Decent rotors, nothing special?

I only have 57k on my street driven 335d. I don't do anything special at all (track/race/drive fast), but my brakes are pulsing like it needs rotors.
Any good replacement ones that are not too expensive? Google shows hundreds of choices. I don't want race or cheap, just decent rotors that get the job done and will last longer than 50k miles.
Anything I should stay away from? I don't want to really go with BMW dealer rotors $$ since they didn't last at all for daily driving.

I got Brembo rotors front and rear and Bosch quiet cast pads from AouthausAZ for $320.00 shipped. They perform great.

Assuming you don't want any drilled or slotted type rotors, check out Raybestos Advanced Technology or Pagid High Carbon. They have coating on the hats and vanes to avoid rust and are generally good quality. For a set of all 4 at RockAuto you'd be looking at $223.16 for Pagid, or $255.16 for Raybestos.

I used to recommend Centric plan or StopTech slotted (but not cross drilled) rotors. They're the same company and the StopTech rotors are just slotted and/or drilled Centric rotors. But lately I've been seeing folks talking about some quality variations with the Centric rotors, coming from different countries of origin etc., so they're a bit of a question mark.

The StopTech pads are very popular though and a good option for a mild performance upgrade on a daily driver. Those are $99.58 for a set at RockAuto.

Zimmerman zinc coated rotors would be my choice.
