    Cross drilled are more prone to cracking then slotted.

    Track use = slotted but more importantly a quality rotor with high carbon content steel e.g. DBA 4000

    Street use = plain rotor save the money.

    Drilled is purely cosmetic and actually has less surface area and more prone to crack.

    Cross-drilled shouldn’t crack if done properly; but I have no idea whether it’s common to not do it properly.

    Save your money! Ive had both, drilled crack even if you don't give them a hard time. Slotted are better but is it really worth it?? Probly not.
    But hey if you like them get them mate.

    Aren’t the 370mm two piece, per fitted to the CTS-V, the ideal size for your six pots?

    Either importing GM / Brembo or going local dba T3 5000 Series will cost about a grand. Totally recommend them, just don’t try and convince the Missus why though...

    Some are dimpled rather than drilled right through. So, you get the aesthetic, without being prone to cracking. RDA perhaps? Far cheaper than DB and fine for street use.

    Like I have, dba T3 5000 Series. They are much lighter unsparing rotational mass, just a bit heavier on the cheque account at over $500 each

    are you running 6 p / 4p setup? If so are you running 370mm f and 360mm r in those? Plus I don’t want to go overboard on rotors that are wearing item. Medium spec would suit me.

    4p / 4p 360mm. My previous T3 4000 lasted 180k km, so compared to say tyres or brake pads cost is well amortised.
