    You most likely need new rotors. They're pretty cheap at a local auto store :)

    I was thinking about upgrading my pads and rotors anyways. Is there a big difference between oem rotors, and the ones that are slotted and drilled? Also whats the difference between the oem pads and ceramic pads? Also is there a way to clear the ABS light?

    unless you do road racing, i would stick with stock stuff. if you want to upgrade, the popular choice on here is brembo blanks with hawk hp pads. good and economical.
