  1. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    First of all, sorry if this is a repost, I'd appreciate any links or ideas. I just changed my rotors on my 2006 330i yesterday myself and now my car won't start. I can get the car into start - with headlights on, interior lights on, I can navigate the dash, etc. However, when I try to crank or...
  2. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi, My dealer just replaced all four brake pads and resurfaced the rotors. Charging $750 at the rate of $150/hr. Is it normal for this job to take 5hrs? Thanks, Ash.
  3. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Having reached 50k miles, my understanding is that this is considered time for a brake service (which as is well-known, is quite pricey). I knew this was coming when purchasing the vehicle and got a really good price, accordingly, so I'm not in for a shock. The real question is whether there is...
  4. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey, everyone. I would really appreciate some honest feedback. I recently took my Z3 (which you may know is basically an E36) to an indy BMW mechanic who has many great reviews, along with a couple of critical ones if you search long enough in the various forums. I've owned BMWs for some time...

    Today, the topic came up about the extender bar needed for the 7mm hex for the lower rear caliper bolts on the I6 E39: > E39 (1997 - 2003) > Removing the Rear Brake Caliper Guide bolt And, in the bestlinks, there are no threads listed; there are just posts: - What tools are needed for a...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My apologies, I had mistakenly posted this in the DIY forum (sorry... new guy!)... re-posting here. Thanks! ----- I am familiar with all the pros and cons between ceramic and semi-metallic brake pads (i.e. cost, dust, performance, wear, etc.), however, I have not been able to find any concrete...
  7. 6 Series DIY
    I recently replaced my front pads and rotors on my 2005 645CI, thanks to Yorgi's detailed write up in the DIY section. At first I did not replace the wear sensor since it had not alarmed, bur right after I finished the replacement and attempted to reset the interval, it immediately went to...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I'm currently in the process of purchasing new pads and discs for my 2003 330i. and was looking at several diffrent options for both. I won't track the car just looking for a more responsive\aggresive street package and wanted any feed back I could get on these pads or other recommendations...
  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi Everyone, I was told a month ago by dealer that its time to replace brakes. Now that I have an appointment with them about the SES light & I was debating upon utilizing this to get brake job done as well or doing them myself; I called their parts department to get a quote for parts. Guess...
