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.

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.

Hawk HPS ftw.

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

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

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

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.
