09 675 need rotors. advice?

I've put this off long enough. Time for new rotors. MCsuperstore has EBC pro-lite for $400 a set, or EBC pro-lite contours for 420 a set. Is there a performance difference? Are there other brands or sites I should consider, or dare I say more affordable? I ride every day for work, and will be doing more TDs this year, so I need something that will last and perform.

Why are you replacing? Warped, too thin to shave?

I've been told they're a little warped. I can feel a pulse if I'm on the brakes coming down from 100ish. I think the OEMs are only supposed to last about 20K miles.

From what I hear you don't notice much difference on the street and the OEM ones are decent. Haven't heard about EBC but its probably a one-up on the OEM's.

As much as you ride on the street i wouldn't buy something high end and wear it out or warp it just for a small edge on the track. $400/set is cheap, Spieglers and others are more expensive.

I def don't want OEM, that's $600. I've heard good things about EBC, but wasn't sure if there's any real difference between the pro lite and the pro lite contours.

No real difference imo other than appearance.
FWIW I can beat those prices.
