I was just on the website and it doesn't seem like they ship to Canada anymore?

I'm just looking for some premium blanks and the sensors. Any suggestions on which pads to go with that aren't too expensive?

i ordered with them through e90post. just told them what i wanted and they quoted me price and sent me a paypal request..

if you're just looking for blanks you have a lot of options like EBC and stoptech. in terms of pads theres tons of options as well and it depends on what you are looking for. a lot of people are going for aftermarket pads which produce less dust. i know akebono is a good brand. the EBC redstuff pads i got are also a low dust pad but are also meant for more spirited driving. their "greenstuff" pads i believe are more suited to be like stock.

I'm just looking for some decent rotors. I'm looking more for a premium rotor. Not sure about pads since I haven't done much research on them but something for daily driving. Don't really do any spirited driving so something that has low dust.

Is R1 Concepts a sponsor on here?

Also ordering from R1 concepts did you get it shipped USPS or UPS? I see that their ebay website list UPS and I would have thought it would have costed you more than $15 duties.

Yes R1 concepts is a sponsor on here and they used UPS. funny story is that my EBC brake pads cost me 60$ in duties and the rotors only cost me $15.. the UPS guy told me its because it depends on the manufacturing country. EBC are made in england and R1 rotors in the States.

Did you get the EBC pads from R1 concepts also? Did you contact them through ebay? I can't seem to find the sponsor on here.
