Brakes

So I have a connection within my family that will allow me to get brembo parts for my e36 for cheaper than most places have them. All I need are the part numbers for them and I can get them.

The problem is I am having a hell of a time finding front and rear cross-drilled rotors online that provide a part number and that will fit a 1997 328i. I'm just looking to get a normal set, silver in colour. Nothing too flashy.

I have checked autopartsway.ca, bimmerspecialist.com and pelicanparts.com and have found nothing. Also, does anyone know if brembo makes calipers that can replace the 328 stock ones without having to overhaul the entire brake system for a bunch of money?

Any help would be appreciated.

Does no one know of any websites that would possibly sell brembo cross-drilled rotors where I can figure out a part number? Even just post up websites that sell parts and I can do the work and look if they have them.

I happened to find an ad on Kijiji where I picked up e30 front cross drilled rotors from Brembo. but I hear there are different country manuf. Italy the origin, china as well. I don't know if e-bay has them or not but you can check there.
Someone on here will eventually reply with a place you can source them I would imagine.

Thanks for the help guys. importrp.com has some with part numbers which should hopefully work, same with the brembo catalogue.

If you have your mind set on cross-drilled, you can drill blank rotors at a bike shop that I used years ago. I don't remember the price, but it's not cheap.

I'm not a fan of cross-drilled rotors, though, because mine eventually cracked between the holes (but that was from heavy track use).

Well I'm in the market for a new set of rotors and have always liked the look of cross-drilled ones. Since I can get them cheaper than normal, I figured I might as well spend for the nicer ones.

I don't really have to worry about cracks or anything like that since I'm not really a big track guy by any means. This is more of a cosmetic change than anything else. lol
