I have not and will not track the 128, but I do for my Z4M. Stock pads are just not good. They are not meant to be driven hard.
I had trouble stopping during Autocross and refused to take them to the track.
I swapped to Super Blue and HP+ pads and I couldn't be happier. The car stops on itself.
Replace the pads and you'll be fine.
If not, have fun wasting money and finding out there is no difference.
...ahhh i feel you are making too much of a general comment.
By experience after tracking ( lime rock park i believe) with stock calipers and pads and BBK calipers and bmw pads, i found the braking to be AMAZING.. a much more harder pedal and definietly confidence building enough to brake a little deeper. If i recall my times were almost 2 seconds faster with the BBK on .
I have tracked my 128 for over 2 years...(even have won class champion !!) with the upgrades listed
stock pads will not survive long at the track.. ...
