problem with E36 Brake

Hi everybody!!!

I've upgraded the brakes on my 1999 318ti M44 to drilled and slotted disks and ceramic brake pads. Now, there is a very low speed "abs chatter" that occurs below five mph regardless of how hard the braking is from speed. I can be running sixty and step on the brake - not hard, but firm. The "chatter doesn't start until I'm almost completely stopped.
Is there a "left" and "right" designated rotor when using slotted and drilled disks? Might this be causing the "chatter" if installed backwards? I'm not getting any codes from the OBDII, so I don't suspect a wheel speed sensor.
Thank for your help!!!

Hello and welcome to the forum! Take a look at the link below to an earlier thread where this is discussed. There is no designation for right or left rotors - the only designation is front or rear. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
