Can I assume it's the same proceedure on a '08 335i ? Brakes are coming due in the next couple of months and I'd love to try and change them myself.


I think the 335i has the exact same front caliper and pad size as the 6 series. Rears calipers are similar but a little smaller. These instructions will work fine with almost any current BMW.

If you are doing the rear rotors, the torque value for the bolts that hold the carrier to the trailing arm is 65Nm (48 lb-ft) not 110Nm like on the 6er.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
