Hey guys,
Well unfortunately it's that time of the year when you least need something to go bad but it still does :(.

Basically my left rear Caliper is sticking and ****ed up my rear rotor but they need to be changed soon anways. But my real question is what should I get? I mean in terms of just replace what needs to be replaced or should I upgrade slightly. I'm not talking about a BBK or anything since I really don't want the extra expensive of buying bigger winter rims.

Ok enough beating around the bush. I was looking at the Stoptech II kit from Modbargains. I just want to know is it really worth the upgrade? If it helps I hope to track my car sometime but nothing serious.

Thanks for the input guys!!!

Fix your caliper first. After that, the Stoptech kit is worth the extra ~$300 over getting OEM parts IMO. But you should know that the cross drilled rotors are more noisy and they eat pads faster.

axis deluxe pads and oem brembo rotors from oembimmerparts.com :thumbsup:
Wait a Minute.....

I didnt know the OEM rotors were made by BREMBO...????

from OEMBIMMERPARTS:


BREMBO stock brake rotors are original equipment on almost all BMW's. Sold each.



Is this true?

My Caliper will be replaced when I get my brakes done. I wouldn't do the brakes first to find out I had to buy a another new rotor because I didn't so the Caliper first. Also I'm not going cross drilled but slotted.
