When it comes to discs, 'cheap' and 'good' rarely go together. Personal view, but as your brakes are a vital safety item, I would not compromise when replacing them...

If you can't afford to maintain it, why buy a BMW?

+1

Go OEM if you can't afford better...
Keep the cost down by doing it yourself on changing pads and discs.

As above look for the discount code and buy the pagid ones!

Jurid are the oem manufacturer of brake consumables for the E9x. Check out Motormec. Got a pair of rear discs for £55 inc del. Front are about £85 for a pair iirc.

Double check the OEM part number in this listing with what RealOEM says your car needs.

I know is cheap and good most times is not good, but when you buying BMW you will expect right materials used from manufactory, but when discs used from plastic.

Any of the OE replacement discs from a reputable maker like Pagid etc will be absolutely fine, no need to pay rip off BMW prices for discs when they are probably made in China too.

eurocarparts.com is the best bet IMO.

Also you need to change pads with the discs and get new wear sensors.

When you get slight brake judder it can be just pad transfer build up. To resolve this it requires 3 heavy high speed stops and this will solve the problem in most cases.

I will try this weekend. Two knights ago I was rushing to hospital and I have really heavy braking it brake it without problem, but if I brake slowly than I got that on my steering wheel.
But anyway is best to change it because I own this car for less than one year and I found out more cheap Chinese part on BMW where it's says made in Germany, but is not.
By EU law part can be made in any country but if packing was in Germany than you can put stamp is made in Germany.
