Hi,

My brake pad light just came on today. I was curious as to how much should I expect to pay for 2 new pads?
If so would you recommend anywhere?

Thanks

Specialist Cars (BMW Mini Dealer) want me to pay £240 for front Discs and Pads. Apparently they always say you need to replace the discs...I have a CooperS but wouldnt envisage the CooperD being much cheaper. But ill tell you whats worse!! They want £126.03 to replace the glass in my right spot lamp, which was cracked by a huge stone!! Best thing to do is use your local friendly garage to replace the pads using BMW parts.....This is what i plan to do. Ill let you know how I get on.

You can get pads for £65 from BMW

Mintex will cost about the same from Lohen i believe

Replacements can be found on ebay for as little as £30 and less

I have a set of front disks and pads from a MCS you can have - replaced with Works items in the 1st year of ownership (so very little wear, but no-longer shiny after 2 years in the garage)

I guarantee they'll cost less thsn new items from BMW, even allowing for P&P... :)
