Which brake pads / price / where did you get from?

I'm staring at these:
Axxis/PBR Metal Master Brake Pads - Front ~ $59.95
Axxis/PBR Metal Master Brake Pads - Rear ~ $44.95

Yay? Nay?
Have exactly what you have and got 'em from Turner.
Love them for 50K miles so far.
Stop from cold like you were committing murder.
Leave wheels much cleaner than BMW pads.

Here's the review I wrote about them five years ago when I installed them:

Axxis MM brake pads
Recently the question of these pads and cold stops came up and so I decided when I was out testing my Koniís that my pads had been completely broken in, enough to not have to baby them any longer.
A few times at about sixty mph, I gave the brakes just short of full panic stop pressure. I had never used them that severely before, and was astounded what g force this car is capable of with the large rotors, large soft tire patch, and quality pads. The first stop was completely cold and solidly as safe as you would ever need. Iím used to considering my e46 as a thing of beauty, but this stopping power is brutal.
