    I am now looking for good reasonably priced brake discs for my "W" 2000 1.9

    any recommendations?

    I am not looking for high priced performance parts.

    I seen these on ebay too, and liked the look of them. They are priced reasonably too. I'm interested in thoughts about these because I intend to replace mine in the new year.

    My only thoughts are that there are 10 fixings bolt holes
    makes me think universal and not pacific to Z3

    I've got brembo supersports (drilled and grooved) on the front and standard discs on the rear.
    Works really well, even on track.
    But you have to brake them in a bit.
    With my first trackday (with brand new discs) they where smoking when i entered the pitlane after 10-15 laps.

    Regards, Koen

    Not heard of the manufacturer of the discs before... Would be wanting a known brand for the discs. Last time I went with Pagid discs and pads from eurocarparts.

    Brembo are OEM equipment on a number of sporty vehicles including Porsche, i fitted Brembo discs to mine recently, to be honest at this level they will all be made from cast iron, so not a lot to choose from any of the makes, but you can get a good deal on the Brembo i paid £52 for vented fronts (3.0) the 1.9 solid fronts are about £38. The money in my opinion should be spent on the pads.
