My brother e-mailed me today. His 2008 BMW 528xi has 69K miles on it and I guess there's some kind of indicator saying that he'll need new pads in approximately 1K miles. I've done pads and rotors on three cars before. A 98 Grand Prix, a 99 Grand Prix, and an 02 Civic. The instructions/procedure for doing the BMW look pretty much the same. Anyone have a 5-Series and have a pad recommendation? I took a peek at AAP's site and saw Akebono, Wearver, and Beck/Arnley as options. When replacing the pads, I should really get the rotors turned, right? (That's assuming there's still enough thickness to be turned.) If they need to be replaced, AAP listed Akebono, Wearver, and Beck/Arnley as options just like the pads. Thoughts and input appreciated, as always.
