Need New Rotors and Pads Now!!

Hi Guys, have been trying to decide what rotors and pads to pick up. I am doing 95% street driving, winter and summer. Not looking for high performance, but something in between.

BTW: have any of you used Raybestos pads/rotors?

Front and Rear Rotors and Pads:
EBC: $798.09
Raybestos: $598.75
BMW (installed) : $791.76
Zimmerman: $566.95 (+ shipping??)

Help please, need to make a call by this weekend as the car is going in for winter prep and I would like to get the brakes done at the same time.

Thanks
Shane

I have used Raybestos, its okay. I have a set of Wagner ThermoQuiets which I think work great for everyday driving. PM me if you want a set of pads/rotors (I work at a parts company)

I'll just get BMW ones.

Don't get the racing ones- they won't work effectively until they are warmed up.
