Those actually aren't all that bad. But..if you are planning on really upping the power here in the future I might look into a 13 inch brake kit.

drilled/slotted rotors are not an upgrade, they are a looks mod. They can also crack and warp depending on brand. I had a set on my old car and drove it easy and they warped in 20k miles.

slotted rotors are an upgrade, drilled not so much unless as with baer and such, the holes are designed into the rotor rather than simply added on

I use powerslot rotors and Hawk HPS pads on the buick, stopping power increased tenfold, and 35k + miles of hard driving on the rotors, on the second set of pads, and no warpage yet
