Front And Rear Cross Drilled/Slotted Rotor GB!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright guys. I've been talking to IROTORS about setting up a GB and they gave me the thumbs up. They want a count on how many people are willing to go down on this GB. When they know how many people are in the GB they will determine the GB price. The price on they sell these for on EBAY is $400 for front and rear cross drilled/slotted rotors. So you should expect to pay less. They are brembo blanks as well, and weight 18.35 lbs for the front and 17 lbs for the rear (which is basically stock). I think these guys are pretty legit and have good quality brakes. Their website is very professional and not sketchy. They sell rotors for Porsche's, NSX's, BMW's, Dodge Viper's, you name it they sell the rotor. They have sold over 4,000 rotors on ebay. Out of the 4,200 sold rotors on ebay they have only received 18 negative remarks (99.6% positive). Out of the 18 negative remarks two of them were because of warped rotors from the factory (the remaining 16 were due to wrong rotors or shipping). So out of 4,200 rotors, there were two bad batches of rotors, I say that is pretty darn good. I'm not looking for the best rotors out there because I barely track my car. I just want some nice looking rotors at a good price before I get my BBK. Let's start a list.

Here is their website and ebay link to the M3 rotors.

Except that cross drilled rotors crack. ANd E46 M3s are fast and heavy cars that put a lot of stress (and HEAT) on teh rotors, leading to cracking.

Yes they are more prone to crack, but that is only for people who seriously track their car. These rotors are for someone who wants a nice looking rotor that is half the price of the euro cross drilled rotors (thich are also prone to cracking). Here is a message a m3forum member stated about these brakes.

As I mentioned in a previous thread, I ran these on my G35 coupe six speed for 20K + miles with no problems and I tend to be pretty hard on brakes. You just need to be sure that the entire rotor is cadmium plated to include the holes and slots, otherwise they will rust. I went and picked the rotors up, nice facility but you could tell they are a fairly small operation but had great customer service.

My OEM floating cross-drilled rotors are holding up fine at 38k, but the floating feature with aluminum hats makes them superior to these, I believe.
