Going to buy brakes. Need advice

Hey Im just about to order a full brake kit for my 2001 330ci which includes pads, rotors, sensors and shims all around. I am in Canada and im looking for a decent price for a full kit.

So far the best one I have found is a Centric full kit for Just under $330 shipped includes tax.

Good kits from ECS or PelicanParts will run me $500+ with the shipping to Canada, and thats for Zimmermann or ATE parts. I did some research and Centric seems to be getting more good reviews than bad. I just wanted to get some more recent opinions on the centric premium pad and c-tek rotor combo on a 330ci. I found a few sources who say that Centric is the mother company of stop-tech. That should be a good sign. Let me know what you guys think I should do. Thanks
