I got my 4 brake rotors here R1Concepts.com - Brake Rotors, Brake Pads, Brake Calipers about year and a half or so. I order from them because another member (seriousblack) got them there too and he had a good experience in terms of product quality . So far they are still in great condition. I ordered the premium cross drilled and slotted ones with Akebono ceramic pads, no noticeable improvement when I drive by myself, but when the car is full of people and towing my small trailer the difference is huge compare to the stocks, dont know why but it is a big difference when towing.

I don't really have close up pics, but there are a few on my albums where you can see the rotors.

Googling around I found the website for the aforementioned rotors in my first post from Cquence Motorsports, looks like a nice bet from a brake parts company (not a generic "we make anything" kind of co.) and cost half as others, even less on ebay.

That front bumper deal that REDROGOBZ has is this.Genuine Toyota RAV4 Front Guard Lower Finisher Rav 4 | eBay

Other members have this as well.

I believe in safety, education, and enforcement, not banning, ignorance, and blame.

I got some EBC green pads for our RAV4, and they made a world of difference in stopping power - the "brake-in coating" spat out tons of dust, but they seem to have settled down a bit
