Im thinking of replacing those stock brake rotors with slotted/drilled rotors mostly for looks. I dont race on the track and for ease i want to keep my current calipers. Any idea on what my options are? and how big can i go with the stock calipers, or how big are the stock rotors and am i forced to stay with that size due to the fact that i keep my stock calipers for now??
Thanks!!

If you get some TT carriers you can use 312mm discs.

I got Ferodo ds2500 pads and black diamond grooved discs and they are pretty good.

the most efficient street setup is blank rotors with a high metal pad.

The car comes stock with 288mm. Purems has a stage 1 front brake kit that uses the A8 size 312mm rotors along with the TT brackets.

They also have a stage 2 brake kit that includes Porsche Boxster brake calipers with the 312mm rotors.
