Brake Pads & Discs Renewal

Might be in for replacing the pads and discs soon. BMW are quoting me some ridonkulous 500 for the just the pads and sensors (all round) minus the discs.

1. If I go down an independent route (indy specialist or otherwise), will this affect my BMWFSH?

2. Is this service from the stealers generate a stamp in the booklet?

3. If I go with no.1, what pads and discs should I go for and where's a competitive place to purchase? How much should I expect to pay?

Sorry to ask if it's been beaten to death!

Its a 320D.

Thanks one and all!

I have just bought this Hawk Ceramic Front and Rear set for my car, better than OEM pads

this one i think it fits your 320d since my car is 320i.

My tech recommended ceramic pads. How do they feel in really cold weather?

I got quoted $1100 CAD for discs, pads and sensors including labor at dealer. Not bad...

Im going with aftermarket rotors/pads/sensors, and getting the dealer to just do install. Its going to run me about $1000 CAD in total. Unless I decide to do the install myself in which case it should be $800.

Akebono euro ceramic pads are a good option, ill be going with the EBC Redstuff though since I want to take my car to the track this summer atleast once.

I am using the Akebono Euro ceramics. They don't stop as aggressively as the factory pads - less bite - but they are completely DUST FREE and still will slow the car well. They are not suitable for hard driving and track use, though.
