Im going to need new front brakes

Im new to BMW and my car is a 08 335i coupe. Im going to need new brakes sometime soon. What do you all recommend without breaking the bank?
Also maybe a set of rotors if there are something out there that is better than what I have.
Mines a sport package if that matters

Normally I don't say this however dude open your eyes and look at all the other threads. Seriously there are literally three threads within five postings of this thread alone.

I got the same kit (for 325i of course) these work much better than stock. The ceramic pads are very good they make no noise whatsoever and ALOT less dust than stock.

Please oh please stop responding to this thread.... It's apparent the OP needs to have his car maintained by the dealership any discussion otherwise would just further confuse or cause him to spam the board with even more basic questions like....how come the sport rotors are the same as the standard rotors or where are the brakes... how do I remove a tire etc....
