I used PBR/AXXIS Metal Master Pads and Brembo rotors on my 1988 750 and I was not unhappy.

I got TMS Cross drilled and Axxis brake pads on my car last week. I'm not disappointed, but that combo isnt as good as BMW Oem. Maybe off by a few feet from 60, but it's noticable to me. It doesnt feel the same. The oem pads seem to grip harder. Maybe they just need tiem to break in, but it doesnt feel as good. So just go with Oem in my opinion.

exactly, give it time to break-in. They will totally kick OEM ass.

I have Hawk HPS pads and OEM rotors. Also flush the brake fluid with ATE super blue DOT4. This is a nice combo that is most cost effective IMO..

Get OEM rotors and pads(PAGID, available at bavauto.com). Don't spend too much on brakes if you won't be going very fast.

So I gotta replace everything in my brake system within the next 500 to 1000 miles...
I'm already window shopping and I noticed that Bavauto sells OE BMW Pagid Pads and Mintex Pads...they both seem to be good ole pads

Has anyone used these, the Pagids or Mintex and can give me the real scoop on either one?

Which would be better? I want silent pads and minimal dust!

Or just tell me a brand you are using or used that is really good....

thanks :thanks

I'm going to get Mintex pads maybe next week. I haven't tried them yet, but they are $5 cheaper, and somebody has to try them out, so I figured it may as well be me. You can always go on the safe side and get Pagids.

Mintex aren't bad. They'll wear really quick though... if you're hard on them that is... quicker than the Pagids... well that's my experience.

I've put a few thousand miles on my new Pagid's. Definitley squeak free, not over-dusty. I'd recommend them.

I have Mintex on my car and bought them from bavauto. You will get brake dust, how much? It's hard to tell with me because I don't drive the car that much and when I do, I usually clean the wheels the same day. They were squeaky for about a week, not too loud, (even after applying the compound when first installed) but then the low noise went away... They recommend not to step too hard on the brakes for the first few hundred miles.

I have Hawk HPS and Brembo solid rotors. Feels better than stock but I think they are still breaking in so hopefully they get even better.
