2008 E90 Sedan  [0.00]
Could you PM me prices for a complete kit for front brake (pads, rotor, sensor) for 2008 Sedan E90 328i ship to 68154?

Pads: Ceramic Akebono
Rotor: ECS
Sensor: OEM
Install kit: (is it required?) -- going to have indy store do it.
Stainless Steel Brake Lines: (is it required?)

And looks like the rotor is still out of stock for about a month? What's the warranty period on it if there's any?

Thanks.

I have the ECS slotted/crossdrilled rotors, Akebono Ceramic pads, & SS lines on my E92 - one of the best mods I ever did

I had to wait till the maintenance warranty ran out so as to not void the brakes & did the install myself.

The Akebono's are virtually dust-free & I really don't notice too much of a difference in braking performance. Plus they are 'rotor friendly' so rotors will last much longer. I've had them on now for 8 months and there is no lip worn into the rotors - with the OEM rotors/pads there would already be a noticeable lip

Not having to clean totally black wheels 2X/week (due to brake dust) & rustfree rotors (due to the coating) is a plus...

Update: So last year I did the rear brakes GEOMET rotors and red stuff pads. This week I ordered the front setup and just got my front rotors and pads this past Friday. FAST shipping!

Stay tuned for pics of the front brake job!

What's up forum!

Here is an update on the front brake job.

New drilled and slotted rotors (ECS Tuning), Red Stuff Pads (Amazon) great price, sensor, & stainless brake rotor screw:

The truth is I didn't need a break job but I had done the rear rotors last year and decided it was time for all 4 to be the same.

The 1 small setback that I need to figure out and I have read its a common issue, all of sudden the brakes are SQUEAKING! For the last 89K miles no issue and then NEW brakes and squeaking, its driving me mad...

Besides the squeaking which I know is a common issue. I LOVE me the drilled rotors front and back, great bite and easily 75% less dust with the red stuff pads. Thanks ECS for fast shipping and great product!

miamimbj did you bed in the RedStuffs? They require a "hot" bed in procedure to mate them with the rotor and quiet them down. Below is a quote from our "brake pad bedding procedures" pdf

Originally Posted by ECS Brake Pad Bedding Procedure
Bring the vehicle up to 60 mph and lightly apply the brakes a few seconds at a time to bring them up to

operating temperature.

After getting them warmed up, make a series of 8-10 near-stops. Do this by firmly pressing the brake
pedal from about 60 mph down to about 10 mph not allowing the vehicle to come to a complete stop. If
you allow the vehicle to come to rest, you run the risk of allowing hot brake pad material to imprint to
the rotors and inhibit the bed in procedure. Allow a minute or two between near-stops to help regulate
brake temperatures. After you have completed these near-stops drive the vehicle at road speed long
enough to allow the brakes to cool down, and repeat the series of 8-10 near stops again.

Thank you very much for the info. When I leave work this afternoon I will go through this bedding process, I had no idea.

Has anyone had any luck painting these rotors? I know the GEOMET coating is supposed to last longer than the OEM coating, but it gets pretty bad up here in the winter with the road salt and I want my brakes to look rust free for a while?

I assume I should use a high temperature zinc compatible paint? Let me know!

Haven't had anyone report back about painting them. But I don't see any rason a good high temp paint wouldn't adhere nicely to the hats. That being said, the coating holds up great to Ohio winters, several guys have been running sets for multiple season and they still look great!
