What brakes, pads and rotors to use for daily driver 535i xdrive

Like the title, I was looking at rock auto, unsure of what to get, first time changing brakes on this car. Should I do any sort of upgraded brakes without going big brake conversion...

Donít buy drilled or slotted rotors. They are noisier and eat pads faster. Still with Zimmerman rotors and either Pagid or Textar pads.

I would get EBC pads and rotors!! They are great and have lots of stopping power!

I just installed OEM rotors and pads. New brakes feel awesome. I'd say stay OEM.
