  1. General BMW Questions
    Purchased 4 Genuine BMW rotors about a year ago. One had quite a bad quality - the surface on the inner chamber had a circular cut/groove and the rotor had black grease spots all over. What company makes them for BMW in USA?

    So my brakes are due on my newly purchased 2008 550i w/ M Sport Package (suspension/wheels/aero). I've decided to save the money and do the job myself - I've done pads many times but this will be first time doing rotors. Seems that Zimmerman/Akebono are the recommended combination however I'd...

    Hi Guys, My first post here. Glad to join this community. I have a quick question. I drive a 2011 Alpina B7 and just got the Brake light on. Took the car to the dealership and they told me that I need to replace the brake pads and rotors. They want to charge me over $1200 for this job. But I...

    I'm getting ready to change brake pads and rotors, and have seen conflicting advice on the lubricants to use. 1) Like many others, I had trouble getting the wheels off-- eventually solved with a sledgehammer, but would have been a problem on the side of the road. Bavauto's video recommends...

    Hello Bimmerfest family. I'm new on the site. Want to start by thanking everybody for the awesome information shared in the site. I have a 2008 550i hand me down vehicle from my brother.

    I've Just replaced my front Rotors, and Pads because I've been chasing a "womp-womp", and they where ready go in general. (New Rotors, and Pads are: Zimmerman Rotors, BMW Pads.) I've replaced the passenger side Bearing as part of my trouble shooting, and seem to have weeded out the noise on that...

    Greetings, I'm smack in the middle of doing a front brake job on my '98 528. I am having an issue with removing the rotors. I have removed the 7mm allen head retaining bolt. And then had to beat on the rotor a little with a hammer to break the corrosion that formed between it and the...

    I have a new 2012 BMW 335i. I'm looking for better braking performance. Can i replace my stock rotors with after market slotted ones and replacement performance pads or will that break something ? like regenerative braking, or something else?
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I know it's new, but I've never been known for leaving well enough alone. I know the BMW engineers know way more than I do, but the performance I've gotten from slotted rotors on previous bmws's always seemed better than stock. So here is the question... Can I change the stock rotors and pads...
