paint your stock calipers red. there is a diy thred on here i think.

you can get slotted or drilled (or both) rotors.

as for pads, many people like stock oem pads(good bite) but has terrible dust. I just changed to hawk hps. some people go with cool carbon/akebono.

id suggest changing your braking fluid to racing fluid also.

Bear in mind Zimmerman and Brembo are OEM suppliers to BMW. Good pad suggestions above and you will need at least front rotors maybe rears too. If you see cheap slotted or drilled rotors make sure they are quality products. Cheap and BMW don't equate. Get something at least average in quality as you can incur rotor failure cracks using poor quality slotted or drilled rotors with poor heat treat...

Stoptechs look like they might be a good choice, and not as pricey as the Brembos etc. Anyone using them?
