PF08 - Cheapest place or supporting vendor

Have you checked with Frozen Rotors, or KB or KNS brakes, or G loc? I think they are all series supporters.  Possibly Discovery Parts too.

+1 for discovery, they've been great to buy from for me.    On the topic, I've been buying my cryo rotors from tirerack.  anyone beating their prices?

We just buy cheap CTEK brand from Rock Auto, good for 2-3 races easily. Last set was a champ, did RA, Daytona, AMP, 2 DE weekends and 7hrs at Sebring before one cracked.

Just seeing this now. Too bad. I just bought a set from OG Racing. Bimmerworld was out of stock. Great price on fronts at Apex for $120.

It fits it ships box with all four rotors.  So unless you can bear $20/set

Yep. FCP Euro works out well for rotors. I usually send back the failed rotors with some other broken parts.

I have heard whispers and exclamations of a amazing warranty for those driving bmw, can someone please explain it now that I am suddenly paying a bunch more attn.?

 

if they sell it on the website, it comes with a no-questions ask 100% replacement policy.

 

Just buy it again, then file a return claim and mail the old thing back within 182 days, and you will get a full refund.

 

Racing use is OK.

Engine Fluids are included.

Wear items are included.

 

Yes, its real. 

Here are my two boxes that are going out tomorrow.  For $36 in USPS it-fits-it-ships, im getting a full set of rotors, a clutch kit, an injector, and a few other random seals and bits.  In the past, I have managed to get all 4 rotors in one box.  The clutch kit was a no-go though.

What's with the 182 days? I've returned an insane amount of stuff to FCP but don't recall anything about 182 days. I think once they gave me store credit instead of my money back, but fundamentally that didn't matter as I'm seemingly always ordering more parts for this or that.

If / when FCP E change this policy or go out of business - I wonder if it will be because people did things they never expected like mail in used motor oil. Personal decision to exploit for personal gain, regardless of the (potential) harm to others (e.g. the business is out of business when a customer has a reasonable warranty claim).

 

I wonder why Land's End had to end their similar policy? Did the benefit the people who abused the policy causing it to end help or hurt in the aggregate?

 

(sorry for rant - this is a societal pet peeve - just because you can should be the reason to do anything - and a reasonable person standard makes the world a better place)

Before you judge others, please do some basic clicking of links.

I agree wholeheartedly @CBraden. I wonder what percentage of their customers send back "parts" such as used motor oil, gaskets or filters?

My guess is just the ones that want to take advantage of a good thing for their own gain, just as you said.

Ummmmmm, yes. Just like FCP suggests.

This thread delivers.
