They look nice. Wonder how they compare to some of the other options. $400 seems fair but on the pricey side

Well I'll let you know. I found a set online for 338. Was going to do the bmw perf rotors but these were 50 bucks cheaper. I don't like crossdrilled rotors as they have a tendency to get spider cracks around the holes.

I think this is the best deal I have seen for the drilled Performance rotors... $247 for the pair!

They make the rears...I ordered a full set from autoanything.com...worked out to 125 a rotor with ordering all 4 including shipping. i'll take pics and let you guys know how they go. The reviews i read about them seemed to show they lower brake temps quite a bit. Don't know how true that is, but it'll be fun finding out

Got the rears rotors in yesterday....the front ones are apparently back ordered a bit and won't be shipped out till weds or thurs...either way they look and feel fantastic out of the box. Can't wait to get the fronts and get them all on the car.

Did you ever get the full set? How are they working for you? I'm eyeing a set of these now (well the sport ones).

Thanks

I did get the full set. For street use they're fine and have the "cool" look. Didn't really notice anything at the track different from the regular rotors. They seem to be decent rotors for the price

If they perform well at the track "no fade" or little fade then they're worth the money. I have local distributor that can get them for me, I know these things work great on trucks and SUVs which is their main market. But as long as you didn't hit anything at the track, then they work

Thanks

No close up pics of them mounted I got mine off auto anything . com. just searched for them on there. They had the best price, but sadly, shipping took forever. I think it worked out to sub $500 bucks for all 4 rotors including shipping.

I went to Autoanything.com and found only the front but not the rear? Please let me know how to order the rear rotor too. Thanks.

I just inputed my vehicle. Then went to brake rotors and pads, selected the ebc ultimax rotors and it showed both front and rear.

http://www.autoanything.com/brakes/6...0A3320186.aspx

338.95 for the fronts and 156.95 for the rears

Are these truly directional, i.e. a dedicated left rotor for the left side, unlike the BMW Performance ones that can be used on either side, Anyone? Fran

In the market for either these or the BMW Performance ones...which upon more research seems a like a misnomer

Why misnomer? True they're not 2 piece racing rotors but they are 3 lbs lighter and offer a slotted design. Def an upgrade FWIW

I was looking at the ultimax or ebc sport rotors because I don't like drilled rotors.. I prefer the slotted design, and the ebc sport are dimpled and slotted, so same concept but applied differently.

The performance one's are def an upgrade, but I think for the price EBC is a better way to go.. They may not be fully popular on this platform, but they've been doing brakes well for a while.

Yeah, the drilled portion is essentially what I was getting at...but its a good point, the BMWP are still an upgrade but may lean more on the cosmetic side.

Are the ultimax or ebc's lighter than stock too?
