Good to know. I'd like to go with slotted/drilled rotors next. And I need them soon, my front rotors are warped.

are you sure of this? was the runout checked by a tech?

i ask this because when i bought my wife's (used) car, the brakes were surging badly at all speeds. these brakes are high performance brembo units and rotors were vented all around like out W8s'. i called ipd (volvo performance/parts) to look into buying some rotors and the sales guy instead convinced me to try a procedure that he was sure would work. it was to get the car up to 70+ mph and apply the brakes as hard as i could X 4. he said two things 1. sometimes rotors develop a varnish of pad material that can be removed this way and 2. modern rotors, especially vented rotors almost never warp. so i took jenny's 300 bhp wagon on the interstate that afternoon and after a few neck-braking sessions it really worked!
so before putting hard-earned money (that you should be saving for your homeymoon) towards rotors, go have some high speed fun! let us know how it goes

Oh no, they've been gone for awhile. I've just been putting off the inevitable...I need to get it done before winter, that's for sure.
