1999M3 is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Hi,

New to the forum.

About to get some new break pads for my 1999 M3. I'm not very knowledgeable about cars. Found out that the OEM pads are from Jurid, but I'm more familiar with Bosch. Should I stick with the OEM or is there another that someone can recommend?

I'm actually pretty happy with the OEM's, so I'm leaning towards staying with them. Haven't had to change them in 82k miles.

Thanks in advance.

Pretty good site for you to look around and see what the array of aftermarket stuff for your car is www.turnermotorsports.com... they sell a bunch of parts for your M.. check them out.. that might help you look around...

Good Luck,

I just bought all new brakes from www.bavauto.com
They have OEM and aftermarket stuff, and I went with the crossdrilled myself. When I drove hard on the stock pads and rotors I got squeal and could feel the fade. But the OEM is good stuff too, especially if you don't drive the car hard. Watch it though, Dealers will rape you for the replacement costs, look for a good independent BMW repair shop, but look for a good set online if you aren't going to put OEM on.

One thing I definitely didn't like about the OEM's was that it left a lot of dust. Searching online, I found that the OEM Jurid 187's are going for around $70, while the more familiar Bosch ceramics are going for around $50.

I don't do much hard driving, so I won't need anything for racing.

Thanks for the replies, so far. I'll take a look around the sites you recommended.

Went with PBS ceramics. Just got them on this weekend. So far, not too impressed, but I'll need a few more miles to break them in. Noticing a loud screech at the end of a stop.

When I upgraded my brakes I went with the Pagid Pads and the BavAuto Crossdrilled Rotors and I got no noise what so ever. The grip awesome and no sounds are coming from the brakes after 1000 miles. So Far so Good!
