Question? How did you end up cooking your brakes in the first place? Did you figure that out.......

Another question? When you finished installing new pads, new rotors, & wear sensors....
Why did you decide to bleed the brakes? Was it because the brake peadal was low & if so, this why maybe you had no pressure to rear brakes.......if your brake peadal did not come up after bleeding......that means the brake master cylinder is bad.......there is a piston inside the master cylinder with O-rings (seals) that push the brake fluid out to the front & rear brake calipers......when the seals go bad.......the fluid leaks past them & right back into the master cylinder resivoir & not to the brake calipers....can you explain exactly what you have done?

coolvegase34 is an unknown quantity at this point
Not to hijack this poor guy's thread, but do you bleed the lines before you put in new pads and rotors? Is this a tough job, replacing rotors and pads on an e34, or can a mechanically inclined guy doo it in his garage within 1-2 hours. Pricewise, the parts are going to cost me 150 and my labor vs 495 at the bmw indy for my rear brakes. Advice?

Its a diy job if your a mechanically minded, I can do mine in less than an hour easily....there is no need to bleed the brakes for a rotor/disc or pad change.

Thanks marti5 for the info. I have no rust or imperfections on my ride. The only problem with getting the tires off is they are machine tightened and I will be man-torquing them off.

The back brakes seem to be stuck as if constantly braking I think. What's the condition of the parking brake and its cable?
