Going to go with Hawk HPS in the front for better performance @ the autocross.
Can I just throw these pads on my stock rotors so long as they are in good shape (no grooves)? Or should I get some OEM Brembos while I'm at it?
Thanks.

Re: Do I need new front rotors (21K miles) when installing new pads? (vwbora1)

If you have the $, go with the Brembos, otherwise just have the rotors turned before you put the new pads in.

I'd go with new rotors.
If you get the existing ones turned all you are doing is removing material which will make it more likely that you'll warp the rotors during autoX.

Re: Do I need new front rotors (Jeckyll)

I did my first brake job at 35k and I did not change the rotor and just got them turned, but if I had to do it again I would buy new rotors. After a few swift canyon runs the rotors warped so now I got to get new rotors and pads. So learn from my mistake.
