FCP Groton is a trusted site by many for OEM and aftermarket parts. They have a web site and also sell on ebay. There are others but I'm not as up on them.

Not familiar with them. Others may be. Brembo is one of the better brands. Are you talking rotors, shoes, calipers?

I'm talking about the disc breaks. I heard something Brembo they are good too. But Zimmermann is from Germany and they produce breaks also for Saab, Peugeot, BMW and other cars.

Well if they are OEM on BMW's then they are probably pretty good. My dad has a 1999 540i with approximately 190K miles on it and he is still on his original shoes and rotors. The BMW dealer can't believe it.

I did over 100,000km with one set of pads & Rotors in a Subaru forester.

Good luck
