Brakes for my E90

I would like to have a new brakes system for my car. Ive been searching on the Internet and magazines. I wanna hear what everybody's opinions here.
There is 5 brand of brakes I am thinking now.

Brembo, AP, ARMA, Alcon, Arqray.

Brembo and Stoptech are the two big guns in the market. Followed closesly by AP and then the other brands. I would suggest Brembo because of their design, build quality, and track record (no pun intended). It also depends on what application you are going for (i.e. looks or performance). If you have any questions regarding Brembos, please feel free to shoot me a PM!

Not enough data to give you correct advise. Describe what you need it for. If track, then Alcon, Performance Friction, AP, Brembo. If for everyday use, then BMW Performance is the best value.
