I put Balo Rotors and Textar pads all the way around on the '90 300E and they are absoultely perfect. If you stick with the OEM suppliers mentioned in the thread you can't go wrong. Just avoid aftermarket combinations designed to reduce brake dust. Those are harder compounds and could squeeeeeeeeak!
I much prefer to have the smooth, original feel and clean the wheels more often.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
