Cool Ballin' on a budget

Hey guys,
Like the title say's...I am looking to upgrade my brake system but am "ballin' on a budget"....I want steel braided lines and have been looking at some from Galfer as well as Speigler.

Need some advice on rotors though....would LOVE to go Galfer, but the $800 price tag is out of my budget....can anyone give me some good advice for rotors around $400 ??

I am not a track rider, just hit some twisty's every now and again. So cool looking rotors is rather high on my list

galfer is pretty nice. i have galfer rotors, pads, and lines. to be honest galfer and ebc are probably your best bet.....the other brands only go up from there. brakes are a very expensive mod.

For $800/set, you must be looking at their superbike rotors.
The regular waver rotors have come down in price during the last 2 years.
Take a look here and you'll see they're $577/set.

subsailor is right. the fronts are 575 for a set of the original wave rotors, rear is around 125. add some galfer sintered pads for about 125 for all pads and you got a basic brake upgrade perfect for canyon runs for about 850 complete. its what i did and makes a great difference.later on you can do braided lines for about 50-75 a set.

Try here too. You can get colored fittings and bolts at a decent price too for more bling.
