    There are more options than that. Looking for a 2piece rotor front and rear.

    Rscing Brake is a very good option.
    Their hardened 2 piece rotors are light and also available in oversize if you want.
    Because they are hardened they hardly wear at all.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    When I bought my 2009 535, the factory front rotors were warped. I went with this company and they have worked quite well, no issues.

    http://www.frozenrotors.com/

    The owner of the company talked me out of cross-drilled. He said pretty much every aftermarket E60 cross-drilled rotor he'd seen had developed cracking at some point. If I have to do it again, I would probably take a chance on cross-drilled if for nothing more than the look.

    I have had cross-drilled and slotted in the past and did not care for the braking feel of slotted. Probably has its place on a track car but for the street, I found the clicking sound and pedal feel to be annoying. YMMV.

    For the most part almost all drilled rotors crack. The slots are better for displacing brake dust but as you say, they can be annoying on the street

    I've always used and recommended stoptech drilled & slotted, although that is the only brand I have used so my opinion is somewhat biased.
