335D Which Rear Brake pads?

When i went to start my car this morning, the rear brake pad on obc flashed up 4k miles left till they need replacing. i thought I may as well get them replaced as i had a look and there isnt a lot of "meat" left on them

I have done an extensive search on the forum but still unsure and have a couple of questions regarding rear brake pads brands

I will be ringing BMW up tommorow to get a price on the rear pads (how much am I looking at them?)

But I was looking on the euro car parts site and they have ATE/Pagid/Textar/Eicher pads (some vary greatly in price) plus they got 25% off this weekend

I have also seen some mintex pads on ebay but reviews tend to say stay away from them?

From my reading is it true BMW oem pads are made by Textar?

Out of the above brands which should I go for?
