    I just installed this kit at 238,880 miles. It was a budget kit and wanted to give it a try. This kit is replacing the BMW performance rotors and Akebono pads. Job time was 5 hours start to finish.

    The kit was $279.99, shipped and included the following:

    Qty (2) - Front Brake Discs for '01-'05 BMW E46 330 (and '06 two door)
    Qty (2) - Rear Brake Discs for*'01-'05 BMW E46 330 (and '06 two door)
    Qty (1) - Front StopTech STREET Brake Pads for*'01-'05 BMW E46 330 (and '06 two door)
    Qty (1) - Rear StopTech STREET Brake Pads for*'01-'05 BMW E46 330 (and '06 two door)
    Qty (4) - Rotor Retaining Screws / Rotor Hold-down Bolts
    Qty (4) - brake pad anti rattle spring clips
    Qty (1) - Brake Pad Sensor Wire (Front) - Uro
    Qty (1) - Brake Pad Sensor Wire (Rear) - Uro
    Qty (8) - Caliper guide pin dust caps - Uro
    Qty (8) - Caliper guide pin boots - Uro

    Took the car out for a quick bed in and they felt really good. I'll update this thread with my impressions after some time.





    Looks good behind the CK's







    I'm going to go ahead and say it was time for some brake maintenance.

    That was such a great deal. I stared at it in my cart after you posted it, but ultimately had too many other expenses and had to let it slide. That's a lot of kit for $280. They do look really nice behind your BBS wheels. I hope they perform great for you.

    Agree. The kit is still listed at the sale price.

    So far. Zero noise. Zero rattle. I'll put about 50 miles on the kit tomorrow.

    I had the Ate PremiumOne rotors on the E28 for years without any issues. I thought they had been discontinued, so perhaps the sale price is to blow out old stock. Now the rotor is called Ate PowerDisc.

    Thanks for this- what a price! I'm glad there is some kind of channel on the rotors- I've been having wet weather stopping problems with the stock rotors and it's no fun.


    ON EDIT:
    Bought a set! Thanks again...
