    Hi guys, i have got a new warning for the rear brake pads on my X1, i assume they have worn and they need changing. I have done 18,000 miles and didn't think they would wear this quick. My car is a lease and I assumed they would be covered by my lease/maintenance agreement but when I took it to...

    I recently (last month) put in new front brake pads and rotors. My rear brake pads are about 4mm. I do want to change them soon but wanted some advise as how many miles can I drive before changing them? When I apply brakes does it applies brakes both front and rear or mostly the front? TIA

    First post here. I should've joined 4 years ago. • A local BMW shop quoted me $1,800 for front brake service. They've been replacing them "free" while under a lease, but that's over now. • This will be the 4th set of brakes for my (wife's) 2016 X1. It has 80,000 miles approx. • Upset with the...

    I need front brakes and I am thinking about installing ceramic brake pads. The stock brake pads put out so much dust I would like some relief from the constant cleaning. I realize that this is a 5,000+ car and I still want it to stop when I push on the brakes. Anyone have any experiences with...

    Good Morning Guys, On Saturday I had my ‘Pads and Discs’ changed on the car and all of a sudden the ‘Parking/Hand Brake’ has stopped working. :cry: It has not stopped working altogether however it has become less stiff/rigid after the new ‘Pads and Discs’ were fitted.:thumbdwn: I know this...

    Got my 2013 X1 back from my mechanic after getting front brakes replaced (70k). Leaving the lot the suspension on the front right was crunchy/loud. Mechanic later diagnosed saying the strut bearing plate was to blame and had nothing to do with recent work. Has anyone else had this happen after...

    I'm getting ready to replace the OEM pads on my 2005 e86. Yes they are OEM as it only has 55K miles on the clock. I have green EBC sport pads that are going in and I may/may not turn the rotors depending upon the looks of them or if there is much of a lip. I also ordered both sensors as what...

    I just dropped off my 2011 BMW X5 for service (multiple recalled parts). While they were doing the 200pt inspection, they said that my front break pads are just under 3mm and should be replaced. I had my buddy (car guy) look at them before and he said they are fine..."plenty of pad left"...

    I have a 2011 BMW 328 xDrive. My brake light came on and I started to check my brake pads to see if theyre worn...Theyre all good but I noticed wires hanging from my front left wheel well. I understood that my brake sensor somehow fell off and got ripped off by the wheel. My questions is which...
  16. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Happy 4th! I had 'red' brake light came on, went to mechanic and learned that all 4 front/rear brake pads, rotors, sensors need to be replaced. I got a quote for $1650 for labor/parts + tax. Is this somewhere in the ballpark#? I'm waiting a callback from my dealer to see the price difference...

    Hello, I have been searching the forums for info on the Porterfield R4-S pads for my 2003 BMW M3 and found limited information on those pads. Everything posted seems to say they are great but they seem to be from the same person. I was wondering if others have tried them and what experience have...
