Thanks for placing your order.
NP, happy to, thanks again for setting up the GB. If they do come out with a rear PU caliper, it's going to be hard not to give in to that.

Remember, it's not just how much they cost, but what you get for the money. RB are 30mm thick, not 28 like OE. Allowable wear is 2mm, not 1.6mm. So that's 25% more rotor wear, and the replacement rings are less than new OEM rotors (or equally priced if they're ever on sale). Reports are that these wear better than OEM too, and the slotted vs. drilled design has some advantages if you take the car to the track as well.

Hack, thanks for the post over on the RB forum.

thanks Hack and Finnegan!

BMW just replaced my rotors and pads as a warranty item-rotors showed cracks between some of the drilled holes. Im tempted to get these, but with a fresh set, i dont know if it is worth it yet.

You can always sell your practically brand new rotors and recoup some of the money! That's what I'm doing.

GB signup is now CLOSED. All those that signed up and have still not made their orders (I know at least two of you in this thread) please get those in before next week as the GB pricing will go away.

Thanks!

There are still two members that have signed up for the GB but not yet placed their orders. Today is the last day to place an order AND be eligible to get the 20% discount on future rear rotors and front and rear PU upgrades for the next year.

Please place your orders if you haven't already!

Any updates on this GB? I signed up with an order number, but no status updates from their forum link...

Is the GB still active? I'd opt out for the oem rotors very soon...

It's now closed, but your order was in before the cutoff.

See this post.

RB has now posted up the rear rotor GB link in the original GB for the front rotors that I posted up. Follow the links and if you participated in the front GB, you get 20% off the rears no matter how many people sign up!

Indeed they did. Started a new thread on this earlier today (since it's rear this time). Details on the thread. We can merge threads if that seems like a good idea...

Just in case anyone didn't see the other thread created:

Everyone, rear GB ends 1/31/13!...Jump on it please.

If you participated in the GB for the fronts, you have till 10/15/13 to pay, however I would appreciate that if you plan on purchasing the rear, jump on the GB so at least those that haven't participated can still get the 20% dicount! You don't have to pay yet if you were already in the GB for the front rotors so this is an easy way to help fellow enthusiasts!
