Non-OEM Front Brake Pads

Hi guys

A quick question...I am running a 320d in Turkey but I am originally from Glasgow. The brake pads warning light has appeared on the dash for the front pads. BMW are quoting me the equivalent of 300 quid in Turkish money just for the pads. Daylight robbery...

Are there any reputable non-OEM brands that I can consider buying from the UK? The car is a 2010 LCI model. Any idea of part numbers or any other useful advice?

Eurocarparts, buy Textar or Pagid as they are OEM quality. Probably more like 50-60 for a set. Your price from the Turk dealer sounds wrong, even dealer here would likely be no more than 150 supply only.

I installed the textar pads on my car, great pads and they don't seem to dust as badly as most I've tried.

300 is OTT, though if your any good with tools the pads are very easy to install.
