True about the above statement. I'd add that Jurid for 01 330's. RMeuropean have them as OE pads as well.

I've also read that picking up these oem manufacturing pads without knowing which specific model can cause squealing due to slightly different compound being used. This i also noticed on my M3 as well as 330ci when i had a non specific pad. When the squealing didn't stop after bedding in the pads then i researched more on the specific pad that 01 330's had. I also compared the pads to oem at my mech's shop for confirmation.
