Hi, I'm new here so I'll probably ask lots of newbie questions and I ask for your patience
I own a "basic" white 2009 4cyl Rav4 and just recently the mod bug had started to bite me
I only want some basic upgrades and won't go over the edge with the mods and they'll mostly depend on how much would I need to spend since my money pit is already my motorcycle and I'm starting to stop myself from the frenzy of modding and spending $ on my toys!
I'm thinking about a couple mods that include:
1) Brake rotors (of the slotted/drilled/dimpled type)
2) fender flares
3) mud guards
4) caliper paint
I've being searching on the forum for some days but decided to open a new thread since most of the links with products or sellers I found are expired.
Since I need to change the brake pads soon I might start with the brake related stuff. I've seen a couple posts around on the web stating the drilled rotors might end up cracking under vibration with street use, what is the consensus here? The only purpose would be for aesthetics only, I have no problem at all with the OEMs so far but love the look. Here's a set I found on ebay, they run around $100 the pair which IMHO is not bad, these are from "Cquence Motorsports", any reviews or opinions in them?

Next step would be the fender flares, I know there are different sources and not all of them fit correctly, so any suggestions or opinions on where to get them at a decent price will be appreciated.
Mud guards will depend on whether or not I end up getting the flares so I'll need to decide on that first
I'll post pics later but it's nothing really special hehe!
Thanks in advance for any help! Happy Holidays!
