Time for new pads

The time has come for new pads.
I want to do them myself, so I wont be taking it in to BMW.

Now what are you guys recommending for replacement pads (front and rear).

I dont track the car, but I do drive it pretty hard every once in a while.

Centric Posi Quiet pads? I see those recommended here a couple times.

Any other suggestions?

Cool carbon pads are great, but you don't track so you may not notice much of a difference from stock pads.

I would suggest you go with noise free to put on the contact points of the pad with the brake caliper (you can get it from bavauto.com), it is much easier to use, cleaner and better performing than the orange stuff you get at the parts store.

Yeah I have never tracked the car and dont plan to , so i dont need track pads, I just need replacements for my worn stock pads, and would like equal or better performance for the street, and if possible pads which give off less brake dust.

Thanks for the recommendation on noise free, i was going to get the orange stuff, but will get this instead.
