Performance shops in etobicoke and Sauga. I bought mine from bimmian, but will never again because of their terrible customer service.

Grab a set of SP rotors and HPS ceramic pads - you won't regret it.

Fits like OEM, drilled/slotted are dead sexy and perform much better under heavy acceleration with no noise.

Was suppose to be approx $450-500(pads/rotors for rear), but because of their terrible service they gave me a discount.

My ceramic pads have just as much bite if not more than the OEM pads - just saying.

I didn't feel a change, just noticed under heavy acceleration deceleration they preformed much better.

EBC Green stuff from RMP Motors. Very little dust, performance is as good or better than OEM.

I just remembered one of our members works at a performance shop in Pacific Mall. A Chinese guy (can't remember name right now).

Was a nice guy - I'm sure he can hook you up. Look in and around the middle aisle closer to the middle of the mall just before the escalators.

I run cross drilled Zimmerman rotors with hawk ceramic
Initial bite not as good as oem but brake fade is gone.
Best part also is very little brake dust compared to oem, so that makes it mirth worth it IMO
I will say thoug if you hit the pedal harder it stops great. But I know what you mean by the oem bite

Got this setup from bimmersport I think in early spring last year

Ceramics can have a bit less bite when cold, but I think it's more-so the different initial bite most perceive as a decrease in bite. The OEM pads have a lot of initial bite whereas most ceramics have a more linear build up in bite. Once the ceramics get some heat into them, they seem to have even better bite than OEM (good quality ceramics that is).

Try looking up the friction ratings on the pads you do chose.
Akebono Euro Ceramics are a pad that I love and they will end all brake dust worries if you like having clean wheels. Everyone asks me how I keep my wheels so clean and are surprised when I tell them I can't recall the last time I washed them.

Do you mean the Auto Sports store? I have a friend who works there he can probably help get stuff for a better price if you decide to buy from there. I don't recall them having brake parts but they might be able to order.
