Research on Brakes for BMW 540i

Although brakes seem like something you can depend on, just like the reliability of your BMW, they will eventually fade. Wear and tear brought on by heat and friction are pretty much normal. At some point you're going to need brake pads. If they wear too much, it puts a strain on the brake disc and calipers, and this can shorten their operating life. Replacement parts can be found online, so your ride does not have to suffer, and nor does your bank account.

Brakes Do Not Last Forever

The BMW 540i brake pads are durable. How long they will last, however, depends on many different factors. As friction surfaces, they are designed to wear. Material that transfers to the disc helps to generate more friction as the brakes are applied. There's little you can do to prevent wear. If your brakes start to make a lot of noise, or it takes more pressure on the brake pedal to get the same effect, your pads may need to be replaced. If you wait too long, other issues might arise. Louder noise or vibrations in the brake pedal or steering wheel can mean you need new rotors. Uneven wear might even cause your car to pull to the left or right. If a warning light appears, the BMW 530i brakes or your BMW 540i pads need to be serviced right away.

How Thick Should Brake Pads Be?

Most brake pads, in the BMW E39 brakes or any other vehicle, start out at 12 millimeters. It's normal for the thickness to decrease over time. About three millimeters is the agreed-upon limit to have the brake pads replaced and to seek out a BMW 540i brake job. As far as mileage, the pads should be done every 20,000 to 60,000 miles.

How Much It Costs to Service BMW 540i Brakes

In a 2002 BMW 540i for sale, front brake pads are around $221 to $304 to replace, and a rear set tops out at around $250. Front pads and rotors run from $452 to $802. The rear set is about $450 to replace, on the upper end of the spectrum. For both front calipers, expect a parts and labor fee of anywhere from $573 up to $1,238. Front rotor resurfacing, and new pads, can cost up to $387.

The Potential for Saving on Brakes

Brake parts are commonly massed produced items. They are designed for BMW 540i specs, so not hard to find. A good deal might be more challenging, but not if you focus on online suppliers. With PartsGeek.com, you'll find brakes and other automotive parts and accessories to meet your needs, for much less than anywhere else. Our low prices are due in part to having a reduced overhead. The items in our catalog are only sold online, so we're equipped to pass on the savings to you. Brakes and other maintenance are therefore more affordable and you're less likely to put off repairs because of being afraid of a high bill.
