I bought a new akebono euro pads and sensors, I want to hold off an do rotors too.. any good rotor suggestions?
Or a cheap BBK? and will E90 M3 brakes work?
Apparently pads are due in 1600miles

Regular or slotted?
Depends if you track at all or not

Is slotted more for track use, what if you get slotted and aren't on the track?

i purchased callahan performance cross drilled+slotted rotors with matching pads and i have 0 complaints.
price was great and much smoother braking. stopping power did not increase being that the same psi of fluid is being applied.
..definatley look around at rotor options there are plenty of designs out there that can add curb appeal to your vehicle just make sure to get the appropriate pads if buying drilled and/or slotted rotors.

Aren't those the cheap eBay rotors that are like $230 for all four corners shipped? Have you done actual "driving" on them under hard braking? Curious how they hold up

well i wouldnt say their cheap,great quality and fair pricing. and yes they are road tested every wkend lol..
But callahan is far from the only option out there i was just chiming in saying drilled and slotted rotors are great for our cars i.e stance appeal and a minor increase in softer braking. if plain ole rotors are more your style theres nothing wrong there either. Sorry i couldnt give experience of an actual BBK upgrade. good luck to you
