Don't do it, waste of time. They can't be resurfaced so you have to buy new rotors every time they warp. You'll never see the benefits on the street, and everyone who actually knows what they're for will be laughing at you for buying them, because they have zero benefits unless you're tracking it. I assume you don't track yours.

No I don't. But I did find a site that has lifetime warranty on the rotors.

Pic request: drilled and slotted rotors

The OEM euro M3 rotors are drilled. Floating 2 of units. Same with the ZCP/CSL ones.

I have the euro ones on mine. Love how they look. Not the best pics tho.

Cool, then do it for sure if you like the look. Never heard of a company doing that before. Is 'life' defined anywhere in that guarantee?

Drilled, that's because BMW performance rotors are only drilled
