330i rotors are also more expensive because they are a bit bigger. So these prices really won't apply to you. At least the ones I posted will not.

So, when you get the Honda, will you replace the rotors when you replace your brake pads?

$9.50 an hour is Honda and Nissan range. Nothing wrong with that. We all start somewhere.

I would pick up a used RSX.

How long have you had your car? A month?

There's a big difference between getting a BMW in the driveway, and maintaining it long term.

If i need to replace pads, i will replace the rotors as well. If my budget looks good, probably will get slotted rotors.

If it comes to anyone asking the question Honda vs BMW, the only answer is Honda (for that person). If they do not understand the difference and are comparing these two cars, then clearly the Honda should win in their mind. Good luck with your Honda.
