Slotted rear rotors for oem replacement

Hi guys,

I am looking to replace the rear oem rotors. Is there a good brand offering slotted ones instead of drilled that would be just a dropin on the oem rear calipers et al? I am looking for a cosmetic change in look.

Many thanks.

+1, where did you hear? Would be nice to have more alternatives when brake job is coming around. Soon. Just replaced my front rotors when i got new pads for the car. In another 10-20k miles might want to do the rears too even though the rotor thickness and wear is still pretty good. Cheers!

I can only find drilled AND slotted for now. Any idea if they will release a slotted only and when?

LMAO, $844 for those?! Even if you walk into a dealership and pay full retail, the OEM ones are only $600ish (you can find them for less than that). Even if you want the slotting for the marginal improvement in bite, there's now way I'd pay an extra $244 for them.

Why would you want slotted over drilled? If your car is mainly a street car I would stay with drilled.

It's a track car and it's my weekend car, and it's a cosmetic 'look' change I am looking for. I have a slotted bbk in the front, the rear doesn't need upgrading, I just would prefer slotted look all around.

Also drilled rotors wear brake pads faster than slotted.
On my other car 135i, i actually prefer blank rotors(stock) over slotted. Pads last longer and i dont really feel less braking performance with blank rotors.

Slotting does offer a bit more bite and helps keep pad wear to be more even (better "cleaning") but you do get increased noise and reduced overall life.

Frankly I'd rather just have blank faces.
