Mein Auto: 745i
Rear Brake Pads/rotors

I need to replace both Rotors and Pads on my E65 (2002-745i) and was hoping for input on low dust/low cost set of pads, as well as recommendations on what rotors to buy. info on experiences - good or bad, would be appreciated.

Also anyone know where i can get the chrome trim on the outside of the doors replaced? I am trying to replace them with Matte black, or at least replace these due to all the scratches.

Thanks !!

Howdee - I used PBR Axxis pads on my E46 brake job, dust build up virtually dissapeared.

I used OEM Zimmerman rotors.

Hope that helps.

I need to do my fronts and rears soon. Let me know what route you go and the results. I was thinking about Brembo rotors and some kind of ceramic pad to help mitigate the dusting.
