  1. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    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...

  3. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Can anyone tell me what the part numbers are for front and rear Akebono pads for my 2012 X5 50i or what site carries them? Seems it should be a simple search but I have spent several evenings searching for them with no luck. I am looking for a low dust ceramic pad and settled on the Akebono...

    Last fall I installed a set of Hawk Performance Ceramic brake pads and Centric Rotors on the front of my 530-I with SP. At that time I also replaced 100% of the brake fluid. Several weeks ago I replaced the rear pads and rotors with the same brand. AWESOME is how I would describe my driving...

    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. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So I purchased a 2007 E60 550i this February with very few miles, < 6,000. The Car did not have a mark on it and of course still smelled brand new. That being said I want to keep it that way and at times it sits in the garage for weeks on end. Nevertheless when I did drive it, I could not...
  8. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Good day, Has anyone updated any of their controls from standard to ceramic? If so, can you tell where you got the parts (part numbers) and if the job was easy to do? I think I would really like to change my shifter and iDrive controls to ceramic. :thumbup:

  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have some awful squealing from my breaks and I am going to replace them(even though they still have a crap load of life on them still). I assume that they squeal so bad because they are cheap pads. Rotors have some ware and groves (light). I know that drilled and slotted rotors are not...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Got my tint today, 30% in the back, 50% front windows. It looks totally not like what I expected. I thought (judging by film samples) that it would be charcoal gray. Instead, when the sun shines directly on the window, it gets very bluish hue when watching through it from inside. The installer...
