Default Anyone tried these Brakes

Its time for new Rotors and I seen this kit. I don't track the car so I don't want to spend a lot of money other than a rare autocross event its a weekend driver. This looks like a upgrade without spending too much money.

So what is everyone else replacing there Rotors with? is OEM the way to go?

Not sure about the rotor quality here, but that deal is better than I got at KNS. (I won't use them again...and I am sure they prefer I don't too)
