I need a few things doing to my car, can anyone help

it is a 1998 BMW 328i Convertible with manual gear-box

Firstly i need a set of tyres..... they are Continental Sports on it now, does anyone suggest anything else..... either as good as or better?

secondly i need some new brake pads, i would ideally prefer some which don't kick a load of dust on to my alloys.

and thirdly can anyone suggest a good stainless steel/chrome exhaust for the car?

for an exhaust id go with the Borla cat-back system or the Generation 3 exhaust from activeautowerke.com

dustless brake pads are not a good idea. For the most part they are alot harder and increase stopping distance.

Buy Bridgestone or Yokohama tires. Dollar for dollar they are superior to anything out there. (I like Z, but if you want a little more confort go for the H rated tire)

I am gonna try Pagid Brake pads soon. My research found these to be the most sport/best wear/no dust pad I could find. I'll let ya know how they do...

As for exhaust if you want aggressive, go for the Borla. Hear is a link to my audio clip. For more info on it, you can read the thread that skawful started for me.{HERE}

I have Bridgestone Turanza LS-H's and they are awesome even in the snow and rain...not high perf. but I will upgrade when I get bigger rims.

EBC pads aren't too bad for messy wear

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

that link is incredible, if i ever get my E36 (it feels so far away!) i definetely want it to sound like that. My car tends to drone around 2000-2500rpm, but you said yours doesn't get intrusive when cruising... awesome
