Opinons on cross-drilled rotors for my 2002 330ci convertible

I am looking for a set of good cross-drilled rotors. Where can I get something decent in Canada?

Is this set of iRotors good from ebay?

http://cgi.ebay.ca/BMW-330Ci-330i-E4...QQcmdZViewItem

Thanks.

Stoptech makes great cross drilled rotors, i'd steer clear of Ebay for such a crucial part.

just got a set of zimmerman crossdrilled, brembo's were a little more, decided to go the cheaper root with zimmerman's. One bad thing is they rust like crazy after even a car wash. But they do look nice.. heh

Thanks for all the opinions. Where can I pickup some cross-drilled Brembo rotors in GTA?

They're located in Scarborough.

Bought zinc-coated (anti-corrosion) cross-drilled Zimmerman rotors for my 2002 325xi. $450 to my door.

Brembo Rotors

I wouldn't get rotors from eBay. Brakes are such a crucial safety issue with cars and I would only get them from a trusted source.

In any case, Brembo X-drilled rotors aren't that expensive. BBK's are expensive because of the Calipers. That's where most of the money goes. But, boy do those monoblock red calipers look gooooooooood!

I've been trying to find a source for Brembo's in the GTA all week and no one has them...... A couple of places said they have been discontinued for my 04 330.

^Authentic Cross Drilled rotors Bembos can be hard to find, many companies simply drill Brembo blanks themselves. You should give Stoptech a shot, they're great, modbargains.com has great package pricing w/SS lines and dustless pads too.

Other Sources

You may have to go further afield to find the parts you're looking for.

It's a bit of a hassle, but, mailorder from the States will still get you the parts you are looking for. Even after you pay the duties, shipping, you're still getting a pretty good price. I order from Bavarian Autosport, Turner Motorsports and the Tire Rack on a semi regular basis and I've never had a problem. Those are the sites I would try first.

I agree, Stoptech makes a great product.

You can also source OEM Eurospec M3 rotors from Turner Motorsports. I believe the stock M3 Rotors are 12.7in in front, just like the 330Ci stock brakes and the Eurospec rotors are drilled. Turner Motorsports also carries BMW Motorsports Cross Drilled Rotors which are a direct replacement for the rotors on all 3 series vehicles. Check it out www.turnermotorsports.com
