Warping would normally be caused by running the temp. up on the discs, then sitting with your foot on the brake while they cool so that they cool unevenly.
I agree with Steve & A20, they aren't warped, 'cause warped discs don't get better !
New Offside calliper fitted Today so we will find out Tomorrow if the problem has been rectified
we had a old shape 325i on the old D plate ( D x3 VNU )( had to run this on leaded petrol ) up in Scotland did a quick stop to pull into a lay by for a good view ran though a large puddle , result warped disks , new disks and pads i think it was about £100 for the job
One of my mates warped/fecked his discs quite quickly, but he had a caliper that used to stick, so they were red hot all the time and hefty braking just fecked em worse....... Guessing a very hot caliper plus rain/spray could do it this quick, but I'd say road surface.......
After going through two sets of front discs(1 BMW 1 Pattern) I upgraded to EBC drilled and grooved disc with green stuff pads on the recomendation of the sales guy at EBC.I do most of my driving at high speed on motorway and the need for hard braking from high speeds warped the other discs.
All I can say is 14000 miles now and they just seem to get stronger.Pads don't seem to have worn any more than standard.
Thus ends EBC product review for today
