search for zcp rotors in the US, or in the parts lookups simply select the competition package. Can also look for rotors off a Z4M.

Easy to find.

Here are the rotors set: http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-24...n-package.aspx

But I think you need the full upgrade kit with the calipers because I believe the calipers are bigger on the zcp brake upgrade: http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-22...de-e46-m3.aspx

Prepare to pay at least $3,200 for bigger brake upgrades.. brakes don't come cheap

The calipers are exactly the same size - there is a bracket that you will need to accommodate for the 1" bigger ZCP rotors, that is all (front only).

I personally wouldn't look for a used set - with the cross drilled rotors they are prone to spider cracking from hole to hole(normal with cross drilled rotors). In truth, the cross drilled rotors don't actually 'do' anything and are more for looks nowadays than actual performance. With the brake pad technology evolving over the years, the gas release from pads under braking events is almost non-existent. When you have a drilled rotor you are actually decreasing surface area for the heat to disperse across and the rotor can actually get hotter than a standard blank or slotted rotor.


EDIT: Oh and by the way - I have a set of 365mm Alcon's (complete with rotors/calipers/pads/lines just as you would purchase direct from Alcon) with less than 500 street miles on them for sale - asking $2,200 or the best reasonable offer.

Is that front and back? Why are you selling them after only 500 miles?

Front only (which retails for $4,184). Selling them because the car is close to being done with it's race preparation and have a 4 wheel set of AP Racing calipers with Stasis rotors and Cobalt Friction Technology brake pads - as more braking will be needed for the race car, the Alcon's are more than adequate for street driving and track days.

Yes, but the parts like Brakes, Bumpers, roof, trunk, center console, etc are being made and are available. Many people like to put the best stuff they can on their cars, and some people think OEM is better than aftermarket.

Don't get so bent out of shape.

No you don't.

The CSL used the same brakes as the competition pkg M3 and the Z4M in the US. Look up brakes for those cars. The rotors are the SAME PART NUMBER. It's like saying you need a CSL headlight bulb...it's the same damn part.

You're making a simple task into a difficult one.

This took me 3 seconds:

34112282445 LF rotor
34112282446 RF rotor


Here is the fitment cross reference for the brake rotor: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/partxref.do?part=34112282446

Hope that helps you - as the other stated, it not only fits the "CSL" but it fits Z4M's and ZCP M3's.

I have the CSL/ZCP/Competition/Z4M rotors avaible HERE. If you're looking to retro fit these rotors to your car, I have a kit avaible which relocates your caliper to work properly with the CSL rotors, the kit can be found HERE.

If you need CSL rotors...you'll need other items as well to go along with it.

He wants ZCP rotors but not willing to dish out the money for a new set. He wants to try used ones to see how he likes them. Someone let him borrow your rotors lol.

ZCP/CSL rotors work on ZCP equipped vehicles...

CSL rotors suck and they are a gimmick, slotted rotors are the best for the track and thats it.

They are a show toy...
ZCP/CSL brake systems work best for the ZCP and CSL m3s, furthermore, the slotted rotor is best hands down.

I'm sorry but what's the gimmick again? Are you saying they have no benefits?
