Break Pad replacement on 2010 535i xdrive
 
Hello,
I'm a newbie to bimmerfest..I have a 2010 535i xdrive sedan with 61K miles...Front and Rear brake pads need to be replaced...What is the approx cost to replace just the pads and sensor? And any recommendations for independent service shops in the Seattle/Bellevue area?

Thanks,
Shwetal M

I just had mine done by an indy in Connecticut, so can't help you with local recommendation, but here's what I paid for Akebono ceramic pads:

EUR918 BMW Brake Pads Set Front - Akebono EUR918 (1) @ $69.99 = $69.99
EUR683 BMW Brake Pads Set Rear - Akebono EUR683 (1) @ $54.77 = $54.77

34356776422 BMW Brake Pads Sensor Rear - Sadeca 34356776422 (2) @ $12.77 = $25.54
34356776421 BMW Brake Pads Wear Sensor Front (E60) - PEX 34356776421 (2) @ $12.99 = $25.

A lot of shops will also recommend that you replace the front rotors, depending on how well they have worn. My price for that was:

34116753221 BMW Brake Disc Front (525i 530i 530xi 525xi) - Zimmermann 34116753221 (2) @ $84.95 = $169.90

I supplied my own parts and the indy just charged me for labor. Of course if you're mechanically inclined, you can do the job yourself.

Why did you buy two sensors for the front and two for the back? There's only one for the front (inner pad on the drivers's side) and one for the rear (inner pad on the passenger's side).

Hmmm, I didn't realize that.
