ATE Power Discs? Any good?

I need new rotors/pads for my E30...i am new to bmws so i have no clue what's good and what isn't. From some research it seems as if the ATE Power Discs are the best bang for the buck.

Now where can i find these, and what pads should i mate them with? Any good bmw shops around the North York area that have a good selection of parts for reasonable prices?

Get stock "blank" rotors and EBC Greenstuff pads.

the ATE Powerslot rotors look stupid behind the wheels, and you will not notice any difference (aside from the lighter wallet)

^ What he said. The stock braking system is more than adequate for M20 powered street use, and some new rotors and medium bite pads will be a good compromise between long life and performance (not to mention less brake dust).

Noisy? Who cares man. Between the valve tick, loud exhaust, and music, the "bit noisey" things on a E30 dissappear. Trust me, my pads are pretty loud when cold, but I don't care anymore.
