01 740i - Brake rotors / pads

'01 740 Sport with 95K: My front brake rotors are shot. Just recently had the rotors turned and pads replaced...very smooth for a couple of weeks and now they are warped again. Any recommendations on best, longest lasting brake rotor brand and/or style available after market? Should I just replace with OEM?

The oem ATE/Balos we sell have served our customers well, That being said if your rotors were turned true and there was no vibration after having them turned it is very unlikely that they warped just weeks later. I would be either looking at worn out tension strut bushings which cause a vibration/wobble when braking.

I'm pretty sure its the rotors and not the strut bushings. I've had the car for a little while now, and am pretty familiar with rotor vibrations. Anyone else have any aftermarket (upgrade) recommendations on rotors?
