Default Brakes

What are people suggesting these days for rotors and pads? I do not want to do brackets and e46 rotors. Just looking for the best option for spirited on road driving in all conditions. Do a fair number of longer road trips from Portland to LA so want less fade on hot summer days. But it is driven daily by myself when I am actually home, and my wife drives it from time to time to take the kids to school when I am on work travel. Only superfluous request is LOW dust. Thanks in advance and I am sorry I have been away for a while... I think I have flown over 150k miles since I was last on here...

Are you actually getting fade with stock brakes?

For this type of driving I would do Brembo blank rotors and PFC street compound pads.

I’ve use Zimmerman rotors and Stoptech pads for street and HPDE. They were fine and I didn’t have any fade, even on tracks. I am trying DBA rotors and PFC08 for track now and are even better. But I still switch back to Stoptechs for street.

PFC Z-rated. Low dust. Great all around pad. I use them on the occasional HPDE weekend too. Def sacrifice some track performance for convenience of not swapping. More than plenty for street.

Default Re: Brakes

I'd recommend Genuine BMW rotors, aka Zimmerman. Whatever metal processes they use is just better among the blank rotor options out there.

Any dustless pad is going to negatively effect brake bite. As long as you're ok with that... I normally buy Stoptech pads. They are cheapish and quiet. I don't have any favorite pad other than OEM are the best for street braking, but the worst with dust.
