I was thinking either EBC or DBA made dimpled/slotted rotors for the 3...try autoanything.com also.

I bought brake performance because it comes with lifetime warranty. Had them installed by an Indy BMW specialist. Followed the bedding procedure that was included in the box they shipped the rotors and pads in. Brakes screeched. Mechanic said the squeak might go away after a month. Squeak never went away and rotors warped. Called brake performance to discuss issue and use lifetime warranty. They said warranty voided because I "must" have followed break in procedure incorrectly.

How would they know what I did over the phone.

Please avoid!

True. I have their dash slotted rotors on the front of mine with CC pads. Good combo.

OP, let me know if you have a brand or size preference. Is this for an OEM set-up or aftermarket? We can source them for you, just let me know.

Looking for an oem setup dimpled / slotted with zinc coating. Preferable in a sliver or black (ie not like ebc coating)

Yuup.....same issue but I didn't try to replace them under warranty... Great price but they didn't hold up...changed to better quality.

Do I see this?

You should, if not already done, write them up at Yelp.

May I also recommend small claims? After a judgement's awarded, contact BBB with the info & revisit Yelp.

Hey, keep us posted....

Dimpled, drilled and slotted all look Sick. But big warning get the slots or drills coated in the black paint. Otherwise rust and crud builds up and they just look like crap.

That's why I went with the Geomet rotors from ECS. The coating keeps the hub and the holes from rusting.

I bought StopTech cross drilled and slotted rotors from http://www.carpartkings.com/


They had the best price I could find online at the time...

I really like the looks and pricing and coating of the Centric Rotors




once you learn the part number for each location you can quickly google and find the prices buried on lots of websites. Last time I found a good price then got a price match from a major brand retailer site.


These are only $77.00 a piece not bad for slotted, dimpled and painted.
127.34080R
127.34080L


They do have a nice way to search and decent pricing

take a look at the ebay rotors...sounds crazy, but I took a leap of faith because of other forum reviews and I'm really impressed! Set of 4 rotors and ceramic pads for under $300.
