F30 Brake Discs / Rotors
 
Front brake discs need replacing.

2014 F30 Active Hybrid

What front brake discs are you running and how do you find them?

So many options and various prices so not sure what to choose

Car has Blue MSport calipers

When i replaced them on my F30, I just used the stock BMW parts that came on the car.

So you have Msport brakes. Have you been happy with the brakes? If so, I would replace them with OEM products.

If you are not happy, then I would investigate alternatives.

Go on realoem.com and find the OE part numbers. Then order from getBMWparts.com

Have found 2 piece dimpled and grooved TRW ones for 150 delivered.

Would you recommend these or stick to brembo or Zimmermann?

TRW makes good/OEM parts. If you like the price & features you'll be fine.

Zimmermann makes excellent rotors. Made in Germany.

F30 Brake Discs / Rotors
 
For pads, Pagid, Textar and Mintex are all owned by the same company that has been an OEM supplier to BMW for an eternity. Good quality and good prices.
If you want something higher performance I would recommend Hawk.
