be careful, not all Brembo's are stamped from Italy. some are made elsewhere and are NOT the same. :-) hence the price difference..

For DD you can use just regular, non slotted or drilled, rotors. A pair of rotors from Auto Spot will set you up about 30.00...

...the brake pads, this is where you can get things going for your city driving style...myself I just have regular pads, enough for city driving, they bite well and dust is almost non-existent.

I've had these rotors on my car for over a year. Daily driven and seen track use. 4 times. Half way through my second set of pads with these rotors. I have nothing bad to say about the rotors. still straight and true. I will buy these rotors again, no doubt.


Im pretty sure there stamped saying made in italy but not sure. Can't remember.

Grand Total (USD): $154.27

Not bad for a pair, but keep in mind we live in Canada.

Ya good price, I think tirerack covers or includes tax and ups rape charges in the price.

On the other hand I can offer Zimmerman drilled rotors for 153.27 delivered

Cripes, cross drilled zimmermans are only $58 cnd each with free shipping here:

edit: didn't mean Cripes @ you bimmerboys, I didn't even see your post until I posted mine. $160 is a great price, $120 is downright weird.
