Rotors pads purchase

Hey guys,

Need to replace my pads and rotor on a 2012 335xi.

Where do you guys usually purchase these from?

Any recommendations? Should I just stick with OEM or areother brands preferred.

Thanks

Don't know exactly what brands they carry for your braking needs, but FCP Euro is now my go-to store for buying parts. Great prices, fast shipping (they are in CT) and what appears to be a great warranty/return policy.

They also price match if you search for their price match request form page, except from Amazon and eBay IIRC. Problem was they didn't have the parts I wanted this round.

I got my Stoptech rotors through Turner Motorsports, and Hawk HPS 5.0 pads via Amazon. OEM rotor screws, and Amazon for the pad sensors or wire your old ones to cancel out.

I would take a look at this kit and see if it will fit your car.

I've used Zimmerman rotors on all my cars and they have never rusted or warped even on my track car.

The akebono pads arnt as high performance as the hawk hps 5.0 but make almost no dust which is great for a DD
