its pretty much your preference IMO. I think they disperse heat pretty much the same. personally I like the drilled rotors.

im sure that drilled/slotted rotors have a benefit in braking, but first of all it wouldnt even be noticeable at all on the streets.. second of all, you need to buy quality parts or else they are most likely just gonna warp or crack.. so is it worth the price??? Not to me.. Just get some blanks and some nice sport pads..

Some blanks with some deep red calipers would be nice.

thanks for the reply i really want it for the looks with my rims you like i said in my post you can see the whole rotor so i guess from the feedback its ok to go with the drilled. so where can i get some good ones cheap?

go with brembo blank. slotted/drilled has no effect on braking distance and they will be weaker than stock. Only thing they might do is resist warping better, but this is only an issue on 01+ civics.

If you like the drilled look, go drilled.

I mean you might get a tiny little bit more thermal capacity at the expense of surface area. In other words, it's not going to help you any. Probably won't hurt anything other than your wallet though

Myself? I got the $20.00 blanks and painted the hats wrinkle black. They work fine.
