IMHO, a rotor is a rotor.

But don't believe me. Read this:
- What's the real difference between drilled, slotted, and solid rotors (1) & what's the difference between various brands of solid rotors (1)

As for your pads, what is the cold/hot friction rating of the pads you have versus the factory pads versus what you're considering buying?
- What friction grade (e.g., EE, FF, EF, etc.) is recommended for your brake pads (1) (2)

See also:
- What street use brake pads (1) and rotors (1) and suppliers (1) (2) are most often recommended for your bimmer
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
