If I was gonna try them again on an e60 I would suggest the slotted version to help with heat build up. I should add that I have used these rotors more successfully on other model BMWs and I do believe the e60/e61 brake design is undersized.
That's odd. I went with the Centric rotors with E-Coating and they've been great. No warping, no rust, and seem to be an excellent value. I'd buy them again in a heartbeat.
