X1 F48 (2016 - current)
Second generation F48 BMW X1 builds on the success of it's predecessor. Increases in power, interior and cargo space keep it a leader in the small SUV field.

2017 X1, Needs new brake pads AND rotors?

Hi all,
First-I love my X1. However, the brakes started grinding so I took it in for service. The dealership said that not only do I need new pads but also new rotors. All at my cost. I bought it CPO. Pads I understand but the rotors? Also the pad indicator / sensor never went off - the car went from fine to "needs new rotors" at 25K? This can't be right? They offered me the "service package" at $700 that I was never offered when I purchased the car to cover the pads and rotors up to 36K miles as a concession.

Thoughts? Recommendations?

Thanks!!

Get a second opinion from someone that you (can) trust.

What are the objective pad and disc replacement criteria?

Apparently pad warning is ~3.7 mm.

If it still stands (it been a long time ago) BMW standard was to change both at the same time. They wouldn’t do one with out the other.

Help us help you - some information please!
  • When did you buy the X1?
  • How many miles on it when purchased?
  • How many mile on it now?
  • Do you have your copy of the BMW CPO checklist - those items documenting that the appropriate items were checked at or before the time of sale?

No iDrive alerts BEFORE GRINDING NOISES?!?

Someone missed something ... Is this your first BMW? I'd agree - new brakes @ 25,000 miles seems soon. What's your normal driving "style" ... lots of city stop-n-go??

Where are you located??

Our 2017 X1 also required new front brake pads at 27K miles. The sensors went off and the dealer wanted to change both pads and rotors. We ended up going to an independent mechanic who recommended only changing pads. So far so good after 1K miles on new pads. Definitely doesn’t hurt getting a second opinion.

Oh for the days when the BMW warranty covered pads & rotors for 4 years...

Yes, to 2nd opin and I would find a good local Indie to do either pads or pads&rotors, vs the dlr, imo.

Like others, I am curious what mileage was on the car when you bought your 'CPO' vs how many miles since purchase.

CPO may be one of the best mkting gimmicks in used cars, since 'used cars'. Regardless of the checklist and hype, many CPO cars of any brand are given a cursory glance, maybe up on a lift, and a wash...

If you don't know how to check the pad thickness yourself, take it somewhere else to have it checked. My 2017 had the pad sensor go off at 30k miles. The driver side caliper was defective, and the inner pad wore down twice as fast as the outer.

I pulled the wheel off and looked at the pads on both sides and sent the dealer pictures. They replaced the driver side caliper and front pads under warranty. They did not replace the rotors.

If your pad sensor did not go off, you should have somebody check your pad thicknesses for you.

Our 2017 X1 brake pad warning light came on at 24,000 miles. The service advisor said that the light is based on mileage, not pad thickness. An independent brake shop found 6 mm left on pads. BMW claims that the brake pads do NOT have sensors. Is this bull sh##

There is a sensor ($30) that will trigger the system alert 2K miles more to go, then system warming after 2K miles

I wouldn't have that shop work on my brakes if they said there's no sensors. There is also a proper procedure to reset the e-brakes which I am sure they don't know how to do. Bring it to a BMW Indy shop or do it yourself to replace rotors and pads.
