rotors made by "zimerman" and "brembo", as far as what to get... if you got original rotors stay with organic kind (otherwise you`ll overheat your rotors), if you have drilled or sloted rotors go with ceramic (soft ceramic has less noise, but little more dust) As far as brand goes "akebono" or "pagid" woild be all right.

anyone used the cool carbon pads from bavauto? They claim they are great pads with little dust, which interests me b/c i'm getting alot of brake dust lately. Is that a sign of anything? I'm using factory rotors and looking for replacement pads because the brakes make a grinding noise occasionally, usually at slow speeds. My light isn't on though?? Any suggestions?
