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.

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.
PLEASE keep up with excellent pictures and guide. We all appreciate it! No rush but faster is better
