X5 – Front Brakes Overhaul

Last week I overhauled the X5’s rear brakes. Today I did the front to match. Very satisfying! They were properly crusty and lipped.

So I got to work. Quick blog post this. Brembo disks (complete with new retaining screw, which was nice) and Pagid pads. New sensor. £178.01 from ECP.

I’m delighted to note twin pot calipers there. The most I’ve ever had on a BMW. I guess it takes a 356mm disk to motivate them to ditch the single pot mission.

All done. Looks great. Brakes work, too. Bonus!
