Mein Auto: 2009 323i
323I Brake Pads

Hi I am new to bimmerfest. I purchased a 2009 323I BMW last year. My front brake pads are wearing out however I find that their is a limited selection online in purchasing for the 323I model. I was wondering if the 328I would fit? Since I am still deciding on the Hawk HPS or Akebono.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

I messed when I assumed that my front brakes on my 2007 323i were the same as a 328i. The ones on my 323i were actually larger (312 vs 300mm rotor).

On 2008, the 328i was upgraded to 312mm.... unsure about 323i 2009... check on realoem.com for compatibility.

I have good experience with Akebono. No more crazy dust.

Thanks for the help! I was able to find the part number of realoem and searched Google for some Akebono. I can't stand the dust on the oem's. Thanks for the recommendation!
