Bmw charges roughly $700 for pads,rotors, sensors and labour. It's a package price.

I've been trying to get some Hawk HKS pads to put on my stock rotors. Haven't found them yet, but if anyone has done this please give me your input.

Thanks

Stock calipers are fine, unless your planning on doing some crazy things with your car. If your car has a few engine mods, then you should be fine. If your planning on going the forced induction route, then I would consider a BBK.

Brembo Blanks seem to be the rotor of choice, although some believe crossdrilled/slotted are better. It really depends on your use for your car. As for pads, Hawk HPS go for around $120 for the fronts, havent found a carrier for the rear. PBR and EBC are other companies worth mentioning. Im actually installing the EBC on brembo blanks very soon.

I've got Brembo blanks and Hawk HPS on all 4 corners.
Better braking, no squeeling and alot less dust.
I really like this set-up.

Where did you source rear HPS? I called around a bunch of places and got nothing for the rear.

I installed brembo's with PBR pads, and compared to my sisters OEM pads and rotors, mine are garbage..

Next time i'm sticking to OEM.

I got my Hawk HPS pads from a member on another BMW forum.
If I recall Bimmerworld had pretty good prices for Hawk pads.
