Which brake discs and pads?
« on: February 27, 2017, 05:25:02 PM »
Just had a quote from BMW for new discs (front) at £120 + VAT per side.  (£600 in total for new discs and pads is making my eyes water!)

This is part number 34116868939 for 2013 x5 3.0d M Sport.

Does anyone know who makes the OEM discs and pads for BMW?

I can get Pagid, Bosch, Zimmerman, Brembo, and a whole bunch I've never heard of, for considerably less online. I'm in half a mind to go for Pagid - although you'd expect Bosch to be good and they are a fair bit cheaper.

Does anyone have any experience to share?

Cheers

Steve

Pagid and Textar were the OEM fit on earlier models so that may well still be the case on the current ones too.

Thanks-  do you mean a combination of the two -i.e. Pagid discs and textar pads?

+1 for Pagid disks and pads. They are OEM for many if not most manufacturers including Lamborghini.

Eurocarparts has 30% off online sales @ the moment.
