Rotors

Hello everyone, I'm looking for some advice. I am putting some HRE 545's on my 07' 328i. I want to put nicer rotors on as the 545's have more of an open face, and I have the original ones on now. Anybody have experience with "Adam's Rotors"? Any other suggestions? All advice is appreciated.

Slotted or cross drilled rotors are more for appearance, there are many options out there, make sure you get a brand with coating that prevents rust, since they will be more noticeable. Most good brands with have this coating. I went with Zimmerman rotors with the zinc coating when I replaced mine. They are all metal and will relatively work the same!

Just did Stoptech drilled rotors and dustless pads on mine and a buddy's E92. About $475 from tire rack with 2 cans of ATE Dot 4. Has paint coating which is better than Zinc coating and unlike Zimmerman the vanes are coated using an electroplating process, preventing rust from forming in more areas especially in our winter climate. Also, they came with the holes set in a directional pattern so left and right rotors are different, but the holes show the same direction on either side of the car (nice anal feature).
I do Have Zimmerman drilled on my 5 er and they are just starting to show rust after 3 years but have been solid compared to oem off the shelf. Hit me with a pm if u want to see pics with them behind 18" VRM's. cheers g
