Post Need Opinions : What Brand Rotors/pads

I have a 00' 323i and im in the market for brakes. I'm torn between powerslot rotors with hawk street pads or zimmerman cross drilled rotors with Axis/PBR Delux plus pads. I'd appreciate any feedback, so i dont make the wrong decision!

i would definately recommend powerslot rotors with the hawk hps pads. i have a 2001 330ci and i made the switch over to the hawk pads mainly because of the excessive stock brake dust and i love the hawks. almost no brake dust and the brake response is noticeable.

Are you looking for track pads? If not, I recommend Deluxe+ over Hawk HPS. I've tried both and Deluxe+ has better bite.

I have this set up with HPS pad, and it works well. Quiet, smooth stops with less dust.
