Replacement brakes and rotors

Ive been searching the forum and I can't find my answer to what replacement brakes to get for my 2013 335 F30. Specifically i'm up to get new rear brakes, but also want to know about the fronts for the future. My rear have been squeaking like hell ever since this Chicago winter started. What I would like is:

-No squeaks
-Less dust
-Would like slotted rotors for looks but if not no big deal
-Decent performance, im not auto crossing but would still like decent brakes.

I have the M-Sport silver/grey calipers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ive never bought brakes for my car, just let the shop choose them. Don't know if I should go Ceramic or not also.

Thanks!

I have M Sport Brakes as well. M Sport Brake pads (as well as M3 pads) are fine. The issue is contact surfaces on the brake pads need to be properly lubricated.

I did some pad work earlier today: http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...9#post21090999

I've attached a PDF but it's missing some stuff and I haven't had time to revise it yet.

Gotcha, If all the brakes need is a lube then that would be fine for fixing the squeak but still the break dust is just too crazy. I would still rather go aftermarket

Ive read through that before but it really doesn't give you many replacement options. Im trying to see what other people picked up and how it worked for them.

I can recommend the F80 M3/M4 brake pads for the front.
