R1 Concepts rotors

Has anyone tried R1Concepts drilled and slotted rotors on their 328i?

I had some on my infiniti and they were great but I sold the car about 6 thousand miles after I installed them and my experience has been that any rotor is fine for 10k or so.

Would like to know how the drilled and slotted R1 rotors perform as well.

Would just cross drilled vs drilled and slotted be better?

My friend just bought R1 Concept Slotted Rotors for his E90 328 along with Stop Tech Pads, he hasn't installed them yet but they look good.

Blank rotors are the best for DD, X-Drilled vs X-Drilled Slotted Rotors don't have that big of a difference unless you track the car and other then more surface for the pads to bite. If you want the looks and have extra money to spend then go with the X-Drilled Slotted.

Thanks. Is there any advantage for R1 concept premium rotors over the E-line. I'm looking to do 335i front brakes and 328i rear (don't want to do the shoe mod). Is it worth spending $430 vs $266?

My Premium rotors are stronger than my E-lines and has a black e-coat applied on the center hub, inner vane structure, and outer rim of the rotor for rust protection. My E-line are dipped entirely in silver zinc. Premium rotors have better air flow because they are built with a 50/50 center split vane structure design (some also comes curved and columned) for efficient air distribution to try to eliminate hear spots.

We have recently just became vendors on the site. Feel free to PM me if you need help and I'll be glad to help you out.
