I've been thinking about these myself, especially now that I've got a front StopTech BBK waiting to be installed. I was contemplating buying the rotors for the rear, and perhaps painting the rear calipers to match the front, thus have a 'complete' look (until I decide to get Stoptechs for the rear one day).slowcar said:Does anyone have bavarian cross drilled rotors . They look nice and would cool a bit better. Bavarian also makes coil springs has anyone tried these????
Thanks for helpmikeoski said:I bought the OEM Euro floating rotors for the front and rear and am quite happy from Turner. They were cheaper than the heavier US ones from the local dealer. I also have the Euro brake ducts, Axis Ultimate pads and StopTech SS lines. I have tracked the car twice with and w/o the Euro rotors. The Euro seemed to hold up much better throughout the day. I need to go with a high temp pad in front though as the Ulimates were smoking after each run.
Any idea how much lighter the floating ones are than the U.S. ones? I'm likely going to these this time around. I only wish they were cross-drilled like the OEM floating rotors for the M3. The holes won't make them perform any better, probably worse, but they'd look cool. ouich What's nice about the floating design is that there's less heat transfer to the bearings, so the bearings should live longer.They were cheaper than the heavier US ones from the local dealer.
I cannot see a M5 rotor for a 2000 on buybrakes.com does another model fit?MEnthusiast said:I believe cross drilled rotors look the coolest, but I think in many applications slotted rotors actually work the best:
Right, but if the Euro floating rotors was the best option, Dave would probably say so. Back when I was looking for drilled rotor options, Dave knew what/where to get them. I ended up cancelling the order and going with the Brembo BBK, but Dave stays "on top" of what's out there, and at least in my experience, he won't sell you something if it's not in your best interests. That's very refreshing, coming from a reseller.Need4Spd said:Yes, I agree. I don't know that he sells the OEM floating rotors though.
