Most pads come with replacement "wires" that are specific to the pads. Not all attache the same way. The wire will break when your pads wear out and your car will let you know it's time for new brakes. Not needed, but a nice to have. Mine break every GD time I change my brakes for a track day

I used Akebono (sp?) on my 335i and they were definately low brake dust, but they didn't bite as well. Proper pads depend on a lot of variables. Perhaps you could provide some details, such as budget, type of driving (track, cruising, hard street, race), and if you any other desires other than "low dust and better"
