That's been said already, Snik. Several times.

It's important for all of you to distinguish between OEM and OEM FOR A PARTICULAR APPLICATION.

Jurid, Pagid, etc. might make OEM pads for BMW, but they may NOT supply them for specific models such as the E46.

Different models get supplied by different brands depending on how BMW orders.

True about the above statement. I'd add that Jurid for 01 330's. RMeuropean have them as OE pads as well.

I've also read that picking up these oem manufacturing pads without knowing which specific model can cause squealing due to slightly different compound being used. This i also noticed on my M3 as well as 330ci when i had a non specific pad. When the squealing didn't stop after bedding in the pads then i researched more on the specific pad that 01 330's had. I also compared the pads to oem at my mech's shop for confirmation.

Yes. I had pagid's and couldn't deal with the squealing. Threw them out in less than 1k miles and put on the jurids. The pedal felt a bit firmer and no squeal.

I'll just confirm that OE for my '99 328i is textar. I bought both textar online and when they didn't fit, bought pads from local dealer. Identical. Turned out my caliper had seized.

I used balo blank rotors...ATE makes the caliper, but I don't know who's OE for rotors...but heard that many of the 'known' name blanks are fine...balo, zimmerman, etc.

Oh, I'd heard that BMW had to have 3 vendors for a product...just as any manufacturer might...and that textar, pagid, and I believe minox (sp?) are all housed in the same building, using the same compound. I have no evidence if that's true or not...but the compound is a large part of the brake pad story...not the entire story, but a big part of it.

Anyway, promise you that textar was my OE pad maker...and my last set of pads went 60K miles in the front...the rears are still on.

Yes my OE jurid pads have great initial bite. They feel like new bmw brakes because they are new bmw brakes.

Mango, my first set of pads I bought 5 years ago were from tischer. They were in BMW boxes and had jurid stamped very small by the pad material.
I just did my brakes again this fall and bought the pads directly from my local dealer. Same tiny jurid stamping.

Can anybody say if the claim that OEM rotors are a softer compound? I get the claim that the OEM pads being softer seeing how they put off a lot of dust but I cant confirm if the rotors are a softer compound as well..

Rotors aren't really the cause of dusting. Once they are bedded in properly, the pad will dictate surface texture and wear. Rotors should be about the same hardness between all brands (quality brands).

Ya , I realize that. But the claim that BOTH OEM BMW Pads AND Rotors Being made of softer compounds makes sense to me but I need that verified.

I am trying to verify if BMW Rotors are any different that other manufacturers. If they are different and are softer for example, then it would be worth it to spend a bit more on OEM rotors. If not, then there are a million after market brands to go with that are less expensive.

I want that OEM pedal feel and im not quite sure if its OEM pads only or OEM pads and rotors that provide that feel..

Just order organic compound Textars already. Either coated Balos or Zimmermans rotors. That combo will help you achieve the oem feel you are looking for. But enjoy cleaning brake dust every 2-3 days.
