Brake pads for M brakes

Does anyone know a good place to shop for brake pads on a M (blue) caliper equipped 340i? I cant seem to find any around most seem to be for the standard brakes.

What are you looking for in a new brake pad? More initial bite? Less dust?

Turner Motorsport or ECS Tuning are good places to start.

More initial bite and overall better performing pads. I looked on ECSTuning they seem to have the rear only. Ill checkout Turner Motorsports, thanks!

That's because the pads are the same for the front. The BBK, all colors, and the Brembo 2 piston in Grey, are the same caliper. They take the same pad regardless of rotor diameter.

The rear pads for the blue, red, orange, and yellow will look like the front, but not as wide.

The rear caliper in gray, and one piston, is the outlier. And look completely different.
