I have a 1998 540i with 30k milesand the rear brakes need replacing.
I have always done my own brake jobs on my other cars, but wondering if there are special considerations that would keep me from doing this brake job?
I read a couple of posts and it seems that everyone replaces the rotors and does not resurface them based on BMW's recommendation. Why is this?
Any recommendations on where to purchase the parts?
Any recommendations on a good quality service manual?
Ant thing else to look out for?
All help is appreciated, thanks!!
