    CRN's "own" discs are actually Pagid brand machined up at their workshop so you can have plain unmachined Pagid if you prefer?
    and I've always found they can price match most things so drop them a line they really are very helpful

    yes your right, the textar pads are listed on bmws website, just need to know if it is better to get the bmw sensor of a cheaper variant? then i will decide if pagid or brembo are the 1's i want?

    Well i'm in the process of replacing my pads as they have worn down! i have decided aswell to replace the discs to 2.8 spec. The car currently has the 286mm 323 discs on the front and i have ordered 300mm 2.8 discs, i already have the 2.8 carriers and the pads are the same item numbers. then there is the back, the pads are the same and it lists a bigger disc from 276 to 296 and thats where the problem is, the 2.8 carrier has the same item number as the 323 but the disc is bigger!!! so surely the carrier should be different to accomodate the bigger disc? can any 1 help me out with this and double check that i am right with my findings? it just doesn't make sense on the rear side of this.
