There are a few options that you can go. Some people complain that aftermarket pads give up some of the bite that OEM pads have and some have a tendency to squeal. You could always just get a full OEM replacement from Tischer (getbmwparts.com) for $250 per axle which includes, pads, rotors and sensors. Or you could upgrade and get either Brembo OEM cross drilled replacements from ModBargains for $170 a pair and match them with some aftermarket pads like Hawks or Akebono Euro Ceramics. You could also go to Turner and get some either OEM replacement cross drileld or slotted rotors and match them with a pad as well. Basically if you're not really going to track the car, nor do you really care about modding then I'd stick with OEM pads and rotors.
