Does anyone have any experience with the Drilled and slotted brake rotors and pad kits on Ebay? Have some on a 92 SVX, but they were on it when I purchased it and have no idea where they came from.

For most drivers D & S are for bling purposes only.

We don't ( can't) drive non turbo cars to get any  real benefit.

If you are in the mind set to just go for it, I'd go with reputable types from e bay sellers, ie:  No unheard of brands.

If they came on the car, don't have uneven pad deposits, aren't cracked from the drilled holes or at the minmum thickness - just run them.

But, as said above, a daily driver does not get any benefit from them. In fact, modern pad materials even for racing do not outgas as badly as in the past so, even some track cars wouldn't need them. Of course, if you're gonna track the car regularly, you would need to use w'ever combo rotor and pad works best for you.

If you plan to refresh all 4 corners, get Centric premium rotors and try Centric PosiQuiet Ceramic pads - good value. If you track occasionally - or zoom around in a spirited manner all the time, upgrade the pads to Stoptech Street Performance.

On a car that old, you should consider all new rubber lines too. maybe 4 in the back (?) and 2 up front? not sure. That old rubber probably balloons a lot and fresh lines won't - more solid brake pedal feel. Fluid flush might be a good idea too.

Autocross and open track car. Is also daily driven quite often. Have killed stock rotors in a weekend on the track, but these are holding up really well. Based on my experience with these I want them on my other SVX's (3)

got it. You might consider slotted only but, as fast as you will go thru brake components, you'd likely change rotors before any cracks showed up around drilled holes anyway.

someone at NASIOC might have experience with the ebay parts.

I'm not running a car like you are but I've had good advice from the guys at http://www.knsbrakes.com/c/home
