Default Direct Drive Rotors

One of the best upgrades you can do for this car.
The stock rotors warp so easily.
Upgraded to DDR. Outstanding. True floating rotors.

Also had these on my E46 M3 and loved 'em.

I have not warped my stock rotors yet. But my car is a street car.

Bimmerworld and other shops sell the expensive Performance Friction DD rotors. ECS also sells a hatted rotor for less. And the factory rotors are semi two piece.

Short of a BBK, PFC DD rotors are the best there are. Have them all around on my E46M3. Have tracked them and they stand up better than anything I've used. Had others on the E90M3 that didn't hold up and I'll be going to these once the ones I have wear out.

True.

Just hoping they make them for rears one day.
