Best place to buy OEM pads and rotors?

Brake pad light came on. I guess it's that time. Looking for some suggestions of good sources for all of the brake parts.

Thanks

For the pads, most years for the E83, Jurid appears to be the main or sole supplier.
If there is another, Textar could be it.

For the rotors, I have never seen a definitive answer.

Check out:

They are very good on the Canadian side, not sure how they hold up to the US competition.

As far as the genuine rotor manufacturer, I don't know and I can't seem to find it either. The answer you got for the pads is correct though.

I'm at 93k on my 09 and still on original pads/rotors on front (light hasn't triggered yet but wont be surprised if dealer changes next week at next appt). Rears replaced at 74k by dealer under 100k maintenance program but light never triggered.
