Anyone know how difficult is to change the brake pads on the 6 series? I've done a few brake pad jobs on other car's but not these car. These oem pads have way too much brake DUST, and it must go ASAP! Thanks

sorry mate , not 100% on how to do it , but a friend says he done his with minimum tools and it only took about half hour. so i cant imagine it that tricky. i take it you do know there is only 1 brake pad sensor per axle. so dont go buying 2 if your only doing the front pads.
i was looking into doing my pads . are you looking at the ebc low dust pads ? if so let me know how you find them. i was wondering if the "low dust " is just another selling gimmick or if it actually does make a diference?
cheers

I've done it. Not difficult if you've done it on other cars. Check out the E60 and DYI boards since the brakes on my 535 and 650 are identical and there's DYI posts there.

So....you actually replaced your good OEM pads with "EBC red stuff" that you found on eBay?
You kidding me, right?

Oem pads are junk. Those thing create way too much dust,and It's not fun cleaning your wheels everyday. The EBC's are a lot better than oem pads.I have the same on my CLK55 and have no complaints.

Whatever. Brakes should make the car stop. This is what OEM pads do.
I wouldn't trust this to some eBay pads, dust or not.
