    Black Diamond do a large range of discs from 6groove through to multi groove/cross drilled and they also have a performance DOT4 brake fluid.

    i'm running EBC turbo discs and redstuff pads on my 330d e46. Have been for about 5k miles.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! - They're probably not for everyone as they're not great when cold, but they're fantastic when warmed up. When i say "not great" they do stop, perfectly fine, just takes a fair push on the pedal. But when they're warm they're so damn grippy!!

    Also, amazingly low amount of brake dust, like little to none!

    The turbo discs make an AWESOME noise when braking too, kinda like when you used to put a coke can on your bicycles tyre - brrrrrrrrrrrrrr. With a bit of a "whooooooooo" on hard braking.


    Came round a bend a bit eager with my mate in the passenger seat who drives a big, fairly powerful Audi boat, and another car came the other way, caught us both by surprise - slammed on and he was AMAZED. Said it felt like we'd stopped (we hadn't, quite) and was seriously impressed with how "responsive" my car was.

    If you hate brake dust (my OEM pads and discs made my wheels black in about 100 miles) and you can remember that cold brakes need a bit more pedal, and you don't mind (or even love, like i do) the noise they make then I can't recommend them enough.

    Can safely say the EBC brakes have saved a couple of horses around my area of the Countryside! lol.
