Best Place To Buy The Pads !!

Sup Guys!

My car started to shake lately under braking so am guessing it's time for them to get changed ( i hope it's just the pads) . so am looking for the best price to buy these and if possible some with way less Dust than the OEM.

Thank you

It's not the pads if u r getting shaking in the steering wheel. It's the rotors.

Correct. Replace them all or you're just gonna trash your new pads.

Surely. A lot of people run the Performance rotors and the Cool Carbons. Any quality parts will be okay together. Just stay away from the cheap stuff and you'll be good... Best of luck!

Jason Tischer (getbmwparts.com) has a brake kit with everything you need: pads, rotors and wear sensors and pad paste. ~$485 for the kit...

Dan United has the best deal on Performance rotors... ~$262 for a pair...

Wow, that's really cheap, $262 for a set of BMW Performance rotors, for the front, is it not??
EDIT: not that I really rely on the pictures too much.. but those don't look like mine...
EDIT2: PS - I'm running the cool carbon's with BMW Performance rotors and am very happy with the setup.

Yea... they have the wrong picture up. I think the rotors pictured are 1M rotors - which are even more $$$! lol
