You seem to be taking this way too personally and seriously.

IMO a typo here and there is no big deal...repeating the wrong word (spelled correctly) three times is kinda odd.

whatever

If you are trying to figure out what rotors to buy, one criteria is buying the rotors that don't rust after 2 months.

All rotors rust at the hub . That is why I bought blacked coated rotors from Brakenetic or StopTech. They do not rust at the hub and look fugly.

I bought OE rotors for the X5 and theyíre not rusted. Just dirtier. Those have over 50k miles on them and driven year round, including snow.

Isnít it more humidity and wet conditions that would cause the rust?

Salt certainly helps the rust, but humidity is all that's needed.

I just ordered Zimmerman rotors and Textar pads from FCP. I chose this over the Akebono due to the initial brake bite complaints.
