I've finally come to the asumption that the front brake discs on my car need replacing. Because of the juddering coming through the steering wheel.

I've just had the pads changed at the Main dealer.... so do i need to change them again? or can i just do the discs?

Also does anyone recommend any performance upgraded discs for the 328i?

cheers

If you've just recently had your pads changed, when u take them off check them for any signs of damage or uneven wear that coulda been caused by the old discs. If they look ok then u should have no problems putting them back in with a new set of discs. Avoid refitting pads that are cracked or excessivley worn...

Good luck...

If a rotor is out of BMW specs... meaning.. they are worn... you can NOT turn your rotors.. its is very specific to not rework BMW rotors... they are made to last untill the spec says they are done.. if you turn them.. or rework them past this.. they have a very high chance of cracking.. or coming apart if used...

most places, especially the dealer should know to machine the rotors, i do it every time, just to get rid of all the imperfections that rotor might have. if the rotor had enough beef than im sure you may be ok. however id just give then a good check for warpage
