They don't. I always buy slotted, then have them dimpled.

That's a myth. They settle down straight away. 608mm front height 590mm rear height from bottom of a 19" rim to the fender edge.

It's also got shaved top mounts and Shorter E36 M3 bump stops to retain oem travel.

Curious - what's the reasoning behind this?

Drllled rotors are prone to cracking between the holes. If the discs are dimpled instead, it retains the appearance of drilled, but has the strength and integrity of slotted.

TBH, I did it purely for the cosmetics. Slotted are fine as they are.
