    Preparing myself for a new set of front discs as i’m getting a judder when braking hard. They look fairly worn so unlikely will be replaced under AUCW if there is any warping.

    What should I expect to pay the dealer to carry out the work? Also, are there any other places I can purchase OE discs from other than the dealer? Thanks

    I didn’t notice that!

    I’ve only had the car 4 months so I’m going to see if I can get a goodwill gesture out of them if they need changing

    Thanks, I’ve put a post up on their page asking. Looks like it’s the labour cost that racks the price up so high.

    Saw an advert on eBay from Shrewsbury BMW that they were doing the F80 full brake set up for £900; just needs to be fitted. Not a bad price imo.

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/273326159044

    This is a complete brake kit for the BMW F80 M3,the kit will contain:

    2 X Front Discs
    1 Set of Front Pads
    1 Front Pad Sensor
    2 X Rear Discs
    1 Set of Rear Pads
    1 Rear Pad Sensor

    Direct from a dealer. Fitting should be straight forward for someone in the know...

    They’re not hard to change buddy, I’m sure there would be plenty of how to vids on the internet too (if you fancied abit of diy). Just need a jack, decent socket set. Few Allen keys, hammer and something to hit the retaining calipers pins out with.

    Cheers bud. I’ve always changed them myself on previous cars and have most of the tools to do it all! My only concern was the brake service interval on the dash. Will this automatically change when I put new pads on (assuming they need doing too) or does it need to be plugged in?

    Was it an AUC? I would be all over the dealership if so. I can't believe that discs that need changing now would have passed their inspection four months ago. (Unless you have done mega miles in that time of course?!?)

    I was told, when buying both of our AUC's that you shouldn't have to incur major cost on the car for 12 months after purchasing (caveated with a mileage clause of course).

    Brake pad wear sensor will need to be renewed and the CBS reset

    Yeah it’s a Sytner AUC and I’ve covered 1921 miles. I’m going to be extremely disappointed if they ask me for any money for repair/replacement.

    Here is how they look and according to iDrive, the pads have 150,000 miles left on them:

    There's no way you should have to pay a penny looking at the state of that... after less than 2k miles!... that's appalling. Ask to see the AUC checklist they completed before you bought it

    Agree, it’s a bit rubbish that I was handed a performance car with brakes in that state. I will go through my paperwork to see if they’ve given me a copy of the checklist.

    What mileage is on the car?

    Mine had 36k when I picked it up, now 41k 10weeks later. There is a lip on the disc (not too bad) but pads have loads of life and backed up in the idrive (like you say).

    Doesn’t the AUC check just basically do an MOT check - brakes are consumables so as long as they are legal they won’t be concerned about them?

    The Mileage is currently 53k. Just spoke with the dealer I had it from and they said that the auc check should have measurements!

    Think you’ve got ground here bud, given the mileage. By experience the dealer needs to be told three times before admitting fault :thumbsup:

    First thing I checked in the showroom on mine was disc wear on each corner. Was comfortable with the lip present commensurate to miles covered.

    Keep pushing them. :thumbsup:
