For Xmas I got the EBC 3D Sport rotors (gd7024 & gd7021). I store my car away for the winter and got my car out to install them last week on 5/3/2012.
4 days later I went to wash my car because it rained here the previous 3 days and the rotor hats have white spots all over them and the hats have also canged color from black to bronze. I called EBC Brakes and told them the problem and they asked me to send pictures, I did and called backed the next day and 2 people told me the same thing. The zinc coating to preserve the color is not guaranteed to last after a acidic rain or snowfall. It did rain here for 3 days in a row but I told them this is BS and this should not happen to a brand new rotor. He said again sorry it is not guaranteed not to happen. I then said if I should have the hats painted would this happen again. He said a lot of people have them powdercoated and i said now thats more money out of my pocket to have them black again. He also said that the white speckles were from the rain and it could be cleaned off and I told him that I tried washing it off and after drying it would come back. Stay away from these rotors. Bad experience for me. A picture of what I started with and after. Pics arent real good with my phone. Sorry.
