  1. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I'm doing regular maintenance on our F25 and its about time to do the rear brakes. I'm planning on replacing the pads and discs, and did the rounds on YouTube videos (Thanks BAV Auto!) and went through the steps in ISTA+. Everything matched up except for torque specs. According to ISTA+, the...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    328i E90 4 door sedan. Replacing brakes and rotors. Have already purchase Zimmerman rotors. Need to purchase new front and rear brake pads. Not sure which ones to get or what brand. I'm looking for something low noise, low dust, good gripping power for everyday driving. Drive a lot on the...
  3. G20 (2019 - Current)
    So, all of this is new to me. I do not do forums, but I am desperate (and amateur as you will see). I have a 2021 M440i xdrive (overall the most impressive daily driver I have ever had by the way, just my opinion from my experience).... I drive a ridiculous amount and I need to replace my...
  4. G30 (2017 - Current)
    What’s up people?! So I have a 2017 G30 530i Xdrive (my first bimmer) and I believe I’m at the point where I need rotors. Don’t really need anything high performance, but don’t want baseline either. Googled them and was a little overwhelmed by all the brands and types. What really has me curious...
  5. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Hi everyone, Recently purchased a brand new 4 series (2021). About a week ago, I started noticing a strange whining noise which sounds like brakes but probably isn't. It sounds like it's coming from the inside of the car and only when the A/C is turned on. It doesn't appear all the time, but...
  6. General BMW Questions
    Purchased the X1 on 11/1/21 with 47k miles. 6,000 miles later brought the car in to get the rear brakes fixed by my local BMW mechanic after service warning and BRAKE light on. Mechanic is stating: - REAR PAD SENSORS READING 700 MILES OVERDUE. FRONT PAD SENSORS ARE NOT DETECTED BY SCAN TOOL...
  7. 5 Series
    So I don’t have all the details because this is a occasional problem but my brakes are squeezing at idling speed. At higher speeds if I brake down to a complete stop faster then Normal my steering wheel will shake but not all the time, this only sometimes happens. Also when normally driving for...

    Could someone tell me how to manually release the parking brake on a 2018 540d? Yesterday I got in my car and hit the button to release the parking brake. Much to my surprise, I get a warning on the screen saying that it is malfunctioning and that I need to call a dealer for service. Have yet...

  10. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    So within the past month I bought my first BMW. F30 N55, 2013 335i xDrive. I tried to purchase a Monroney label through their website but it said unable to obtain manufacturer build data. Vehicle was purchased in Colorado, it is a US Spec vehicle but was initially delivered to Germany, most...
  11. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I need to replace the rear brake pads on my 2015 328i. The dealer had also told me I would need new rotors although I am a bit dubious about that as they are smooth (he said it was due to the lines showing on them but they are not scored - it's only cosmetic as far as I can tell). The car was...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi folks. My right brake lights won't turn on. Reverse turns on. Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this? All bulbs (I'm assuming more than 1) aren't working, so I'm thinking it might be something other than bulbs. Any insight appreciated. Cheers.

  14. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    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...
  15. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Hello all, need to have my brake pads and rotors replaced on my 2014 BMW X5 xDrive35i. Any suggestions for the best brands? Thanks!
  16. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    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...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    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...

  19. 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.
