No BBK would use BMW OEM pads... you wouldn't want it to! That's the idea, more pad area than OE.

The 4-piston Alcon calipers use a specific pad shape as detailed on our website (you have visited our website already and learned all there is to know about the Alcon kits, riiiight?

See this page for details on the pads:

Pad shape cross-reference:
Hawk Part # HB 105.630
Performance Friction (PFC) Part # 7700**16.4
Wilwood # 9216
Ferodo Part # FRP1077
All of these companies make a variety of materials in this shape.
