EDIT: Just to clarify, you want to buy OE pads that are not in the BMW box? Go on ECStuning.com. They are a supporting vendor here and they can help you with this.
Thanks man. The info is helpful.
My friend with similar car is also looking to replace the brakes.
We are talking about DIO (doing it ourselves) :-).
I will not go to outside shop just to save $100. Dealership is better in that case and I can also get a loaner
