I run cross drilled Zimmerman rotors with hawk ceramic
Initial bite not as good as oem but brake fade is gone.
Best part also is very little brake dust compared to oem, so that makes it mirth worth it IMO
I will say thoug if you hit the pedal harder it stops great. But I know what you mean by the oem bite
Got this setup from bimmersport I think in early spring last year
