 I would suggest that you pass on using 312 rotors.? You need all the stopping power you can get with such a heavy car... using the 323x30 rotors would be your best option for a cost effective upgrade.

I personally would go with the A8 rotors.  My experience with aftermarket 
drilled or slotted light weight rotors is that they soon crack and warp. 
The production rotors are time tested and will last a lot longer.  You will 
not likely see better performance with the machined rotors, if you are only 
street driving. That's my 2 cents, and that's just about what it is worth.
