Ok I've been having problems with my brakes for sometime now with shudders and squealing brakes. I have tried all different types of pads an had the rotors machined. I thinking of upgrading the rotors to a slotted or cross drilled. Which am I better off going with ??? Any help would be awesome

Go slotted, drilled tend to crack.

hey man i had the same trouble so i got some DBA slotted and crossed drilled rotors with bendix heavy duty break pads... well worth the money i reckon and you can easily feel the difference in the brakes.
heres the website if you wanna take a look and i got the gold street series... they look pretty sweet on the car as well

Any new rotors will be an improvement, even plain (ie no drills,slots,dimples etc). Machining rotors is a waste of time imho. Standard rotors, are fine for everyday driving - but don't skimp on the pads (bendix ultimate rock my world).

Another thing - Ever since my VS (4 cars ago) I don't trust anyone with a rattle gun to tighten my wheels nuts. Ensure correct tightening procedure on your wheel nuts to prevent rotor warp / brake shudder.

The ultimates are OK, but in the good version (DB1344 Police Spec) are hideously expensive!!! QFM HPX is a Bendix Ultimate equivalent performance wise, but with less dust and rotor wear, and $79 per set front or rear, and come standard as the police spec DB1344 version, not DB1331.
