M Performance discs 370mm replacement options

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey all.
I recently put the m performance 370mm discs and calipers on my e92 and they're great but I'd love to upgrade the discs at some stage
What are the best options ? I found the Zimmerman dimpled and slotted but are there any full floaters available ?

Yes I know, it's quite a lot, but Tarox makes just high quality products
But I am still looking for fully floating replacement haven't found it yet
if you want 2-piece replacement - this is cheaper https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-part...09607ecs01akt/

Yeah saw those. I think 400 Australian a disc is what they are worth, by the time I pay in USD and ship them over here I'll be up for over 1200 bucks. Might be the only way though.

Thanks for helping though, I take it you have a set ?

In that case if you haven't seen this https://www.turnermotorsport.com/t-b...ke-Differences it explains a lot!
Also this thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=828362
And this one
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1188080

But this is likely what you need as it's the cheapest that I've found the kit

https://www.getbmwparts.com/partloca...catalogid=4462


I started googling disc part numbers and Zimmerman and TRW make replacements for the M Performance dimpled and slotted discs
eBay has some pretty decent prices on those. They aren't quite proper two piece discs but they do have aluminium hats like stock.

I got a reply from Adams and no they don't make them. DBA still hasn't made a set either.

Sorry, I thought you were asking about Tarox rotors, which I don't have on my car. I have Msport brakes on my 335d from factory My english is not perfect

They do represent the best value I agree.

Just search front 34106797603 and rear 34206797600 in eBay ....

Hey feuer,

I've managed to contact Nashin in Taiwan and they are going to see what they can do about a two piece floating disc for us.
They already make a disc in that size for BMW but it's 32mm thick. I've sent them the photo above...
Do you think it will fit and do you have any of the other dimensions at hand ?

M3/4 380mm rotors are 30mm just like non M 370mm but I think 32mm will be just fine. Hopefully they won't be expensive.

He was looking for the other dimensions of the OEM rotor?!

But - I don't think that fully floating solution will be possible There is just 19.5 mm from wheel hub to friction area of the rotor (sorry for my bad english) (223-184)/2=19.5 mm
Probabbly just two piece (just direct bolts through) will be possible

We have had the dimensions for a long time. 4-5 years now. That is not what Aus335iguy was asking. Anyhow, you brought up a very valid point. 19.5mm is "enough" to have a floating rotor but need to be done properly without jeopardizing safety. Look here:

For every day driving would be fine. If you track and using sticky tires and aggressive pads? They will need to be STRONG!
