I've already decided (unless some one tells me it's a bad idea) to go with EBC's Green Stuff Brake pads. My only problem is I havn't found a reputable looking site that sells them. The sites I usually buy from don't carry them. So does anybody know a good site that sells them?

Also,while replacing the back drivers side wheel bearing, are there any other little things I could do at the same time while i'm in there? I know that the brakes and axels have to be removed... not exactly sure what else.

Thanks

I you are going to use the pads for daily driving, let us know how they do. I'm curious. Dust, sound, feel and such.

If you are to use them at the track I know how they'll be.

You do NOT want EBC greenstuff pads. The stock OEM pads kick their ass, plus they don't dig into the rotors half as much. I reccommend you simply get OEM pads and Zimmermann rotors. I had them for around 10k miles before I wrecked and they worked awesomely. I ran a hard downhill on stunt road with my stainless brake lines installed, and I literally had my rotors glowing bright orange and my pads smoking with no fade whatsoever. Awesome.

Best brakes for E36 using stock calipers:
Zimmermann crossdrilled rotors
Oem pads
Stainless brake lines
Super Blue Race fluid.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

are there any aftermarket pads that would do a good job? I don't have the money to throw down for rotors and pads. However, my front pads are about gone and rears only have a bit more life than the front.

Bad, very bad on the track on E36 M3's.
They work on E30's for short stints.

I don't use EBC, I have ferodo RS23 pads. This model year they are called DS2500. They are comparable to Pagid Blue.

So they are not all out racing pads, like the Yellow Pagid (RS19) or PFC 97. But take alot more then oem or EBC green/red -stuff.
Squeel a lot when driving slow and when they are cold. It's a fair bit of rotors too. Cost a bit over 300dollars for the front pads. Don't recomend them for just normal daily driving.

I've just about melted the stock pads. Which is why I am shopping for something with a little bit higher heat tolerance (and perferably less brake dust).

But any way, should I go with Pagid or Mintex? They are both OEM and I've never really heard if there is a differnace between their regular pads.

Both Pagid and Mintex does a lot different kinds of pads, so just answering that is hard. Any specific models you have in mind? Someone might have tested and have an opinion oof them.

Heat resistace and low cost and squeel is a hard combination to find :P

the OEM replacement pads.... Or if they make another pad that is still good, ie. doesn't warp or otherwise damage the rotor, but has higher heat tolerances, without a lot of squeeling, or at least squeling that can be controled by that anti noise stuff.
