07 530xi Brake Job/ original parts vs aftermarket

Hi all I have a 07 530xi that i plan on replacing pads and rotors. Should i stick with original BMW parts or is there an aftermarket brand that is comparable. It stops on a dime right now and i don't want to sacrifice that for a couple of bucks.

Thanks in advance for your input

You can buy the same brand as aftermarket,most likely ate,but most brake pad major brands will do.it comes down to preference.

Look into Hawk Brake pads and rotors. I hear excellent reviews about them.

Good Cheap Used Cars
