Why did you go with V6 size rotors up front?
Breaking feels awesome now, I can stop on a dime! I do need to pay attention to those behind me because they can't always stop as quickly I've noticed.
Basically, I would upgrade to bigger breaks if this damn car wasn't speed limited and there was an issue with breaking. I could remove the speed limiter but I haven't upgraded the drive shaft to be able to handle over 120MPH.
I didn't feel the need to upgrade to bigger brakes as I wouldn't have seen any real increase in feel for the V6. I opted for better brakes instead of bigger as a higher quality brake gives you more brake "bite" and high performance. The slots help with removing excess brake dust and the drilled design helps the rotors cool faster, which in turn decreases brake fade.
I was looking at the GT rotors for the front, but again, these V6 as much as we want, and not ultra high performance machines. So I took the bang-for-my-buck route.
You can upgrade to GT rotors, but I doubt you'll see real increase at the speeds most commonly driven. That's of course just my opinion.
