Dog poo on the apex. should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Brake pads.

When I started track days (and then moved on to racing) brakes involved a big lever and a wooden block against a steel tyre. Or contact with the car in front.

Now, I've just bought a BMW 325i (E46). I'm going to leave it absolutely standard other than the brakes. This is mainly because the brake pedal doesn't seem to be attached to anything.

So, EBC Red Stuff, Yellow Stuff, or Ferodo 2500s, or something else...?

Depends on the tracks you are going to drive on, fast straights with heavy braking for tight corners or flowing corners with light braking, ambient temperatures, track days in the rain etc

http://www.racebrakes.co.nz/ (has a bit about brake pad 101)

http://www.ebcbrakes.co.nz/ (there is a bmw race series 'street to full race spec' in NZ, ask them what has worked in NZ temps and tracks, brake disc/ brake pad combinations)

I would suggest 'yellow' all round, after the best disc machiner in you area has machined your discs, or if you doubt the competency of the brake machiner then new discs(if that is in the budget)
