Just wondering why cross drilled. They really don't do anything, other than for looks. And can resultin cracking of the rotors and fasterpad wear, but not as bad as slotted.

Do you have a ZCP already or a standard M3? If the later then you might want to check out our new ECS GEOMET Rotors (found HERE) for the E46 M3.

They brake better

I really fill the difference and I don't get brake dust on my rims is like 99% less dust. The stock rotors last about one and half brake pads so is about the same with the ones I got for alot less.

I have the zcp brake upgrade on my car and it is amazing. I did not know when i order that it is bigger rotor than regular so it like you have big brake kit upgrade. It feel a lot stronger than stock and I can lock up the brake almost any time I want. The stock brake barely lock it. You will love it

I didn't get bigger rotors and they still brake alot better not like the bigger ones but still. If you do go with bigger rotors you also will need to change the calipers.

No need to change caliber, the ZCP kit come included with bracket to move the caliber out further to fit bigger rotor.

As long as it's an upgrade kit not just the rotors. The ZCP/CSL carriers relocate the caliper so it can handle the 345mmx28mm rotor.

that is correct, you have to buy the upgrade kit to receive the bracket . Also the ZCP rotor is floating 2 piece rotor which will help reduced weight and run cooler than stock. Much better than stock and brake fade is almost nonexistence . Stock rotor is 1 piece.

I find brake fade to be non-existant with the stock setup. Even with street pads driven reasonably sanely on the track.
