Be carefully with such no names. Even the brake discs should be handled with care. I've seen so many cheap copies coming from whereever in a bad quality.

To loose 20 or 30 euros would be ok, but to pay 512 dollars and to have no references is too much risk by my opinion.

my guess is they bought w8 rotors from vw or another source and put them on a drill press machine.

if that is the case they will warp and crack very quickly

also, who wants cross-drilled rotors???

slotted is the only type of performance rotor i would consider, and they would only increase performance for stopping in the rain.

slotted and cross-drilled rotors are a looks only item for the street in my opinion

Porsche rotors have holes cast in them, not drilled. Much less cracking.

Porsche uses holed rotors in street applications because the rotors offer reduced sprung weight and improved wet performance - which outweigh the disadvantages of reduced braking capacity and increased pad wear (when the brakes are sized correctly).

those weren't designed for the track. street cars IIRC.

just yankin' your chain

the W8 was designed for higher speeds than both of those, and accopmplishes it very well. "designed for the left lane of the autobahn" -some guy who works for VWoA. i'm also assuming that he was refering to the part of the autobahn that doesn't have speed limits.
