  1. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    Hi all. I am a true NooB to this forum and my new X5M. I traded my 15 year old Roushcharged F150 to get it too. It needs brakes up front and I am finding there are 2 sizes for the X5 and 2 size calipers2e. What I am looking for is the diameter in mm for the monster front rotors that fit the...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    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...

    Hi everyone, I'm a proud owner of my BMW 2020 330xi, however I can't help but notice some abnormal wear on my front driver's side rotor. I first noticed it after the first car wash at about 200 miles, but I didn't think too much of it. Now after about 1000 miles, I can definitely feel the...
  4. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi just recently my car (e46 02 330i) was making a high pinch noise only at low speeds. I took it to the mechanic and we figured out it was the front brakes and rotors. Got those changed but now sometimes when i brake and let go there's a grinding noise. I read the other forums and it seems to...

    With the m sports package how do you know or can find out the size of the break rotors for replacement. Will the wheels have to be removed and measured? m sport rotors I am assuming 370x30mm front rear 345x24mm. from brake parts offering sites OEM rotors vs. Slotted and drilled non OEM. OEM...
  6. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I'm thinking about purchasing these gold brake rotors/pads from PowerSport sold at Amazon. Does anyone have any experience with these? And are gold brake rotors worth it - is it hard to retain the shiny gold-ness...
  7. F80/F82/F83 M3 and M4 (2015 - Current)
    Had issues with the stock OEM brake pads overheating and causing pad transfer during track use. Has anyone tried the other BMW or aftermarket brake pad options for the F80/F82? Pagid? Carbotech? PFC BMW 34112284765 (still available?) How'd they work? How noisy? Using on the street too? Cost?
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I just replaced the front brake rotors and pads with a Brembo and Pagid combination from Bavarian Auto. The job seemed to go well, and I had a helper who has done it before on his car. After driving home, I took a look, and the outboard pads on both sides seem to be very angled, so...

  10. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I recently acquired a 2001 X5 and the rotors were so terrible that when braking the car felt like you were riding a paint agitator. It was ridiculously violent. The day I got the car, I replaced the front rotors and reinstalled the existing pads with the brand new rotors. I didn't apply lube to...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I searched a while back and found nothing on rebuilding M5X and S5X oil pumps, only a rotor kit for the 4 cylinders. So for future searches from other people I'd figure I'll post the part numbers off of real OEM that I used to buy the parts from pelican. Very easy to do, and a lot cheaper then...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    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...
  13. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Sometime ago, my back brake sensor is broken. The mechanic said it's normal to have brake warning light on because of it. After there are plenty of brake pad left at the rear, I didn't replace it for some time. Then come this month and I realize the front brake doesn't sound right. Checked...
  14. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I noticed a while back that the driver rear rotor was rusted, even just after a trip, while all the other rotors were pretty shiny. My guess is that the driver side rear brake is not working properly, thus the brake pad is not removing the rust as it should during brake application. The PO have...

  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    My brake wear sensor went off at 107,000 miles. I got the car at 58K so I assume these are the original pad/rotors. I am thinking akebono pads which I can get a Advance Auto using the 41% coupon code. My question is that they have a few pricier rotors from Wagner and Beck/Arnley. If I can...
  17. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I had my '06 750i in for service yesterday. Among some other work that was performed, the front brake pads and rotors were replaced. The rear brakes were inspected and the tech noted that the rotor thickness was 22.5mm. He also noted that replacement is required at 22.4mm. Rear brake pad...

    $1520 for front axles replacement. My 325xi is 2003 and they had my front axles replaced and charged me $1520. And also they told me I need brake pads and rotor replacement when I don't even hear any sound or any indication. When do I need to change rotors for BMW cars? Can I just take it to...
