    i haven't read through the whole thread but i've got CRN grooved discs with pagid pads and they're fine,no warping at all,330's are known for discs warping so don't get the cheap ebay stuff you'll regret it in the end

    personally i would'nt buy unbranded discs espacially as they're the things to stop you hitting a wall and not good on cars with 200bhp +

    I'd go for these.
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    Chaps old thread I know, and my question is partly answered but not directly so I will ask:

    Whats better to go for in this situation:

    Meyle - £122 all around
    Pagid - £98 all around
    or Brembo ones linked above which I think will come in around £100 all around

    Is it worth the extra? or shall i use the difference to pay for pads?

    and also is it worth the extra cost of upgraded carriers and just go for larger disks?

    I have a 320i (2.2).
