They are good but...and i found that a very BIG but, they are very dirty to use. They will cover your wheels in dust all the time!On the other hand for their price i found them extremely good!

Ya i'm waiting to install a set of mine, PAGID is the same company that BMW uses on its MOTOSPORT cars, i believe the M3 GTR, so i would believe they're pretty good pads, but i head the same downside, dirty as hell!
But oh well, theres ALWAYS a catch!

i got them on my car, bimmersport put them on for me, and i dont know why u guys say they are dirty i have yet to see any extreme brake dust on my wheels, then again i have big gaps on my wheels.

but i made the mistake not to change rotors when my pads were gone, so my car sucks in braking now. now i know why the dealership doesnt change brake pads only. but only the combo!!!

hi all!

well they are now on the car! pagid brake pad, and brambo rotors

nice combo! brake as hell if i compare with my old one! hehe i tryed some nasty hardcore brake scenario, and they do the job!



and for the dirty side.. dunno, it's tooo dark outside (3am)

and for the sensor.. the one in the frontwheel is dead.. my friend have done a bypass on it so i don't have the anoying red light for the moment.. (my bmw dealership is close for the moment) so it's will take time before i can have a new sensor!

Cheers guys!

same size, i WISH i got a BBK, can't afford that shit though, its the same size, just with brembro x-drilled, i know the x-drills don't make it brake any better, but they just look SOOOOOOOO nice!!
