Rear Brakes

I am in need of new rear rotors and pads. Having looked at various options, i have decided on Zimmerman coated rotors and Textar E brake pads. I debated whether i wanted slotted or drilled rotors but in the end they provide not real performance enhancement for a daily driver, wear out pads much quicker and the rotors cost more with a shorter life span. While they do look better asthetically, I wanted the performance and longevity that comes from the Zimmerman rotors.

Looked at the ceramic pads but I kept comingback to the Textar E's as one of the best daily driver pads on the market.

Is this the right decision?

That'd be my decision for a DD. AFAIK E9x rotors are made by Zimmerman and the pads by Textar so they're both OEM.
