    Alright guys,

    Wondering if anyone had bought a set of good cheap-ish drilled and grooved brake discs ?

    If so, don't suppose there's a link ?

    cheers.
    You have to give me credit for trying !

    Check out CRN's shop on here ...http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/f132/
    You can ask Nigel for some advice first, as he can make the cross drilled discs for you.

    i dont think cheap and decent go together very well.
    brembo grooved discs work well with red stuff pads, brembo disc prices are reasonable compared to some EBC.
    bare in mind that cheap discs will probably last half the time as the more expensive items and will be more prone to warping too.
    i have standard bembo vented discs with greenstuff pads on mine, but its only a 2.5 and not up to 200bhp yet. as yours is a 328 you could op for the red stuff pads and grooved discs...they give a great hint of colour through the wheels

    I didn't mean cheap as in 'cheap' I meant did anyone know of somewhere that sells decent discs at a cheap-ish price. To be honest though prices arn't bad for the e36. quite like the look of this combo:

    I've been using those discs on my Z3, much better than standard. Running with EBC greenstuff pads and braided brake hoses
