Should I buy authorized BMW disc brake pads for $124 both front pads - vs. Good quality porcelain brake pads from "Auto Zone" $58 both front pads? ("Auto Zone" also sells cheaper pads into the $24.00 range)
Authorized BMW Parts Dept do not sell porcelain brakes, BMW Parts Dept. Tells me that porcelain brakes are too hard of a surface and decrees stopping power. They also say that porcelain will squeak. I'm not too concerned about the price, but do porcelain breaks decrees stopping power. I like the idea of porcelain also because I hear that there is no black brake dust left on your rims that needs to be washed off all the time at the car wash. Is this just a sales pitch to buy genuine BMW parts for twice as much money at the dealership? Or is it unwise to buy anything else besides authorize BMW brake pads that believe that damn black dust on my rims?
have the same problem?
