Cost of replacing brakepads

I have a 2007 335is just want to know a ball park figure of the cost to replace the brake pads. Also are you better off going to a indy BMW place or a generic brake place ? Thanks .

DIY....Akebono Ceramic Pads, Meyle rotors, sensors. Cost around $350.00.

Get pads from Amazon.com. Get everything else from FCPeuro.com.

If you have not changed rotor in last 30000km recommend that you change rotors as well as they get too thin and not safe during hard braking

Add $250 - $300 for four rotors

Don't order parts for a 2007IS, the IS model did not come out till 2011 when BMW was converting to N55's but still wanted a N54 performance engine in the lineup.

Search the parts places and you will find out what it cost. If your sensors are not worn no need to replace them

You want good pads? Get some Textars. They're not expensive and you won't be sorry. I just put them on my rears. No braker fade, quiet, and less dust (at least noticeably less).

I assume he wants to be able to brake, not just have cleaner wheels. Stick to OE or Textar.

We've had my car running OE-TYPE pads made by AK. We have had the same set for 20k miles and are at about half pad with 4 track days visited, with pads that out performed the originals

Textars will still stop you on a dime and are very high quality. Used on all Mercedes as OEM.

You've discovered a material that is hard, yet at the same time soft? I would love to hear about this magical compound, that will survive 4 track days + 20k miles, yet has the bite of OE pads.

No matter what pads you get, you can lock up the wheels at any time with this car.

Good advice to check your rotors. BMW rotors are sacrificial and typically will not meet min spec if you need pads. I went from OEM to Cool Carbon ceramics based upon lower dust (mine is a 2007 and BMW changed pad compounds to dust less in 2010) and work just fine in my E93 335 as well as both my BMW M3's. However I don't track any of my cars. Initial cold bite is not as good as stock but once you have a little heat in them they outperform the stock pad. I think the new OEM pads with less dusting is the best choice...

That's what I'm going with when I tackle my brakes soon.
I still have the factory brake components from 2007, those original pads make my wheels dirty in one day of use.
