328i Standard brakes upgrade help.

Hello,

Looking to see what brake pads people have used for light track duty and aggressive street/ canyon runs. Would like to have good bite but not fade fast like the OEM's.

I get brake fad quickly with the stockers and want something that will get me by another year until I upgrade the M-Performance brakes.. Trying to just keep it down to the pads and rotors have about 6K only and would like to get no noise and low brake dust options if possible.

Let me know what you guys recommend.

I've had good luck with EBC RedStuff. Very low dust, very little noise, good bite and modulation. Have used them for a few track days and they hold up well, expect to get WAY more miles out of them than the stocks.

As far as fade resistence goes fluid flush or upgrade is what I'd do first, but new fluid and new pads together make a remarkable difference. When is the last time you had that flushed? With all those power mods you're definitely getting a lot of heat into it, and with that, a lot of moisture.

Do you have part numbers of what you used?

Did you replace pads and rotors?

Yeah, I just changed my brakes out a few thousand miles ago and use Motul RBF fluid. Was looking at EBC yellow's as I ran those on my Motorcycle and love the feel. Looking into other pads as well.
