there is a thread on the top of this forum that says no more drilled/slotted rotor post with threads inside. We've covered it many times.

How are we suppose to recommend red/green if we have no clue how you drive or what you are using the car for?

blanks with green stuff for moderate driving. blanks with red stuff for heavier driving.

straight off the ebc website, greenstuff...
"Designed for premium street driving offering better brake effect at loads and speed. EBC Greenstuff has a high initial brake effect and gives drivers confidence from first application of the brake pedal. There is no such thing as a NO DUST pad. The very nature of how a brake works requires that some dust be generated to avoid rotor vibration (shimmying). The EBC pad creates less dust and dust is more easily washed off than most. All pads create more dust as they are bedding in especially if rotors are worn. Average friction coefficient 0.55"

and redstuff...
"Since this material was introduced in late 2003, it has received many positive write ups from performance drivers of faster cars such as the Impreza. You can read some of these write ups and comparisons to other performance materials on www.scoobynet.co.uk and www.subiegal.com. This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking. It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a saloon car 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph.

Features EBC Brake-InTM surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in.

Average friction coefficient 0.5"

any drilled and slotted rotors that claim they are brembo are not drilled and slotted by the manufacturer. brembo oNLY sells blanks as far as i know and the drilling and slotting is done after they are made, by another party. FYI ps slotted ones are awesome IMO

well we have threads full of facts and evidence that someone took the time to research, to pin up so they are easily accessible for you.

Just because you are new to the game and don't want to do a little homework, doesn't give you any special privalages on here.

Threads that ask which do people prefer, end up as polls, people post up "get blanks" or "get slotted" or "get drilled". They hardly explain anything, those threads that are pinned up actually have explanations.

I'm not trying to call you out or anything, it just makes me mad when you try to help somebody and they think "rofl. funny."

brembo makes (for our cars anyways): blanks, slotted, drilled rotors.

They do not however make slotted and drilled rotors for stock caliper applications.

EBCs are fine for the street. I'd stick w/ the green stuff if your car is a daily driver. The red is their 'race' pad which are pretty crappy IMO.

I never recommend slotted or drilled rotors for Integras.....ever. Stick with blanks for the reasons stated in that stickied thread.

be prepare for black rims... lol. they dust like crazy. oem is theway to go if you're just driving towork and back or school or whateversssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
EBCs are known to have very little dust. I ran the green stuff for 1 year... only because it only lasted one year on my slotted rotors... very good bite, but they just don't last long enough. The longevity might be due to slotted rotors, I'm not sure. They do dust very little though. I have Hawks now, Hawks definitely dust alot more than the EBCs

Interestingly, the Green Stuff has a better coefficient of friction than the Red Stuff [race] pads.
I don't know anything about either pad, but if that is the case, I figure it is because the compound differs from both, and that the Green pads could be either slightly larger or lighter or both or neither.
