On behalf of someone else:

Does anyone know of alternative pads to the standard BMW ones? Personal recommendations, brands, prices, where from etc..?

Presumably the brakes are the same as recent M3's?

Here is a good contact for you. A friend of mine (David Connell) runs the BMW M Power Club, tel 01784 439874. He is an M6 expert, but the club has tech experts for each type of M car. I must admit that I don't know if they have caught up with the M Roadster yet, but they definately have excellent contacts & will be able to put you in touch with the right person.

I was in the US last week and by a good stroke of fortune found myself very close to HMS Motorsport in Boston. I popped in and met Joe - very nice and helpful chap, and ended up spending far more than I intended! I went in for a window blanket (a fabric thing that stops the plastic window on the soft top creasing and scratching) - and ended up with some EBC green stuff brake pads.

I don't need them just yet, but I'll post the results when I do fit them to the car.
