Mein Auto: 2011 E92
Brake wear

I have 13k miles on my 2011 e92. I've noticed that over the years i'm gradually had to press down on my brakes more to remain at stop at red lights. Is this just how it is? At first, just touching the brakes with my foot was sufficient. Now I'm pressing them about half way down.

Check the brake fluid level. You might need to top it off or flush and change if you have had the car for two years.

Brake fluid is Hydroscopic and sucks up moisture. Changing every 2 years is a very good practice.

Thanks for posting, reminds me I need to call Tuesday and schedule a brake fluid flush and change on my Rav4.

you are still under warranty? then take it to the dealer and let them fix it for free, something is wrong, the brakes are self adjusting and your peddle should not be going that far down

Dealer visit, could have a bad Mastercylinder
