Re: Brakes Needed for 120d - How Much?!

How easy is it to replace the rear pads for the e82? Do you need any special tools. I'm guessing you need to buy a pad sensor too like at the front?...Cheers in advance

Re: Which brake discs E82 M Sport

It's due for a change apparently but I'm not in too much of a rush tbh. Marco as usual this is getting more complicated than I first thought! Are Pagid brake sensors compatible with Textar discs and pads??? as they seem to be the only ones available at Eurocarparts and how many bloody sensors do I n...

Which brake discs E82 M Sport
