Daily driver Brake pad replacement

Hey guys,

It's time to get some new brake pads. Anyone have any suggestions other than going with factory? Also I may be in the market for rotors as well. Just the front for now the rear pads and rotors look good. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

There are a few board sponsors that sell BMW OEM parts and may have alternative parts as well. You could also try Bravarian motors and see what they carry but you should be able to get some competitive pricing out there.

Hmmm...seems good but I would stick with trusted brands for use on a car such as yours. If the cost is reasonable and you want to give them a try, then let us know how they turn out.

I put some Axxis Advanced Pads on my X5 and was very impressed with the lack of dust but still close to stock feel and performance. I have tried most of the pads out there at various times and if I were going to move away from stock it would only be to the Axxis brand.
