Hi guys,
how are you? I`m a new here, so sorry for a flame.
I currently have a 1994 540i, and my brakes are raising hell. I bought some aftermarket Brembo brake rotors on eBay half a year ago, but it`s just not working for me - they vibrate as hell, and yesterday I barelly made it to the shop - with Highway Patrol guys escortin me... LOL... What brake rotors should I choose? I don`t needn a cheap sh..t no more... Any ideas? Thanks a lot....

I think that factory BMW brakes are just fine however, this is the first time I have heard anything bad about Brembo....well actually first time I have heard anything bad about any Brembo product. Are you sure they are not fake, and were they installed properly?

i was about to suggest brembo when i read the title of the topic... i guess not.

BavAuto performance rotors $119 - 370 per pair depending what you want.
