Remember when you're putting things together that a little anti size is your friend.

Yep, put anti-seize. Im all done . Car stops so much smoother. I like the choice in rotors and pads I made thanks to recommendations.

Don't forget to "bed" them in correctly.

Not really necessary if you follow the BMW manual and go easy on your new brakes for the first 300 miles.

From my manual:
Brake system
Approx. 300 miles/500 km must elapse
before the brake pads and rotors
achieve the optimal pad-surface and
wear patterns required for trouble-free
operation and an extended service life
later on.
To break in the separate parking brake
drums, apply the parking brake lightly
when coasting to a standstill - at a traffic
signal, for instance - provided that
traffic conditions allow you to do so.
To avoid corrosion, repeat this procedure
from time to time.


Want all your questions answered? Go to: http://www.stoptech.com/technical-su...l-white-papers
And read up on all the brake knowledge you need from the source of accurate info.


Among other things, this: http://www.stoptech.com/technical-su...l-white-papers
is here.
