Front rotors

ATE are stock -- if they're good enough for Mercedes, I stick with them...

If you go for ATE, I would pick the Power Discs. ( Had them on another car and like the groove, which also serves as a wear limit indicator ).
Right now I'm running Zimmerman cross-drilled, and am very impressed with them as well ( could not get power dics for my current car ).

I've used Balo in the past. Pretty much on BMWs. On the 7 series, which is a heavy car, warped rotors are common. Going to Balo typically solves the problem.

They are made in Germany in their own foundry and precision machined and balanced...all done in house.

For the money they're excellent rotors.
