went with callahan rotors and pads

i purchased the callahan crossed drilled slotted rotors and ceramic pads and i must say they stop this massive car as well as the OEM ones. did numerous emergency stops and no brake fade at all!! and the best of all very very little brake dust. i installed them aover a month ago and they still stop GREAT!!!. i purchased these off ebay they are zinc coated for rust proofing. well worth the money $350.00 for 4 rotors, pads, and wear sensors.

Had purchased Callahan rotors to replace the warped rotors on my 545i about 1yr ago, I can also say they're excellent and definately worth it. Will be getting this same setup in a few months when it's time to replace brakes on my 7...

I installed the Callahan crossed drilled/slotted rotors and new pads on my 750i two months ago and they are working great, and I have noticed very little dust on the wheels. Bought some for the back also.
