    Brake rotor question

    Has anyone needed to replace their front brake rotor yet? if so did you go with aftermarket or OEM and did you get from the dealer or parts house? who did you use?

    Thanks for the help, I have looked at quite a few aftermarket sites with no luck as to finding any.

    EBC MD3096RS is a better quality solid rotor than OEM, and a bit less money too. Add a set of kevlar pads and upgrade your OEM crappy rubber brake line with a stainless steel one and you will see a noticable improvement in braking.

    A Google search on the EBC part number will turn up a bunch of options, but I noticed it listed in the $140-150 range, about $10-20 cheaper than the marginal OEM solid rotor. A floating rotor would be an even better choice, but I am unaware of anyone who makes a floating rotor for the M50. Good Kevlar pads will set you back about $45-50, same as the crappy OEM pads. A stainless steel brake line will cost about $80-90, $10-20 more than a stock rubber one. So all in all it is a wash, costing the same as the OEM set up, but this set up will perform MUCH better, stopping quicker, having less fade, and giving much better lever feedback.
