Fourth set this year... yep warped. Finally got the euro floats - no problems (YET). In addition, I think my main problem (causing the warping on 2 of the sets) was the EBC Green Pads. DON'T GET THOSE! I replaced with Pagid Sport pads - softer than Orange track compound but still with bite. Yes they're dirty, but you know what? Who cares! Wash the wheels every week and you'll be fine.

They don't squeal like pigs (EBCs and BMW OEMs did) and supposedly they won't warp the rotors.

In addition to getting the euro floating rotors this time, I also got the 'frozen' ones. Time will only tell if this $55 per rotor premium is worth it. Heck, all the Nascar and other racing drivers swear by the process.

Good Luck.


P.S. Frozen Rotors from HMS Motorsport (or go to

what are the best rotors and pads out there? tried searchin a bit in archives... but not much help... wat experiences do you have with various ones? IE wear, squealing, performance... thanks!
