Whats up guys...haven't been here in a few weeks...Changing my brake pads soon, and someone was saying to be careful of the rear caliper as the caliper pistons can "blow out" easily on BMW's (but only on the rears...???) Im really looking for a bullshit/no bullshit detector on this one...and if it is a real problem, how to possibly avoid it....

I think it can't be that common because Bavauto has replacement front calipers on the site, but not rears...I dont know...

That probably came from a ricer, they think they no everything it cracks me up. So many of my friends have ricer and tell me to sell my car, because it has 210,000 miles on it, but why would I do that when nothing is wrong with it and it is running strong???? im like wtf...Good Luck & Happy Bimmering....
