335i discs/pads & warning light questions...

Folks,

My 335i is warning that I'm now due front pads, the dealers have quoted with discs as well just incase. Needless to say the price is horrendous, just under 500.

I've done discs/pads on most previous cars so I'd easily give it a go on this one, is there a decent source of OEM parts I could get them from?

Also can the brake warning light be reset without the dealer being involved? Or does it reset itself with new wear sensors?

It's doing my nut in, everytime I get into the car it's on the iDrive.

Phoned search button, they can't supply any discs/pads. Did find the procedure for resetting the lights though.

Eurocarparts don't appear to have genuine/oem parts (although there's every chance one of the companies are supplying BMW), is there any supplier that does carry them discounted? Similar to what vagparts did with VW/Audi etc?

LOL. Oi with the sarkyness.

Answers to your questions. Yes BMINIPARTS

Also Euro car parts sells OEM pads and discs except the BMW stamps. I believe they are either ATE or Pagid. You will see when you enter your reg number the "recommended" choice are usually OEM parts.

No need to bring Drama Johnny its all good

Over on BMW Land it's sponsered by a dealer down south who offer a discount to members.

Maybe worth a look..

Or... Go to next day brakes and get discs and pads from Brembo.

Euro's do the discs and pads for the 335 range as I've obtained them several times, through work or some of my customers, however and this is the big thing you need to find someone who can read their inventory as its so I'm told not 100% obvious that these are on offer the first time I asked I got 330/24mm and pads to match, turned out they were the 330 set up, eventually after a bit of digging 348/30mm's were sourced, though i later found out that there not quite 30mm's but 28.4mm's the disc they'll supply will be Pagid the pad wear sensor will again be Pagid and pad wise its transpired will be either Pagid or Textar(trading name of Mintex) from memory there's a third brand but for the life of me I can't remember the brand but if you manage to obtain the discs they'll be Pagid, which is a decent brand.

But it's sometimes due to grief and their labelling system easier to source elsewhere like GSF for instance, purely down to the grief trying to get the right items but as I've found it's down to the person on the other side of the phone/counter who can make things happen though the part number which you can get off the web can really help if in doubt but its not a common part.

You'll find them if you enter your reg number then select discs on the page about the 3rd or 4th item down just check the disc measurement to ensure you get the right diameter.
