I've had Axxis pads for about a year now...

I must say they are quite impressive. Price is very good at $70 for the entire car!

The EBC green is too soft a pad for our cars. Cars in our(E46) weight category will eat thru EBC Green pads like butter. The EBC Red has been known to still dust and in some cases warp rotors. I recommend to stay away from EBC.


There are over a 100 E46's running Axxis Pads. Havent heard of one complaint. They are great! Karl still is honoring the GB that we set up almost a year ago, due to the overwhelming response. Right now im workin with Karl to get a set for the E46M3.

Well, still didn't get a chance to put them on yet. I let my inlaws take my car with them to the performance shop and they said my rotors were uneven and they did want to put them on. So I was planning on waiting till BMW replaces my rotors. But, I took my car in to service and they changed the pads without changing the rotors. So I guess I'll have to do it myself when the weather gets better. :sad:

Hey Conrad, I just installed mine today and I have a warning for you. The pads are fine but justbmws.com sent me the wrong damn sensors!!!! Totally different size and fitment. Make sure you're sensors are the correct ones. You'l know what I mean when you pull it apart. I had cleaned out the old sensor and had to reuse it since my pads were worn anyway. Let me know if you have any questions....

okies...wait...are the sensors packed with the pads? I didn't see any wires that came along with the pads. I can probably just use the ones that are on the new pads that the dealer installed.
