99 Boxster Rotor Replacement?

Got to replace my rotors on my 99 Boxster and was wondering if I should just go stock Or maybe a slotted zimmerman, and pads of course... Any ideas? Thanks...

Need a little more info: What kind of driving do you do? Do the stock pads create too much brake dust? Do you want a more sport-like look?

I went with drilled zimmermans. Whatever you buy, make sure the hats are painted or they're zinc plated so they don't rust.

I will second the zimmerman. I use them on all my porsches and they are great. I intend to go with ceramic pads next time to cut down on the dust.

I suspect Porsche don't paint the top hats the way they rust after a few wettings by rain and washing......
As for colour match, I just used silver heat resistant paint - VHT if I remember correctly. You can't tell any mismatch once the wheels are in place.
