Which BP and rotors for 325i e90?

Hello all,

Ive been reading up through the forum and can't find a clear answer, so im turning to the community. My front brake pads and rotors are in need of replacement and I am wondering what the best options are. Direct OEM kit from dealer is 320 for the front.

My question is, is this the best option, or is there a better kit out there for the same price that the stealership charges?

P.s. I have the sports package 2006 325i e90. Thanks!

Garage List
Get a set of zimmerman or brembo rotors along with some ceramic brake pads for low dust. Or you can buy oem pads if you like the bite that they have.

hi VincentCloudX07, did you ever get the pads and rotors? if you did how did it turn out?

I'm going through the same, I need to do the front and rear brakes on my daughter's 2006 325I with the sport packages, but I have no experience on what brands to get. how did yours turn out and would you recommend them?

Thanks, any info will be appreciated.

Our Stoptech Rotors & Pad Package Deal Combos have been very popular. We can also sub in Hawk Pads which are another popular option. I've ran similar brakes on my other cars and plan on doing my 335xi this spring with a Stoptech and Hawk 5.0 Pad.

Hey Agreen,

I actually went with R1 concepts premier rotors (slotted and drilled) and their R1 Optimum OE Semi-Metallic Brake Pads. There was a delay in shipping due to warehouse issues but the main rep for the forums Kevin bumped shipping up to expedite them here. I will put them on this weekend and can tell you what I think.

The only thing I need to ask the rep about is that fact that both the rotors and brake pads did not come in any actual product box, just a shipping box, part numbers are also off it seems. I could be wrong here though. I am a little confused as to why not as other forum members had theirs come in product boxes.
