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.

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. :thumbs B)

Not the OE rotors.

And Dragon, they only make Powerdiscs for the front.

(sorry about the double post) :confused

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? :blink:

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...
