about this. If I do the brakes I will paint the calipers red. Then if I don't like them after a while I can always paint them blue and tint the tails after.

I dont recommend you mod your car by poll or do anything to satisfy us.

Its yours car....do what you like. ;)
Correct, but I would hope if I had some dumb idea that I didn't think over enough you guys would warn me, lol. If a few people don't like it then tough, but if everyone doesn't like it...I think I'd rather think about it some more, haha :beer:

Figured I wouldn't make a new thread for this:

Was going to go with Cquence rotors but decided I may go with some ebay ones since they are cheaper and come with the pads. I usually don't like doing this but some people have said they are just as good. Anyone have a link or a seller name they know sell a good set. Thanks.
