thais0n--those were my sentiments exactly. I was spending all this time looking for Brembo OEM replacements thinking stock is ALWAYS more expensive, but decided to go ahead and call around some dealerships anyway, namely Pacific and Circle.

After calling Pacific (818-552-4750) the first time, I thought I had heard wrong so I called back a day later and got another guy to look up the prices--they were right on. (My local dealership pisses me off--tried charging me $288.76 for the 4 rotors!)

FYI--you can get all four rotors, pads and the two sensors from Pacific for $233.64 + shipping. That blows everything else I've seen away. I may, however, go with Hawk HPS pads since I would love to cut down on my brake dust. I just don't have the time to clean my wheels every week. (Look for my other post regarding stock rotors + Hawk HPS pads for that topic.)

Stop-Tech Stage 2 kit includes good rotors, good pads,
ss hoses for all four wheels and they also throw in 3 btls.
of Motul brake fluid all for $800. Pads are tested to work with specific rotors and the inexperienced who mix and match may
end up disappointed. If not this or similar route stay with stock or OEM (TUV apprived) substitutes. You get what you pay for
and your brake system is not he place to pinch pennies.

I can go with OEM, but do they sell crossed drilled OEM rotors? I had my 330CI for only 8 months and my rotors are warped. It might be caused by the wheel upgrades and replacement brake pads???

not to hi-jack , but how would having drilled rotors help your warping problem?

anyways, I was looking for some drilled rotors too cuz they're , but brembo's OEM replacement drilled rotors (btw, see tirerack.com for pics) have a gold finish.
Silever finish would be much better.

I'm looking in replacing them. Something happened, and my OEM rotors are warped. I need to get replacements.
