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?

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.

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!
