Anyone have any idea how hard it is. Is it worth my time and troubles to attempt it myself, vs. sending it out to have it done???
I'm relitively handy, and I've seen the DIYs for the pads, but I can't find anything about the rotors. I worked on them about 20 years ago, once whild in my Uncle's garage, but that was a LONG time ago and a lot of car generations back (a set of screws held the rotors on the hub, and that was it, Pull the screws and pull the rotor right off).

Cool, I'm ordering my Drilled and slotted sets front and rear and changing out the pads. I guess with the stock rims I was grinding on the OEM rotors pretty bad and never heard it. now with the 18's it sounds terrible..

The Oems are groved enough in the front to need replacing rather than a resurface :(

you will love the EBC rotors... that's what I have. Careful, I have ceramic pads and they hot spotted the rotors after a bit of "spirited" driving.
