Any recommendations for high quality brakes parts? Basically rotors and pads.

Also, any good online retailers for these?

Thanks,

Jon

Lots of people may have different opinions on this but I strongly recommend using BMW factory brake parts and not aftermarket.
Pacific BMW, Crevier BMW and I think Circle BMW have decent online pricing.
Nothing compares with factory original BMW brake pads and rotors.

All things considered, DT is probably right, but I must point out that the stock pads make wheels dirty in no time from brake dust, and I for one am absolutely sick to death of it.

The consensus good pad that is closest to BMW quality and performance for street use but offering much less dust are Axxis Deluxe Plus pads. Check out Dave Zeffenhausen Racing's web site.
