    This has happened on my ZHP several times over the years (various aftermarket pads, on 2 different brand of rotors), but I use Zymol soap not Meguiarís. Strangely it has never happened on my X3 or my old manís E60 using the same soap (OEM pads).

    Daniel,

    You need to update your project thread showing your complete BMW Performance BBKs installed.

    Very interesting. And this is actually some sort of residue and not rust? I have zimmerman rotors with pagid and the other OEM brand pad around my car and they rust like crazy after a wash or even sitting in the rain but I never had them seize on me. I typically use adams soap.
