Fellas,

I am going to have to replace my front rotors and all of my pads in the next few weeks. I was wondering if any of you had any idea about some places I could get the rotors online for a decent price. I'd prefer Brembo, but anything that's not $500 is an option. Any sites or links would be appreciated. Also, I need to get some pads for the front and backs. Any ideas about good prices would also be helpful. Thanks in advance.

I went with JURID Pads and Brembro rotors. Cost me $50 a rotor and $30 for each set of pads. Installed everything myself. Got my parts from a local autoparts. I'm in Montreal, Canada.

Keep in mind cheaper pads won't last long and they'll dust up your wheels pretty good. Stop just as good as the OEM's that were on there previously though.

All prices Canadian.... obviously.

get em from me if you want. Hawk, Mintex, or Ferodo pads. ///M, Zimmerman, or Balo rotors, decent prices Bimmerworld.com

I would reccommend Hawk HPS's and Zimmerman rotors. A good pad rotor combo for the money.

AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

Dude, I just did the exact job last weekend (failed inspection cause of thin rotors and back pads). I did quite a bit of shopping around on the net and found http://www.stopshopanddrive.com
Four Brembo rotors, Mintex rear pads (I just changed the fronts about two months ago) and sensor for $170. This site has free shipping for anything over 50 bucks, most of the others are free at $75 if at all. Dont forget to get some anti-sqeal, caliper grease and four rotor retaining bolts. It arrived two days later. I would still go to BavAuto for some things but this is darn cheap. Fun job, killed my knees though.
