Brake Pads

Anyone know where to get decent pads that fit the E30 locally? I'm in Richmond Hill, but get around the GTA quite a bit.

I had a set of Pagids that were good but don't know where to find them. What do other people run?

their located near Milvan and Finch ave.

Go to Carquest.

The part numbers for my '85 325e are:
Front - N101032798PAG
Rear - N101078366TEX
Front Rotors - N100027776BRE (Brembo)
Rear Rotors - N10001391932BRE (Brembo)

Those are supposed to be OE pads and they're not a lot...well if you have connections they're not. If you have a friend at a shop, try to get his price.

I think I'll have to give Carquest a try then! Been there for domestic parts once, but didn't realize they'd have stuff for E30s!

Thanks for all the responses!

If you make it around to Mississauga check out JRP for EBC Pads, they are the absolute best I've ever had. I had the yellowstuffs and their pretty good when cold but fantastic when hot, they go for about $100 front.
