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.
Correct me if im wrong but im sure many aftermarket pads are fine and similar to factory spec of the oem ones. Reading your comment give the impression non oem pads will eat your rotors in no time really? Have never heard this before?

Also.. Ditch the platinum plugs asap, it is well documented the m20 engine don't like them.
