I have had some serious brake fade driving in the mountains (oh **** brake fade). This was more-hey, I am not slowing as quickly as I usually do fade. I have no clue what pads I have on now, so that's a no brainer....fluid probably needs to be flushed as well. I haven't done it in the year I have had the car.

Any recommendations for pads? Did I see to stay away from ceramic??

Also, how often do you need to change your ebrake shoes? As needed or regularly scheduled...
If you experienced fade, you need to change the fluid. Performance Friction z-comps are my favorite. Check out bimmerworld for those. PF has brake fluid out now too. ATE superblue fluid is much cheaper though.
