Research on Brake Rotors for BMW X5
The first generation of the BMW X5, which debuted in 1999 as BMW's first SUV, featured all-wheel drive and was available with either manual or automatic transmission. To emphasize its on-road capabilities, BMW promoted the X5 as a Sport Activity Vehicle rather than an SUV, marking a shift from light truck-based body-on-frame SUVs to crossovers underpinned by unibody car platforms.
What kind of rotors should I use?
Your factory brakes provide ample stopping power for your casual commute, but for the performance-minded enthusiast, an upgraded set of drilled or slotted rotors is recommended.
What are Slotted Rotors?
Heavy braking will overheat your brake system, causing a layer of gas and dust to form between the pad and rotor. The slots in the BMW X5 slotted brake rotor function as an escape route for the built-up gases, allowing more of the brake pad's surface area to contact the rotor.
What are cross-drilled rotors?
In the early days of racing, drilled rotors were an effective way of venting the gas and dust build-up between asbestos brake pads and the rotor that hard braking invites. For performance driving, slotted rotors have become the preferred choice. Being more prone to stress, cross-drilled rotors are likelier to crack from extreme use. On the plus side, the venting properties of drilled rotors can keep temperatures down.
What are drilled and slotted brake rotors?
Rotors that are both drilled and slotted combine the looks and functionality of cross-drilled and slotted rotors. The heavier the vehicle, the more energy is needed to slow it to a reliable stop. Brakes convert kinetic energy into heat energy, and heavier vehicles generate more heat in their braking systems, so BMW X5 drilled and slotted brake rotor will keep temperatures down and the rotor face clean.
How do you tell when your brake rotors are worn out?
Turning the steering wheel all the way to the left or right will expose the insides of the wheels, allowing you to see how much thickness remains on the pad. Then, when you are on the road, if you hear squealing or squeaking while driving, your brakes or brake rotors are in need of replacement. If you hear grinding, head straight to the mechanic.
What is the BMW X5 brake rotor replacement cost?
For parts alone, PartsGeek starts on the low end with the C-TEK standard disc at $28.33 each for the rear rotors and $37.33 each for the front. An upgrade to a drilled sport brake kit jumps up to $222.33 for the rear and $266.33 for the front. The StopTech Sport Drilled disc is cheaper at $82.33 (rear) and $100.33 (front) High carbon alloys can be had for $48.33 (rear) and $65.33 (front). Recommended for both price and quality are the StopTech Sport Drilled-Slotted Discs at $108.33 for both front and rear. Remember that there are two rotors for each end, so multiply your price by two when calculating total cost. All price quotes refer to the 2001 BMW X5 brake rotor replacement, and do not include labor, which runs high.
