Pagid brake pads.

Need pads for my 35d X5. Choice is between Pagid or ATE from Eurocarparts or original from dealer. Need all 4 pads, costs are 120 Pagid, 170 ATE and 270 from dealer.

Really want a nice quiet low dust pad. Financially it's an easy choice but anyone any experience of these brands. Have read good and bad on Pagid with some people reporting them as noisy and should be avoided.

Pagid are excellent. OEM to a number of marques, never had a problem with their pads or discs.

Probably no difference that you'd ever tell between any of the OEM brands - but given that Pagid come in at nearly half the price of BMW branded pads, it's a no-brainer

I think I'm converted. I didn't realise you can go to a garage other than BMW due to the mileage wear indicator on the car, I thought it would need resetting or something?

I don't mind servicing the car at BMW but pads etc can be done elsewhere.

My car needs fronts soon and rears shortly after, might just do all 4 at once.

They are quite cheap on that eurocar parts link.

I replaced my front and rear discs and pads with Pagid from ECP back in March. The biggest difference I notice is that any dust on the wheels is much finer and easier to clean than the OEM (Textar) pads I removed. The Textar pads seemed to leave very hard, almost metallic deposits on the wheels which was very difficult to clean.
