My Ride: '99 328i 300K miles
I've read a lot about brakes and concluded that no one I'd read a post from with some other pad ever said it was better than OE. I've read many 'almost as good as OE with less dusting' and then I stop reading them!

If you drive in the rain and snow, heat and cold, rarely track, but like your car to stop...it's a bmw. Hmmm? What kind of brakes should a bmw have? Textar and blanks (I think I got Balo)...after 60K miles on a complete 4 corners (pads and rotors), I only needed to replace my front pads. I'm still here, and I didn't hit those deer that ran in front of me...though I did get rear ended by an Asian woman in a minivan 3 secs. after I stopped!

If you use OE brakes, make sure you remember how close cars are behind you...the brakes might be too good to use in some circumstances!

I'll tap my brake pedal a few times if I see traffic slowing in front of me...since I have a manual, many don't realize that cars can slow without using the brakes...so I give those behind me a little heads up.

Drive safely folks!

As desperate as this sounds, in comedy, 'likes' and 'views,' 'friends,' and 'retweets' really help. If I've ever helped you, please help me by friending, liking, viewing, and retweeting. It makes others think I have a following...it'll take you a minute or less. If you could, I'd really appreciate it!
