Question some rotar question

My mechanic told me that my rotars are getting warn down to about where i should consider changing them this summer. I figure since you can see basicly the whole rotar in the summer when i have my 17s on that i might as well just get a nice set of drilled and slotted rotars. Can someone tell me what ones i should be looking at? Good prices? Links?Also how much is it gonna cost if i just get stock ones? Im assuming i can get some nice aftermarket ones for around stock price just cause the dealership robs me blind every time i go there. The car is a 95 318ti. Thanks alot guys.

I just purchased a complete set for my wifes 528iT for $255. That included 4 OEM rotors, 2 sets of pads, 2 brake pad wear indicators and some brake lubricant.

that store has the best prices I could find.

Cruzin, pretty funny we both purchased from the same vendor !!

that company is actually located about :45 minutes from my house, but the shipping cost was so cheap, $12, I just had them ship it !!

should be getting my set in a few days !!! I will let this post know how everything looks.

were you happy with the product and company?

well, this is cool! I bought my brake parts from the same people. The prices are right and no problems dealing with them or in delivery. A third vote for FCP-Groton.

BOB, you might want to check with them about your 318TI. I had heard that the brakes are a little different from the regular 318. Don't know if this is true, wouldn't hurt to check.
