Jeremy,
Im looking for a set of B5 S4 cross drilled, slotted, or both CD/slotted rotors for my soon-to-be setup on my B6 A4 front end. At the same time, I would like to find matching rotors for a stock 3.0 rear setup. I was hoping you could throw a couple prices at me as far as what you can do for me. Thanks for your time... and I wanted to put this as a public thread because Im sure others have or want to do a similar upgrade and this may be helpful for them... [up]

I'm here, just been helping the techs in the shop (we've been very busy).

Unfortunately of Zimmerman, ATE, or Brembo (all OEM manufacturers), there is ONLY one non-solid rotor option;

#1 Zimmerman cross-drilled (we've had great success with them)

The "OEM slotted/drilled" rotors and such that places like E*S are selling are NOT OEM rotors. It's a bit of tricky marketing. The rotor that ECS starts with might be an OEM Zimmerman, Brembo, or ATE rotor, but the OEMs do not make a drilled/slotted rotor.
Drilling or slotting a rotor after the manufacturing process is not a good idea for longevity or quality. So, beware of said "OEM drilled/slotted" or "OEM slotted"(non-nuclear-atom-type-slots). These ARE NOT OEM rotors.

So, I'd suggest either Zimmerman cross-drilled's or the DBA slotted rotors that AWE sells (AWE sells good stuff--we are their NW dealer).

For rear B6 A4 3.0L rotors, all I see available are the OEM solid rotors.

Please let me know if we can help at all.
