Mountainsman The Jaguar brakes are very good - and better than the brembo brakes on our Range Rover Sport MY14 5.0SCV8. I appreciate that the RRS is heavier. The brembos will fade, but have never had fading issues with the F-type R or XFR, no matter how spirited the driving has been.

Enthusiast Cross-drilled rotors help with cooling in the highest performance situations and definitely look cool. However, the wear quicker, cause more wear on the pads, and tend to crack around the holes. Definitely a plus and minus situation.

cordovan that is a nice setup.

Looks like a 6 pot brembo caliper with 2 piece drilled rotors.

Jmrscuderia I'm planning to put. Brembo brakes on mine, they are much bigger, nicer and better.

I've heard the same thing on plain rotors without slots and holes, some are just as good as the vented rotors.
Seems like Jaguar has some proof of them making a difference enough that they put them on their cars.

Brake rotors

Does anyone know why the rotors on the F are not cross drilled? It seems common practice on all performance cars for the obvious reason of keeping the rotor temperature cooler. I can't think of a reason why they wouldn't have done it, but there must be one since the cost is negligible for an apparent benefit.
