  1. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hi all, just a quick one, is there an alternative to Akebono pads? I'm in the UK and they are nearly impossible to source. I'd have to import from the US, and pay shipping, tax, handling charges etc making them about two to three times the cost. Just wondering if there is an alternative...

    Can anyone tell me what the part numbers are for front and rear Akebono pads for my 2012 X5 50i or what site carries them? Seems it should be a simple search but I have spent several evenings searching for them with no luck. I am looking for a low dust ceramic pad and settled on the Akebono...
