Why are you replacing the rotors? Unless they are warped or worn very thin, you should be able to replace several sets of pads alone before replacing the rotors.

Secondly, the cross drilled rotors are a waste of money. Crossdrilling was first done several years back to allow gases emitted from a particular pad material to escape. Since that time people feel that there is a functional advantage to crossdrilling. The only advantage is cosmetic.

Lastly, the dealer is not the most economical place to go for brake work. If the brakes are working smoothly, which indicates that the rotors can be reused, why not just slip in a set of new pads yourself? It is a very simple and quick job.

Good luck,
