It's safe to say probably everyone's accord will have warped rotors. I'm either going with the BBK or drilled rotors with ebc pads.
One thing I want to advise you of, is the noise you get from drilled or slotted rotors. If the noise does not bother you, I do feel the drilled rotors will keep the pads/rotors cooler, however, you do lose surface area because of the holes in the rotor. Just out of curiosity, which drilled front rotors are you considering?It's safe to say probably everyone's accord will have warped rotors.

I would agree, my last new Honda, a 1997 Honda Civic EX, had warped rotors at 7,000 miles, and I was very gentle with the car, I guess old habits die hard.Own a Honda? Get familiar with having warped rotors.
I would suggest using Centric Premium Rotors as a replacement. They are made in the same factory as Brembo and its the exact same rotor with just a slightly different hat. They are about 1/2(or less) the price of OEM and will last longer. I run have been running these for years on the back of my race car and the quality is well documented on Evo & STI forums. If they are good enough for the track, they will do great on the street.
FYI- when they turn/cut/resurface your rotor it makes them thinner which makes them more likely to warp due to heating up faster, your better off replacing them.
I went with Centric rotors and OEM pads after I got the pulsation. This combo is working well.
^^^ This right here.Centric Premium Rotors and Centric Premium Pads is what I replaced my stock rotors and pads with. The stocks lasted till about 52,000 miles, they became warped over time from autocross.
When looking up the Centric parts (I used rockauto), you will only find them under a 9th Gen Sedan 4cyl. Make sure you order the 292mm rotors. Certain base models of sedans utilize a 11.2inch rotor and the higher models along with the coupes uses a 11.5inch rotor. Which is the difference between 282mm and 292mm.
Experienced this recently when the car was driven to Florida by the family and I flew down. The "warped rotors" became straight and true after a few "normal" brake pedal applications. All is fine again at approximately 30K.I thought a lot of what people think are "warped rotors" are really just uneven brake deposits on the rotor itself.
x2, except mine was a PA-MD-VA and back trip. Evened out by the time I was back, made a point to brake from 70 mph a bit firmly from time to time, and all the vibrations were gone. looking good at 33K miles.Experienced this recently when the car was driven to Florida by the family and I flew down.
