      So i recently picked up an 07 rabbit and im lookin to do the brakes on it. Ya i know its not the fastest nor do i need a performance brake setup but im looking at slotted rotors jus to keep the brake dust from building up. Had drilled on my last car and they were noisey for citty driving.

      Looking at these rotors

      & hawk pads. I've only heard good about hawk pads but never anything about using them with slotted rotors.

      Looking for good braking when i need it and the hawk pads for less brake dust and less noise. Any opinions on this combo or other combos?

      Nothing wrong with the parts you selected but, plain rotors will be quieter and produce less dust.
