My DBA4000XS stop the car (2001 Honda Accord EX sedan) wayyyyyy better than stock. They have been paired with EBC Yellow Stuff, well worth the expense.
Gold paint at the center hub flakes off (as the hub heats and cools) and makes the it look cheap as if I painted it myself to look cool. DBA ditch the gold paint, cheapens a very good product.
The combination is quiet.
Install note: the hole for the for the screw to secure it to the spindle does not line up. Called the DBA phone number and all the gal could do was verify they shipped me the right stock number. This is why the poor rating on ease of install. Called the second number given to me, no answer (can't wait around all day for a return call- so for tech support I fail this)
The flaky paint reduces value to good, but what the purpose of the rotor is not to be all shiny and cool looking, but to provide better, controlled braking and that it does very well.
Now can you make one for a Saturn 2000 LW1??
At this point I would buy again, and again, and again.
I had Brembo crossed drilled on it before and they were good but warped within 10,000 miles.
