Front pads need doing.

Post by stevei » Sat Feb 17, 2018 3:32 pm

BMW keep ringing me asking if I want them done but I will be doing them myself.
Anyone got a rough price as to how much OEM pads cost or recommend some decent others?

Cheers

I recently ordered some Textar pads, cost me approx £55 for the front ones. Bosch were around the same price too. Brembo a bit cheaper if I recall correctly.

Cheers. Where did you order them from?
Also is there anything else I need ...like new sensors ?

I got them from the Swedish https://www.onlinecarparts.co.uk/. Same company so I'm sure you'd be fine ordering from them too if the prices are better than wherever else you usually buy your parts.

It is recommended to get new brake pad wear sensors for every brake bad change. They're only like £10-15 a piece anyway.
