Hi Guys, have been trying to decide what rotors and pads to pick up. I am doing 95% street driving, winter and summer. Not looking for high performance, but something in between.

BTW: have any of you used Raybestos pads/rotors?

Front and Rear Rotors and Pads:
EBC: $798.09
Raybestos: $598.75
BMW (installed) : $791.76
Zimmerman: $566.95 (+ shipping??)

Help please, need to make a call by this weekend as the car is going in for winter prep and I would like to get the brakes done at the same time.

Thanks
Shane

I have used Raybestos, its okay. I have a set of Wagner ThermoQuiets which I think work great for everyday driving. PM me if you want a set of pads/rotors (I work at a parts company)

Personally, i'd recommend not cheaping out and buying new rotors. Stay away from brembo blanks. Im sure ian will see this thread soon and sell you something:D

I'll just get BMW ones.

Don't get the racing ones- they won't work effectively until they are warmed up.

PM Randy, I found this store in Toronto, bought a set (4) of brembo coded cross drilled rotors, plus Dustless brakes(Front+rear). for 380ish canadian, tax in. Some chinesse guy has a little shop......I can't remember for the life of me, I asked Randy (EMPOWRD) to pick me up....he might remember the name of the store.

For an awsome price on Brembo rotors and performance pads, contact "ETop Line" on Nantucket Blvd in Scarboro.. they have the most unbelievable prices (as Greg mentioned) (905) 927-9756

Thanks Randy... going to give them a call later on today. My rear pads don't have much life left in 'em.

I just got a set of brembo solids and pvr's installed over the weekend. nothing impressive.. come to think of it, they actually feel a little softer than stock.. Wonder if their is a break in time or something. I paid CAN$407 for rotors and pads.
