    Hi guys-the brake sensor light is showing on the dash of my 2002 318TI so i think im due replacement pads all round. I was wondering of anyone has any opinions/recommendations on brand/model of pads, ie are there any i should try and find/avoid? I've seen the APEC ones online and they seem good value, has anyone used these? Also, the light came on about 100 miles ago, does anyone know how many miles of moderate driving i'll get out of these pads before they disintegrate?!

    Thanks, any input is really appreciated!

    Oh and Merry Christmas!

    Toby

    Stick with OE manufacturers like Textar, Jurid, ATE. Avoid cheap makes like Mintex.

    I hadn't been on euro car parts before, that site is the dogs! cheers guys. another question im afraid-is there a wear sensor for each set of pads or is it one for the front & and one for the rear? euro car parts only sells singles for the front and i wasnt sure. thanks in advance!
