128i Stock Front Brake Rotor Replacement

Itís time for me to get my front brakes replaced, but iím doubting the ventilated front brakes that were on the car when I got it a little less than a year ago are OEM. I donít believe my car has the sports package, or any special options like that, is there any way to tell if my brake rotors are OEM? I plan on calling my local dealers parts department and seeing if they can check my vin number to find the correct rotor part number, but that will have to be this coming monday, if there are any better ways to check, or any opinions on better than factory brake components, please let me know!

They are not factory rotors. Likely eBay specials. Going with standard OEM rotors will perform better than those.

Also, save yourself a phone call. Realoem can give you all the part numbers you need.

I use ATE rotors and Jurid pads. They are pretty much identical to OEM for a lot less $$$. ATE pretty much makes OEM for a lot of German makers.

Had a reputable Indy view dealer video and they shockingly said it's not an urgent concern as there is no play and holding grease. I guess I'll keep an eye on it and change them out at a later time. Thanks for all the offers, opinions and advise, much appreciated
