I will be changing my pads fo rthe first time on the e36, 325i and want some great brakin gpower but moderate dust.
go to BAVAUTO.com right now!
look for MINTEX or PAGID brand break pads and BMW rotors:
they are OEM and cheap. The whole set for all 4 wheels with sensor wires cost $307.90 plus S&H (and labor if you don't DIY)...
that is dirt cheap for quality OEM BMW brakes. Also MINTEX give off less dust than PAGIDs, but PAGIDS last longer and are better if you drive a very high speeds and brake hard whiles going 100 MPH. MINTEX are just as good but for everyday regular-ass driving.
I also heard Greenstuff and Hawks are good but pricey and loud for the same performance.
Brembos drilled and slotted rotors are a waste of money...the add nothing and increase rotor weardown and add the risk of cracking...
