When you picked the BMW, you were choosing a car of high quality and notable style; you will want to preserve your investment by using only the finest parts. The distinctive look of a high-class BMW is the embodiment of foreign proficiency, design and power. BMW is a superlative maker of elegant autos which supply precision handling and high speed driving. Decelerating a speeding vehicle requires several systems cooperating together - your brake pedal, rotors, fluid lines and BMW 525i Brake Pads. While the pedal is pushed down the pads make contact against the car's brake rotor and the momentum and energy of the vehicle is changed into heat. With repeated applications of the brakes, this heat eats away at your brake components and they have to eventually be replaced - ideally long before the non-replaceable components start to take damage. Local laws require your car to possess the required safety components, including lights and working brakes - save yourself from expensive tickets or accidents by owning all the correct parts. Whether it's your suspension to car antennas, caring for your beloved car or truck with OEM quality parts is the smartest move in the long run. Choosing a BMW is a smart choice, now keeping it in showroom condition is a great choice! Sometimes the most difficult thing about repairing your car or truck is finding a good source for trustworthy parts. Shop at PartsGeek any time you want high quality automotive parts and always receive outstanding service and a competitive price year-round.

Research on Brake Pads for BMW 525i
If you appreciate design that pushes the envelope, and feel good behind the wheel of a unique and distinctive vehicle, BMWs 5 series offers several options that are more than worthy of your consideration. Powerful styling matched by a six-cylinder engine is just part of what makes the 525i sedan is one of BMW's most successful vehicles. If you are attached to the look of previous-generation BMW cars, the 5 Series may be a visual disappointment. For the same price, there are other cars on the market that are equally luxurious, but they don't have the complicated high-tech wizardry of the 521 sedan. The 5 Series stands in sharp contrast to BMWs of the past. The subtle corners and simple lines have given way to sharp-creased edges and cat's-eye headlamp lenses. There are still some BMW trademark details, such as the twin-kidney grille and dog-leg rear door treatment, but with its bustle-back trunk and sculpted side panels, the 5 Series has definitely moved on to new design territory.
A car's braking system is comprised of several parts that translate the driver's actions into a physical force that stops the car. Brake pads are central to the car's braking system because they contact and apply pressure and friction to the brake rotors, those flat, shiny discs that you can sometimes see just behind the wheels of some vehicles. The pressure and friction applied to the brake rotor is what slows and stops the wheel. Once the wheels stop turning, the vehicle stops moving, too. Though the role of brake pads as braking parts is pretty simple, the brake pads themselves are not.
Because of the speed at which a vehicle's wheels rotate, combined with the heavy weight of the BMW 525i, the brake pads undergo extreme stress every time the car slows down or comes to a stop. Sometimes, when coming to a slow stop, the brakes will start to squeal. If this happens, there is a good possibility that it is due to the brake pad wear sensor.
If the brakes are squealing, there's a good chance the noise is a warning from the brake-pad wear sensor. These are little metal tabs attached to the inner brake pad that come into contact with the brake rotor when the pad's friction material wears thin. While the sound will become increasingly annoying, the early warning of worn brake pads can head off some expensive damage. If a brake pad loses most or all its friction material, its steel backing and/or the rivets attaching the friction material will cause severe damage to the brake rotor, along with decreased stopping ability.
What should I do if my sensor starts sounding off?
You should have your brake pads inspected for uneven wear, breakage or cracking on the friction surface. If defects are found, replace the pads immediately.
