Confusing as heck: brake part numbers for '08 335xi

My stealership wants to charge an arm & leg for brake replacement (front & rear) - perhaps they're due for replacement (50K miles), and I decided to get BMW OEM parts online instead. At eEuroparts.com, I saw:

4 different part # for front brake pads:
34 11 6 771 868 - $120
34 11 6 767 191 - $130
34 11 6 764 540 - $143
34 11 2 283 865 - $158
Only 1 for brake rotor: 34 11 6 770 729
and 1 for brake wear sensor: 34 35 6 789 441

1 part # for rear brake pads: 34 21 6 791 938
1 part # for rear brake sensor: 34 35 6 789 445
1 part # for rear brake rotor: 34 21 6 764 655

So...which of the 4 brake pad part # is correct? And are the rest OK as well?

Try using www.realoem.com for OEM BMW parts. It looks like the front brake rotor and brake wear sensor are right but from the list of front brake pads you listed, none of them are right.

34 11 6 771 868 - $120 -> up to 330xi
34 11 6 767 191 - $130 -> 6 Series pads
34 11 6 764 540 - $143 -> 5 Series pads
34 11 2 283 865 - $158 -> M3 pads


You'll probably need:

Front pads: 34 11 6 794 917


Double check to make sure!

bmw listing issue

Hey Casual,

Thanks for shopping with eEuroparts.com. You are right! That listing is confusing. Please give our customer service line (800-467-9769) a call with your VIN handy. We can look up all the numbers for you and let you know what choices are available. I have our cataloging dept working on that listing to make it as clear as possible but some models have so many choices that it can be a challenge to make the listing as clear as we like. Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
