I got Hawk HPS and Brembo rotors. Ive had them for about 10k miles and Ive been happy with them considering the fact that I'm hard on my brakes. Think about replacing your rotors while your at it. Good luck!!!

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...

With all due respect mate, you are wrong about cross-drilled rotors, but I agree with Delmarco's point about sloted rotors - they do have risk factor of cracking. I use Zimerman cross-drilled on front and rear with PBR Ceramic pads and staneless steel brake lines, and I am very happy with it. Low dust level, very nice braking power on hight speed, as well as cross-drilled provides you with pretty good cooling of your brakes, which OEM rotors doesnt.

Cheer.

still say PAGIDs or MINTEXs:
Remember that brakes are wear and tear devices so spending extra dough on rotors just for looks and saying "i got slotted, drilled brembos" is a waste when regular ass OEM rotors will do fine....

sort of like spending $175 on Nike Air Jordans when $20 converses look cool and does the job.
