as of brakes, if you do aftermarket pads, you have to put on aftermarket rotors. bmw makes their brakes out of softer material which improves braking and life. so you throw on aftermarket pads on bmw rotors, the rotors wont last the life of the pads. i liked my brembo blanks with posiquiet ceramic pads. ebc pads are good too.
I'll wait on the spark plug change again since I've already spent the money and I'm a broke college student.

As for breaks do you have a recommend replacement like if you had the free time could you advise me off of rock auto or another website and which is better staying with stock or after market?

Also I just got my Air Filter and new Oxygen sensor in the mail today so that is a win.
