I'm a new member but I've been a long time BMW owner.
I currently drive a 2010 BMW 116d Sport E81 with 76k which I bought really cheap with the plan of selling it on. Because of it's great condition I've decided to keep it.
My plan is to get a remap at Darkside Developments but first I...
My car has developed a clear and discernible knocking noise on very low speed braking, such as when releasing and re-applying the brakes when in heavy stop start traffic (which for me is daily). It even makes this noise just when the steering wheel is turned just slightly when the car is...
Hey guys! I'm new here from Arkansas. I have a 2015 328i base model but low miles and very clean. Got wheels and tires and now working on brakes. Having issues with rear rotor sizes. I ordered a powerstop k6744 kit with the cross drilled slotted rotors. Went to change them out and found...
Hi, I have a vibration when I brake. I took both the front brakes apart and cleaned everything to make sure everything was fitted correctly. I removed the disc and cleaned the hub etc to make sure everything was fitted ok as well. However, when I did this I noticed that the discs have lots of...
New member, hope everybody is well.
My 2016 M4 competition has only 18,000 miles on it, its been maintained regardless of cost, has new tyres, brakes are all perfect etc etc.
Recently, i've noticed a loudish scraping noise, it sounds once with every rotation of one of the wheels.
very new to this website so hoping you guys could shed some light on my problem!

A little over a week ago I had my alloys changed from the boring 18“ m sport alloys to the 19” inch diamond cut m sport alloys. Now, both alloys were stock for the...

I've got a 98 318i, completely original, and I'm looking at changing out the rear axle (subframe, trailing arms, control arms, discs & calipers, spring mounts etc..) as one unit from a breaker.
Currently I've only got drums on the rear and some rusted in, broken abs sensors, so the...
Good Afternoon :)
I picked up my baby just before xmas, and have covered over 1,000 miles already! I'm in love, however I'm thinking I need to upgrade the breaks, not for aesthetic reasons, for performance.
I've changed from a focus ST (2l petrol - 250bhp), and it just feels like the...
Hello i am new here and excited to upgrade my e46 318i and i'm stocked with questions here are a few.
I am wanting to swap my stock brake set up to a stock set up from an x5 (front and back).
Is there anything i need to look out for in this swap / is it a good idea?
Will the ecu from my 318i...
Picked up my first BMW last month. I remember thinking how firm the brake pedal was, but I was coming from smaller, single-piston calipers to the 4 pot M-Sport brakes, so thought this must be normal. They started to bite as soon as the lightest contact was made with the pedal and...
had new brake pads fitted (pagid) to my 435d but the squeaking is horrendous, and seems to be getting worse, only slow speed braking though!!
any ideas how to deal with it, or is it a cas of changing brake pads??
I have a 2010 F10 BMW 525d with 142k on the clock.
Recently when applying the brakes (and relaesing them) there ia ratchet type noise and you can feel through the pedal the 'click click click' as you press more and more pressure, especially at low speeds the brakes are not...
I have a vibration issue when I brake. The steering wheel vibrates when I brake but only once the car is warm.
To date I have had brand new alloys and tyres, all balanced and tracking done. Bushes have been checked on a shaker plate and all good.
I have been advised in could be...

Long time lurker first time poster.... never had a car worth mentioning... I am hoping for some advice/help after fitting some new brakes to my 2004 325ci manual, I have fitted Brembo Max discs, Ferodo DS2500 pads, Goodridge braided lines, fresh fancy high temp fluid and 2 new rear...
So I cleared a boat load of faults using Carly on the in-laws E91 330d 2006. These were stored faults after some breakdown balloon front supspended towed it to a independent to replace the starter motor (it’s an auto ?♂️) the engine check light was on and there were 32 faults, to do with it...
I’m having issues with the rear brakes of my 2008 325i (n53). As of a few days back the rear brakes are sticking and getting very hot.
I have ordered new discs and pads (as they don’t look to clever) and out of impulse also got two calipers on the way.
What’s bothering me is why...

I have owned my 240i for 18 months, love the car its the brakes i dont like.
just had my first service and the dealer thought perhaps with my driving style (last of the late brakers) i would be better suited with the Motorsport pads, does anybody have any experience of these as a choice?
Going to be changing the brake discs and pads on my E90 325i N53. There are 2 options:
Front - 312x24 or 330x24
Rear - 300 x 20 or 336x22
I thought that being an Msport it would have the larger brakes fitted, but it hasn't.
Is this normal?
