I have the Eline rotors on my GT. They worked really well for a year or so, but now I'm having some braking issues (could be that I have original calipers). I bought the pads and rotors, the pads wouldn't fit, so I contacted customer support and issued me a partial refund and return label. The customer service was good.

My last 8 sets of D/S rotors came from Ebay. They came from different vendors and were purchased based on price. The first two sets had runout issues on the front before the pads needed to be replaced. I have had no issues with the rotors that were listed G3000 grade, ISO9002, QSO9000 & TUV certified. The zinc plating is a little different at break in but well worth the eye candy behind the wheels. The EBC pads seemed to seat quicker than most on plated rotors. Shop around, the last set cost me $178.00 with free shipping. Just my two cents, hope this helps.

I have a set from Ebay on my 88, but I can't remember the brand. I bought them because my brakes were "pulsating" (from warped rotors), and they fixed that. I really didn't care whether they were drilled/slotted or not, but I got them mainly because they are plated, so that the part that is not rubbed by the pads does not rust, and they look really good behind modern spoked wheels that show the rotors.
I have had them on the car for some time, and found that there is a benefit from the slots. They seem to keep grooves from forming in the rotors as they wear. so that the surface where the pads rub remains flat and "pretty".
Later, I bought a set for my 86. It has the Grand Am/Seville brake mod, so I bought 88 Grand Am front rotors for all wheels. They are also plated, and look good behind the wheels.

Plated like these ones?. They do say ISO9002 & TUV certified, G3000 grade.

Would the gold look good behind chrome wheels?

I bought the eBay drilled and slotted rotors and made sure they were zinc coated.
I don't know that the drilling and slotting is especially useful for a Fiero, but I was a sucker for the looks.
Make sure that the rotors are American made, since some of the members have had bad luck with items made in China.

I have the R1 concepts on my 88 for about 2 1/2 years now with no issues. Mine is more of a weekend/project car than a daily driver but so far they have performed well. The rears fit a bit tight in the pads at first but they broke in well.

I bought a set of slotted/cross drilled rotors and ceramic pads on eBay for about $200 shipped from Hydra Brakes. They are located in Ontario. They even called me up that night at home just to confirm a couple of things. Wow! Great communication for an eBay purchase! The brakes work great, but I haven't had a chance to run them too long. There was also a break-in procedure that I have never seen before...not sure if it is totally necessary, or if the people who have problems with other brakes didn't bother with whatever procedure they were given. I followed the procedure step by step just to be sure.

Great idea, I believe gold rotors would look great behind chrome rims. IMPO the silver zinc appears kind of blue when compared to chrome.
