i just installed a set of ate power slotted brake rotors and man what difference, i had a more crisp stop and not a hint of brake fade. something to invest in for sure if you wanna do your brakes.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

The Ate Powerdiscs are almost as cheap as the OE rotors. I got em too and they have definitely have been trouble free for me. B)

Not the OE rotors.

And Dragon, they only make Powerdiscs for the front.

Believe me, they only make them for the front you doof. If you really think they make them for the rear, then SHOW ME.

More than 60% of the braking is done in the front, so why does it not make sense to make them for the front only?

Hmmm... those prices seem kinda off to me.

Ive found Powerdiscs for the E36 for $51 a pair (US) while the cheapest OE rotors were $44...
