    Today driving my 2000 323i the ABS locked up while coming to a slow stop. Road was completely smooth and dry, and I braked slow. No idea why it locked up but the traction control light started flashing like crazy and now DSC wont turn back on. I just changed my control arm bushings the other...

    I have a 2000 328i and plan on doing the usual front 330i caliper/rotor/pads swap but will I need to swap the rears? From what I’m getting I’ll need to swap trailing arms and other stuff to keep the parking brake? Anyways If I just get new pads and rotors in the rear will I be good or will the...

    So I'm looking at getting new brakes and for the longest time I've been running Akebono Euros but I'm really starting to miss that initial bite. The Akebonos still bite not anywhere near OEM and it takes more pedal travel for the bite to set in. This time, I was going to switch back to TEXTAR...

    Just bought a 99 323i and the day after the brake lines bursted on me as I was leaving work. Lifted it up and the lines were rusted and clapped out. Anyway looking for easy bend replacement, what line size would I need and would I need to replace couplings?

    Hello. I had to change my two front brake hoses. The change went fine, but the trouble started when i had to bleed the right side. Left side is ok. When trying to open valve, it broke clean off. The right side is now unbled. Is this something that is really dangerous to drive with, could...

    This past week I was upgrading my brake pads and after putting everything back together, I went out for a drive and a few miles in I started to hear this terrible rattling that turns out to be due to my caliper guide pins backing themselves out a few threads. I've replaced the pins themselves as...

    Hello, I've been making trips to the junkyard once in a while and I was thinking about snatching some 330 brakes for my 325i. I read somewhere that you NEED 17" wheels to make them work, is this true? My winter wheels are 15" because they are for snow tires. I would love to make this upgrade...

    Here's the situation...did a complete brake overhaul at the axles...new pads, new rotors and new stainless steel brake lines (StopTech). Pulled out the Motive pressure bleeder and started at the rear passenger side caliper. Everything was perfect. Flushed the old...

    Good day gents, I have a bit of dilemma - friend of mine brought me PFC Z-rated pads from USA (front\rear), but unfortunately, one of the rear pads is chipped. Should I use them or discard them (returning them is not an option)? I'm waiting for my performance rotors order from the dealer, so I...

    Recently bought a 325ci it's a 2001 117k on the clock. The brakes make a buzzing/vibrating sound which you feel through the brake pedal when at low speeds coming to a stop. Spoke to Halfords and they said could be the rotors being warped although im not convinced (pretty sure front pads need...

    Yes, ive searched the forums, every answer seems to be sway bar bushings, but I tested mine and they are solid, with no movement. This rattle has only recently started. Please listen to the video, you can hear it, but its much louder in real life. Ive also recently upgraded my brake rotors and...

    I recently replaced all my e46 M3's pads, rotors, and lines with StopTech equivalents (and 500ml of fresh st600 fluid). Everything was fine excpet I didn't tighten the front passenger line enough and sprayed fluid everywhere. After more bleeding I was not getting any bubbles from any of the...

    Hello, The bentley service manual seem to be advising to use a power bleeder AND depress the brake pedal 5 times (p.691). ECS tuning tutorial The above tutorial however advises against depressing the pedal and using the power bleeder as a substitute. They say depressing the brake pedal could...
