Scroll down to the R129 forum (your car is a R129 chassis). The place is full of R129 owners and every one of them will have an opinion about rotors and pads for your car.
Since I'm about to be in the market for rotors and pads for my R129, I'll be interested in the advice you get.
Right now I'm looking at OEM Silver Arrow rotors (which can be had cheap from PartsGeek) and Akebono pads. The SA rotors are drilled front and back, so they should work better in the wet.
