Thanks for the input. I would honestly say that 'the look' is mainly what is driving me to want these brakes. I'm sure there will be noticeable differences in brake fade and the stopping distances will decrease over the brakes I have now since I have the smaller of the 2 brake offerings for TBs. And if I were to spend the money it would cost to upgrade to the larger TB brakes it would be the same or less to just do the CTS-V rotors with stock calipers. So if I'm going to do any immediate upgrade that will probably be it. Larger calipers may come later if the time and money is right. Like I said though... I just love how giant ass brakes look behind a nice set of big wheels on a nice performance truck/SUV. Here is the pic that is really driving this project right now:

Now on top of that, you can get a full set of C6 Z06 calipers for ~$1350 (not including pads), so for around $1800-2k I could do a full set of these
Remember machining costs too, unless you have access to a shop you're going to pay for it. How are you going to do brackets to mount the new calipers? Doubt they're going to fit with bigger rotors, if they do you wont have full contact area on the rotor so its a waste.

I wouldnt redrill rotors personally, you'll have the factory holes still there weakening the rotor.

Where are you getting rotors that cheap? Heck regular TB ones cost that much, SS ones are a little more.
