    This should be a fairly simple job, as it has been on previous cars I have carried this out on! Just to be sure, does anyone have a link or guide to replacing the front pads - things to look out for etc?

    They are quite easy to replace. Will be the same as other BMW models where you need a 7mm hex spanner to undo the calliper guide bolts. Btw, you will definitely need a wear sensor otherwise you will get a CC ID error when you try and reset the the pad service on the idrive.

    Wear sensor is a separate part. What have you ordered exactly?
