    There are differing opinions on installing slotted rotors. Should the slots on the outside of the rotor contact the pads first or vice versa? Is this the correct direction of installing the slotted rotor? This is the pic of the driver front side.

    A while back, I replaced the corroding front rotors on my 158k V6. The biggest difference I've noticed is that braking under wet conditions is improved since I don't feel that floating feeling as the rotors dry when brakes are first applied. I can't say it stops quicker but when the brakes are...

    Hey guys, proud 2001 B5.5 owner here. I've been a member for a while, just sort of disappeared over the past few months as I haven't had much of a reason to come on here (with school and many other things going on and no car problems, knock on wood). Anyways, when I got my B5.5 about a year...

    I opened the box to look at one of the rotors I just got and inside the rotor between the two outside faces of the rotor I noticed that a flat spot or trough had been ground down. Is this standard for their rotors? I’m just hoping that it is and won’t throw the rotor out of balance.

    I was talking with a friend who is contemplating fitting slotted discs on his older 5 series BMW. the thought came up: do slotted rotors make any noise when operating? IOW, can you hear'em at all, even under heavy braking?

    Is it possible to feel the brake pads pass over the slots of slotted brake rotors? What can I do to reduce the noise/vibration? Here is the background... Last summer I installed slotted rotors that a I bought through the S Klass group buy. I used PBR/Axxis Deluxe Plus pads. This is my...

    How long do you think Brembo cross drilled/slotted rotors "should" last?? I don't race but I do have a slightly spirted foot. I got a really good deal on them and wanted them for extra stopping power...just installed today....very stoked.

    If I uprgrade to Brembo slotted rotors for my rears, will they last longer than the OE crap rotors? I sit in traffic a lot so my rears go quickly. I plan on changing them myself (pleeb). I am wondering if there is any way around changing rotors and pads each and every time. Could there be a...
