Hi! If it is binding brakes due to DSC etc, have you put the car on axles stand with all wheels off the ground, with the engine on, pump the brake peddle as though driving, then and go round each wheel to see if it is the control circuit binding, you should be able to turn the fronts at least, and with the hand brake off the rears, subject to the Park of the transmission, did you adjust the hand brake at all??? and did you change the brake fluid?????
I have done a lot of work on the callipers due to squealing brakes, have refurbished the callipers with new rubber guides and piston dust covers etc. Some of the rubber grommets are a pig to do, easy to get out, but you need to be a weight lifter to put the new ones in, if you don't do it first time Lol.... The dust covers are a different design on the 6 series, but can be done without the special tools.....

Always said I would go back to a 6 series
