As weird as this may sound, I bought discs from Amazon last week - they were Brembo discs, surprisingly well priced, and were shipped to me by Brembo UK.

For pads, I got Pagid ones from EuroCarParts. I also got a caliper from them a couple of years ago (it's still behaving itself)!

Hi can anyone from experience tell me if the mtec discs are good ! is there any chance of them warping under hard driving condition ect and what would be best style to go for i.e dimpled and grooved,slotted,drilled and grooved ect

Just because the caliper is sticking does not mean you need a new one. Normally it is possible to overhaul them.

Good OEM discs, and then choose good pads.
It's the quality of the discs that is the most important, not the number of drill holes, or number of groove etc.
A good value option if you want something a little sporty is ATE Power discs, usually about the same or a little more than standard discs from ECP/GSF etc.
Brembo OEM spec will be fine too

Just got some disks off mtech, having them fitted in the morning with Mintex pads, £500 cheaper all in than BMW doing it so worth a try, heard all good things on them tho. Gone for dimpled ad grooved in silver to match my read coded brake hubs. Not fussed re the grooves etc but that's all they do unless I wanted drilled.

Well their on and their pretty good, the silver paint was on the disc gave too so waiting for that to totally burn off the disc and pads before I really get a feel for them but I'm sure they'll be just like the originals which is fine. Bloody car won't acknowledge they are fitted though, despite new sensors fitted and trying to reset the pad sensor timers.. Front still reads 7000, rears now says -------- and I have a red car on a ramp :(
