About to purchase Rotors and brake pads.. Looking for advice

Experienced some serious vibrating when braking hard from high speeds so I've been shopping around for Front rotors and Brake pads.

After searching extensively online. I am leaning towards these 2 choices

http://performance.importrp.com/ebc-...s/g-63416.aspx

OR

http://performance.importrp.com/ebc-...t/g-63415.aspx

Does anybody have experience with EBC slotted or Drilled rotors? I'm leaning towards the USR slotted because of complaints of noisiness from the drilled version. Anybody Opinions?

Also my car is a 2011 550i M and the website shows the USR rotors have 2 sizes that fit my car. 13.7" and 14.7" Did the 550I come with different size brake rotors? Do i need go take my wheel off and measure it to figure out which one i need?

For the brake pads I like what i've read about the EBC "redstuff". Any feedback would be much appreciated.

I've had slotted and drilled rotors and would never do drilled again. Micro-cracks develop around the holes. I have no experience with EBC, but have had good service with r1 rotors.
