Best replacement brake rotors and pads

It is time for my 2016's X1 2.8 to have all of it's rotors and pads changed.

I used a Zimmerman/Textar combination on my 650GC and am happy with them (even though it took a while for squealing from one wheel to disappear), but I am wondering if there is a better setup I should buy for the X1.

Thanks

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.
