Question Brake Pads PAGID, Mintex, ATE, Hawk etc???

I need new pads.
Good Stock system but not enough grab.
Mechanic says wrong type of pads.
Any suggestions?

Some Bavauto prices:

Mintex replacements $35? (virtually dust free)

Pagid replacements $40?

Mintex C Techs High Performance $95 a pair?

Pagid Sport "blue" $150?


I think I'll go with Pagid replacements. "Best all around, exceptional braking"
affordable.

Good enough for autocrossing?

Local shop has Pagid and can order the Mintex CTechs but they are $148 $146 front rear.

$96 to install, ugh.
I'll do it myself. Go Bently LOL

Brake pads

I am a PBR/AXXIS Metal Master guy. I use them on m 750 and they haul her down quick with no fade and almost no dusting.

Get the Metal Masters...

I second the Metal Masters! Great performance and very little brake dust.

Those others are gonna dust up like crazy and turn your rims to crap.

Porterfield R4-S brake pads would be my pick, but not sure if they offer them for your car... :\

Porterfield R4-S Carbon/Kevlar Brake pads offer these advantages:

* No Squeal
* Light Pedal Effort

* High Friction, Hot or Cold
* Low Wear Rate
* Street & Limited Competition Use
* Fastest Stopping Road Pad Available!
* Friction Coefficient:
OEM: Between .2 and .3
Porterfield: .4
* Temperature Tolearance:
OEM: 500-700 degrees F
Porterfield: 1,100 degrees F

Just as a addon to that, most oem bmw pads are actually more like .35u (coeffecient of friction)
Its the brands that american and jap cars use that have more like .2u as oem.

I have always used EBC greenstuf but Im getting EBC yellowstuf R (.6 cu friction) pads for my 325is as soon as my BBK gets here.
