Want performance rotors with out the BBK price? Check these guys out!

A few days ago I was looking online for some new rotors and my friend mentioned a place called 88 rotors. Some of you locals and others who go to racing events might know them. Any who, I called them up and what do you know, they were in stock with all of the rotors! When I arrived, the desk worker didn't waste anytime going into the stock room and getting the rotors for me. The price for front and rears only costed me 350 w/ tax! The best thing for you non-locals is they do FREE SHIPPING! My overall experience with these guys was great! It took me under 5 minutes to get in and out with what I needed . I took longer to buy chips and a soda at the local liquor store than I did here! Here's some more info on the place:

Store Address:
10641 Rush Street
South El Monte, CA 91733-3431

Toll Free: 888-ROTORS-88
Local: 626-442-3150
Fax: 626-442-0616
Web: www.88Rotors.com

Store Hours:
Monday - Friday: 10:00AM - 5:00PM
Saturday: 10:00AM - 4:00PM

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

Rotors aren't yet broken in completely but I notice a major decrease in brake dust! The stopping power is already prevailing over the stocks. I'm in the process of bedding everything in perfectly and I notice a more stiffer feel and security during stopping and brake jabbing. Will review more once they're completely perfect!

I got the drilled and slotted 328I rotors, they're a bit bigger than the stocks and stop on a dime now! I even noticed a bigger difference in using my emergency/ parking brake

I finally broke them in. I noticed a 10 ft shorter stopping distance and a big improvement in brake dust. There's almost no brake dust after a week of regular driving. I'm going to the canyons tonight to put them to the real test and see how they handle. I noticed also that my brake pedal is a lot more sensative and I only need to blip the brakes instead of completely covering the pedal. More later when I test them out

P.s. I fully bedded my pads and rotors before getting to what I call "testing"
Feel free to ask if needed btw free ground shipping with any order!

I first thought of stop tech and brembo or calling wilwood nd dropping a few dollars for a custom system but after my buddy told me that 88rotors has cheap performance rotors, ill keep updating more and more. Btw they handled heavenly in the canyons! It was so powerful that I only had to blip the brakes before hitting corners. I notice a super smooth ride and a better pedal feel under pressure and hard driving

I actually bought my pads from tischer and the rotors only from 88rotors. I spent a total of roughly 500 for rear brake pads, new parking shoes, a new sensor, and new front and rear rotors

You know that brake dust comes primarily from the pads, not rotors, right?

Yes I know, but the rotors seem to throw the brake dust in the wheel well instead of ouside towards my entire car

So you brought the Brake Pad and Senors from Tischer and Rotors from 88rotors. You got the Rotor for 350 and Pads, and Sensor for 500. Does that mean your Brake job was 850 total?

Oh no, lol
I spent a total of 350 for the rotors and I think 160 for tischer parts

No problem! I only want to mention that the pads don't cover the entire rotor surface for some odd reason. I still notice a huge braking improvment so for anyone planning on purchasing, just note that they don't cover the entire rotor face as stock rotors would
