Have you looked at price's of Brembo rotor's? I'd grab Brembo over Zimmerman they should be priced fairly similar, pad's I'd grab OEM over PBR.

Brembo rotors, hawk hp plus pads

I really recommend Brembo Blank rotors. DO NOT get Hawk HP Plus pads though. ^^

They're noisy, eat up the rotors and don't work well at all unless they're hot.

simplycars 10-28-2010 10:59 AM

brembo + pbr the best combo

Adrian_Lindn 10-28-2010 02:10 PM

Thank You for the help! ANyone recommend a local place for installation???

andrew.k 10-31-2010 01:44 AM

yeah.. your driveway

Hawk HPS ftw.

And FYI, Maranello BMW is a sponsor on these boards and can get you OEM parts for way less than that.

andrew.k 10-31-2010 01:52 AM

Agreed! Who cares about a little more noise? They worked great on my track car, and my DD.

Zimmermans are great by the way. I can't imagine BMW oem being any better.

i realized after i posted that lol, Thank you.

My funny answer is: Buy the cheapest set of rotors and pads you can find as 320s don't have enough power to need brakes *shiner*

Serious Answer:
Brembo Blanks and Hawk HPS all-round.

If you drive like a granny any pads will do and you probably wont notice the difference.
