Well I just finished swapping the rear pads and took it for a spin. Same as with just the front pads changed. Perhaps the less shaking is because they are older and don't bite as well as the cold...

As for torquing the wheel/bolts, I only use the supplied wrench from the trunk as using an air gun can lead to over-torquing. I'm sure Mango appreciates me using the OEM BMW wrench. :woot::rofl:
