I'll do a full blown DIY on brake pads in a week or two. I don't need rotors yet so it will be pads-only for now. Brakes are probably easier to do than an oil change, and the labor savings are huge. I'll include some info on aftermarket pads available for our cars. I spent about a week researching brake pads before deciding on StopTech pads to replace my OEM pads.
YES PLEASE do a brake pad DIY. I have done before on my past Honda and it was pretty easy. Hopefully it will be about the same as a brake pad job. I just dont know why BMW charges so much for the labor for a brake job.
PLEASE keep up with excellent pictures and guide. We all appreciate it! No rush but faster is better
