That's just a generic product image not necessarily 100% representative of the actual part.

Shouldn't you be riding ATV's in Caledon instead of shopping for Brakes? :P

No, they're not from the BMW dealership, but they are made by Brembo, which is a very trusted brand for quality products.

I know Brembo's are a good "name" but after having not one but two cars this year come back within 6 months due to warp...pass, cheap $$$ or not there is a reason.

Improperly torqued wheels or improperly bedded pad and brake combo. Other than that, I don't see brembo blanks, slots or even drilled rotors warping in 6 months.

Just my opinion.

You sure it wasn't just pad buildup on the disc? I find it REALLY hard to believe they actually warped because I ran cheapy china-made discs on my E30 before (albeit I slotted them on the milling machine) and they never gave me problems at all, no matter how hard I ran them. I currently run the same cheap discs on my 2002... but have yet to pound the crap out of it.

Haters gonna hate...just saying.

Farintosh 04-28-2012 01:29 PM

Just got my e30 and need some new rotors. Is it worth investing in these for a daily driver, or should I be going with something else? Thanks!
