These rotors look great on the car- I got them to help put that "BAM" in the look we were going for when changing out the stock GT wheels (see my images in customer photos"). First, I changed out the stock rotors for these great looking DBA gold seriese drilled / slotted rotors (set them up with a new set of Hawk Street Brake pads). Then I replaced the stock wheels with the Saleen Heritage chrome wheels. (POPPING EYES)- That made a huge difference in the overall appearence of the car.
That being said, time to discuss performance- We are just gettin into the break-in period, but they seem to work pretty well. I was not overall impressed with breaking compared to the stock rotors (or the pads)- but it's not like I changed out the calipers. My functional reasoning for the purchase is the design for keeping the rotors cooler. I tend to be a little harder on my brakes than some might, so keeping the rotors from getting hot and warping is important.
Considerations- If you want to change the appearence of your mustang and upgrade your brakes a little- this is the rotor for you. BUT, if you are looking for a BIG difference in braking, you should really be looking at a 6 piston brake upgrade kit.
BOTTOM LINE- They are as advertised, look great, and I consider them to be worth the price. I would definitely buy them again- it was a great invesment.
