Brembo standard (aftermarket) brakes?

I have to replace the rear brakes on my 2015 X5 35d soon. iDrive says a few hundred left, optically it looks like there is quite some meat left on the pads but they do make some noise already, so I guess there is some uneven wear going on...
Anyway, I've been looking around for the best pad/rotor options and came across a well priced set of Brembo standard (non M-Performance) brakes (pads, rotors and sensor) for our car. Does anyone have experience with these?
In the various threads about aftermarket brakes I haven't seen these mentioned before. My main concerns are squealing, excessive dust or excessive rust of the rotors...

At $200 they seem like a good deal from a reputable brand. The labor at my indie mechanic would be at least another $200, making it a $500 gamble, so I'm hoping someone here has given these a shot before?

Here's the link:

I'm using Brembo rear rotors and Powerstop Z23 pads on the back of my 50i. No issues.
