Yes, cross drilled and also they appear to be a floating rotor, they are 3lbs lighter(fronts only) and also cool better than normal rotors. But they are same sized unlike e46 m3 bmw performance ones, which are better than stock m3 rotors.

Part#s are: 34112282871 & 34112282872 for the fronts.
They are not listed on realoem.com

But you can find them here by part#:
getbmwparts.com

or here:
http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/34112282871/
or bmw usa(canads doesn't have anything listed):

Cool, will definitely keep in mind. Just replaced front rotors 2 weeks ago, so I'll see about $$$ before proceeding..... thanks for the info though. Would defintely like the look.... and additional braking power in the wet.

The BMW USA site indicates it does require 18" wheels. That's what I was told when I looked into it at my parts dept. I run 18s for the summer but have 17" winters. I see that it also needs a caliper swap which I wasn't told by my parts guy, we didn't get that far in the conversation because I didn't want to run 18" winters and vetoed the idea after hearing about the rotors. They'd be awesome brakes though!

Thats my main concern is that I currently run 17" winters (which I'm considering changing in the fall)..... Just need to be certain that's what I want to do before comitting to the larger rotors...... Thanks for all the details!

Hey guys; Been awhile since I updated this thread. Been a few changes since the spring.....

Here's a few pictures of some of the changes:

New DCT shifter and custom shift boot. Matching e-brake and armrest covers need to be installed....also, going to be cutting it down about 1" as well to lowrr shifter somewhat.




Finally got around to wrapping myself a new set using red kevlar/black CF composite cloth... Love the new look; completely transforms the car IMO







Carbon Fibre cabin air filter cover and ECU cover....






Currently working on engine covers and next on list is seat surrounds and possibly seat backs......
