Im always very leary of Ebay, but I have to admit I've some great successes there in the relm of finding hard to find items.

I've never thought of buying automotive/motorcycle parts (outside of plastics for my bikes on ebay)

Then I stumbled onto Slotted/Drill Brembo's for my E36 (set of 4!)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33564

Too good to be true?

My brakes are about due, and eventhough I have no complaints with them I've been thinking of upgrading a bit (probably won't do new Calipers just yet though)

Don't trust it. One of the user feed backs says "The rotors I received are not Brembos." Thats should answer your question.

feedback looks decent, save for a few comments.

It's possible they sent the wrong kind also, instead of sending X brand when they are said Brembos.

I saw that too. Checking some of the other reviews I saw that he also sells rotors that are not Brembos (he does advertise them properly as such)

I was about to buy them from Bav Auto (bout $400 for a set of 4.)
Let me sleep on it

I am very sure those are Brembo's. I sell Brembo's and I have them on my car. first, brembo makes either drilled or slotted rotors not both. Second, those are anodized gold, not bare metal. Third, they ship theirs as pairs in white boxes. Last, it's too cheap.

Meh, I am totally against ebay jazz...but just to let you know, drilled rotors kick ass, I just got some and I've noticed a difference.

I have some slotted rotors that the person who owned the car before me put on. Ive never seen the pattern of the slots before, its is almost like a daisy petal that criss-crosses over the rotor, like two ovals overlapping at the narrow points.

Odd...

At least the guy who installed them worked as a BMW repair tech.

Point taken there, and thanks for taking interest.

I did a little research and YES it appears that Brembo's come in the box in the ebay sellers picture(red), but NO I could not find Drilled and Slotted Rotors for an E36 that were produced by Brembo!!!! Maybe I didn't look hard enough...........

BTW... since we are on the topic. Which is the preferable way to go? Drilled or Slotted? The car doesn't see track days (actually I've never really driven the car hard enough to really feel the need for improved braking), but since Im there I might as well spend a few extra $$$$ for those few times I do want to .

I've got myself a couple of sportbikes that wets most of my appetite for twisties (but they are still fun with the Bimmer too )
