    Hello all, need to have my brake pads and rotors replaced on my 2014 BMW X5 xDrive35i. Any suggestions for the best brands? Thanks!
  2. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I recently (last month) put in new front brake pads and rotors. My rear brake pads are about 4mm. I do want to change them soon but wanted some advise as how many miles can I drive before changing them? When I apply brakes does it applies brakes both front and rear or mostly the front? TIA

    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 all, 2013 535ix, 67k miles, and the front pads are over 6mm (according to the dealer). I'm getting pulsing when braking at highway speeds, so it's probably time for new rotors. The car is stock and a daily driver, so I'm looking at Zimmermans from FCP. The DIY looks pretty reasonable. I...

    Hi folks. I live in Ottawa, Canada, much cold weather than USA in winter. I have a leasing car 320i xDrive 2017 with only 28000km, The service alert light has been on for awhile indicating the rear brakes need service. The surface of rear rotors looks not so smooth with visual scoring, grooves...
  7. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Hi all, First-I love my X1. However, the brakes started grinding so I took it in for service. The dealership said that not only do I need new pads but also new rotors. All at my cost. I bought it CPO. Pads I understand but the rotors? Also the pad indicator / sensor never went off - the car went...

    Hey All, Looking to replace the rear and fronts at about 75K on my F30 2014 328i xDrive. The Brake light has come on for the rears, the front for now have about 6k left as per the system info screen. I think I want to replace all four at the same time though. Debating between Akebono vs OEM...
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I changed my front pads and rotors about 15,000 miles ago and it appears the brakes only squeal when the weather gets cold (ie below freezing temp). The squealing happens in the last few seconds as you come to a stop. Very annoying for me and the people that ride with me. Rotors and pads were...

    BRAKE PADS WONT FIT AROUND ROTOR. I'm a little confused. I took off my pads and rotors and now putting it all back together, the pads will fit in the caliper but there's no room for the rotor to slide in there. I don't see anything different from when I removed them......? What am I missing? I'm...

    Hello fellow GT Headz, So my 2012 GT front rotors seem to be warped as I feel a vibration on my steering wheel when I hit the brakes at highway speeds only (55+mph) only, otherwise, car feels fine and no vibration or shakes in regular city driving. I did get it confirmed at a local BMW go to...

    Hey Guys, Im new here, I work on german cars regularly for friends and family, and i just found out about this website www.crossdrilledrotors.ca which sells brake rotors and pads, never heard of them before, the price was good (bought a front set of drill slot rotors and pads for under 240 all...
  15. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I have around 46k on my 535ix. It is due for brake and rotor change. Is it mandatory to change the rotor along with the brake pads? Would changing the brake pads alone work? One of the mechanic suggested that change brake pads every 40k and rotors every 80k. Any advice?
  16. F12 / F13 (2012 - 2018)
    Hey Guys, Just as per the title - what's your opinions on life expectancy on brake discs? I bought the car with 10,000 miles on the clock. The car had some serious vibrations that needed dealing with (3 of the alloys were buckled). BMW ended up replacing the alloys after a lot of pestering...
