Perhaps rotors do not need to be changed. My original M Sport Brake Option rotors have 78,000 miles on them between original M Sport Brake Option pads and F8X M3/M4 stock pads. They are still within spec.

The dealership is not your only option. You can buy whatever pads you want and take them to a good mechanic that works on a lot of BMWs and they can do the brake job for you at half the price of the dealer. I’d recommend buying OEM parts. OEM parts are about $80-$100 I think per pair. So $500 isn’t ridiculous but an outside mechanic can probably do it in about 30 minutes and charge you about $100 in labor. Everyone with an out of warranty BMW should find a good indy mechanic. I’ll admit it’s easier to find one for BMWs in California, but you should be able to find one in Indy as well. If you really want to do it yourself and you have at least some experience working on cars: If the dealer said you just need new pads slapped on, then you can probably just do that since they presumably inspected the rotors. But you should still measure the rotor thickness, make sure the rotor surface is smooth, and make sure there’s no lip. Changing just pads is easy. You jack the car, remove the wheel, remove brake hardware, remove a slider pin bolt, remove old pads, compress piston, add new pads, bolt in slider, add brake hardware, reinstall sensor, install wheel. Done. If you have fixed caliper (sport) brakes, then it’s even easier.

08-04-2017, 12:03 PM # New Member Drives: 2013 335i M-Sport Alpine White Join Date: Jul 2016 Location: San Diego, Ca I got quoted $460 at the dealer for front pad replacement, which is too much and i’ll be tackling this myself. After looking online i found the pads for about $130 plus a few bucks for anti-squeal grease and brake cleaner. I have a 335i M Sport so the front brake calipers are different from the 328i, and i think easier to replace. I’m replacing mine next week (for my first time) and this video is what Im using as a guide. I know its for an M car but the calipers are the same and the pad replacement will be the same. good luck.

How do you make the “brake” warning go away on the dash if you do them yourself? I have tons of meat left on my pads but the car is insisting I need brakes. the warnings are driving me nuts.

I did read he never specified anything if he had floaters or bbk. And even a base 335i has 4 piston brembo that the pins need to be punched out. My remark was towards the two bolts being Untightened and no one had any specifics on what brake kit it is so I’m assuming just like you are. _ FBO-PS1 and stuff

As long as we’ve revisited this, you don’t need to change rotors, but they should be resurfaced. If you have the right tools that’s something you can do yourself, but most take them to an auto parts store that offers that service, on average for maybe $20 each. However, you can’t drive the car to and from the store with the rotors removed, and you’ll probably have to leave them for a day.

Is it cheaper to replace brakes yourself?

Brake Pad Replacement Cost – Unfortunately, there is no hard and fast answer to the question of how much new brakes should cost. Every mechanic charges a different hourly rate and every manufacturer prices its parts singularly. That said, for brake pad replacement only, you can expect to pay between $35 and $150 for parts for all four wheels.

Labor typically runs between $80 and $120 per axle, making for a grand total of between $115 and $270 per axle. As stated before, replacing rotors with your brake pads is critical for best braking and maximum safety. New pads on worn rotors can create issues with the new pads, cause vibration, or make braking less safe than with new pads and new rotors together.

Rotors cost between $30 and $75 each. Higher-quality rotors like Duralast Gold, which feature a coated hat and edge and are designed to outperform your vehicle’s original equipment, usually cost a little more. Labor at a shop to replace rotors and pads is approximately $150 to $200 per axle.

  • Brake rotor and pad repair generally comes out to around $250 to $500 per axle when visiting a professional shop.
  • Calipers are the most difficult and expensive aspect of the braking system to replace.
  • A single caliper can cost up to $130 and several will reach prices even higher.
  • A complete brake repair — one that includes pads, rotor and caliper replacement — typically averages between $300 and $800.

However, depending on the make and model of your vehicle, you can easily spend more than $1,000 on a complete brake job. Of course, you can save a significant amount of money if you learn to replace the pads, rotors and calipers yourself. Before you go the DIY maintenance route, though, bear in mind that your safety should come before cost.
