Doug -

I just had my stock setup upgraded to a set of slotted rotors from Stasis
Engineering (http://www.stasisengineering.com/products.htm) and Carbotech
pads.  The rotors are a direct replacement for the stock rotors, with no
change to the calipers.  Total with parts and labor was around $1000 - the
majority of that being the cost of the rotors.

MotoPersona here in the Chicago area did the work for me, and after a bit of
fiddling everything seems to work well.  Compared to the stock set-up, the
brakes seem to be much more aggressive.  I haven't put them to the test at a
track day yet though, so I'm not sure how they'll hold up.  Both Stasis and
MotoPersona claim that I should be able to do track events without warping.
Ask again in October after I do the Audi club event at Gingerman...
