    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 have a 2017 230i xdrive with 68000 miles. Looks like it is time to replace the brakes... I bought the car as a cpo with 14000 miles on it, so I assume these are the original pads. I mainly put highway miles on the car, driving approximately 60 miles a day. This is my everyday driver and I...

    Hey friends... Back in December just after Christmas I bought an e91 wagon. I love the car.. But it has been a bit of a pig so far. I lost brake pedal pressure and put the car up for a couple of months. Now I have taken the bottom protecting shield off.. And search'd for leaks all over...

  6. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Some assclown just gave me a $2400 quote to do the rear brake lines as they are rotted out. I can do it myself but it will be a pain in the ass, please tell me this isn’t a realistic price.

    Just finished replacing all four brake pad sets and rotors on my 2015 535i X Drive. MUCH easier than I thought and did it for less than $500. Some good You Tube videos and torque values from BMW made the job about 3/4 of a day in my garage. Bought an entire kit from PowerStop (K6023) Z23...

    Last night I realized that I need new brakes (shakes at high speeds) I want to do the m5 upgrade on my 2013 550i But my budget is only 2.5k and from my research you only need the tronik adapter for bracket to get everything to fit right i also looked into the idea of doing the EURO style...

    Hi guys. We just replaced our front rotors/pads after brake light coming on. We were having horrible shaking before, which went away with rotor replacement. Problem now is that as soon as we tested brakes, we're getting an awful low pitched grinding nose when driving sometimes and also when...

    I have a 2006 X3 E83 with about 110k miles. Front brakes replaced a few years ago by indie shop and the brake sensor just went off for the rears. Rears were last replaced at about 65k by dealer. I've never done my own brake job on a BMW before. I wasn't impressed with the work the local shop...

    2009 335i Conv has an occasional squeaking noise from the left rear wheel. Usually starts after applying the brakes and starting to roll again. Not while brakes are on. It's always intermittent like something is not true. To be honest I haven't taken the wheel off to look around but hoped...
  17. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I purchased a 2017 440 xi last week which is still under the CPO warranty. I have a question re what the brake life should be on a CPO vehicle: My understanding is that CPO vehicles go through a lengthy inspection process before they can be sold as CPO vehicles. My onboard display tells me...

When the engine is off and I pump the brakes, they tighten...
