I went with Zimmerman rotors and BMW (Textar branded) on rear and Akebono pads and Zimmerman on front. I also had some light squealing in the rear for a week or two until the pads bedded in. I would've gone Akebonos front and rear but none were available when I had to do the maintenance for the rear. Akebonos seem to perform just as well as the BMW pads with less brake dust.
