There are people here who have done it. My understanding is that you'll be in the neighborhood of around $2k for the upgrade.

Dealership should be able to get the part within a week unless it's in national back order. CA dealership typically will get parts faster as one of BMW's distribution centers is located in Ontario CA.

I bought zinc coated Brembos from Oembimmerparts.com and I can confirm they are exactly the same as original BMW parts. Stamping, vanes, flash, etc all matched.

Doesn't seem that bad? Sounds like you're guessing much like the alignment guys about the accident. Those caster numbers are horrible.

Yes if the roads there are crowned. This is done by adding or reducing caster on one side. Typically a perfectly zero'd out alignment will mean your vehicle will pull to the outside of the road.

I'm not sure of Uganda highway standards but here in the US, all interstate highways and city streets must meet 1.5-2.0% slope or crown mandates so not sure where you are getting your info.

I would disagree with ePad not having bite. It's only slightly less than the Original pads. It's actually light years better than all the other aftermarket pads I've tried.
