Need Opinion on Brake Pads & Rotors

Ok... well I am on a big money crunch now so I need to go with the cheapest sadly... so if I order these two from autohausaz.com:

MDB1369 Mintex
Brake Pad Set; Rear; OE Supplier Compound
1 set per car
$32.75
_____________________________________
34211158936 Balo
Brake Disc/Brake Rotor; Rear Left/Right; Solid 280x10mm
2 per car.
$38.95
(x2 right? so total $80?)
____________________
Grand total: $110 [for pads and rotors]

and bring to my mechanic, he should be all set to replace the rears correct?

Thanks guys!

You only need to replace your rear brakes?

The mintex pads are fine, they are the cheaper ones out of the bunch, but they are quality.

Yes, I just had my fronts replaced at ummmm.... I prob shouldnt even say this but.... Firestone. Dont get mad! My brakes were down and my car was already on their lift, etc., so I just did it... I'm sure they didnt ruin anything bec luckily I got a guy who works on his own BMW and upgrade, etc., so he was all into it... sometimes I rather get it done rather than have to take it somewhere 30 miles away... I dont have a good BMW guy near me. But NEXT time i need to replace my fronts, I'll do this again, but maybe a little more upgrade if I have the cash then.

That's fine, we have all been in a pinch before. I just thought that replacing the rears only was strange.
