I have done lots of brake jobs on different vehicles, but not BMW? Is their anything I should be aware of? Do sensors need to be replaced?
Thanks in Advance
The site sponsor FCP Groton will gladly ship parts to you. Good quality and a fair price. I have dealt with them before so i know ;-)
Outer lip is standard on factory discs. As long as your brakes haven't come down metal to metal, and your car doesn't shake, shimmy, or rattle on braking, you should be alright by jst changing pads and sensors.
If the light came on, yes, change sensors. they're cheap
