Two different Akebono PNs?

I'm shopping for replacement pads/rotors and came upon two different part numbers for what appear to be similar Akebono pads.

Any insight into which is correct or any difference between the two?

I would replace the rotors with brembo's and pads with Akebono.

You should go to the manufacture's website for each and get an exact part no.

Brembo also makes a part app.

Amazon has Akebono for cheap.

Brembo rotors can be found on eBay: just make sure you get them from a power seller and the like. Midwest auto parts is one.

As far as hardware, beck and Arnley is a good non-BMW option for retention springs and what not.

Thanks, the Akebono site isnt too helpful, but a little more digging shows the proper PN for the fronts is 1061, rears are 1170. I'm going with Zimmerman/OEM for the fronts.

Concerning the hardware kit, what comes in it? I am preparing to order oem pad clips and some extra bits from Tischer but more for an emergency if I cant reuse existing hardware.
