Your BMW’s brake pads help bring your car to a complete stop by creating friction when pressed against the brake disc. The brake disc and brake pads rub together, reaching high temperatures from the friction between the two. The rule of thumb for replacing your brakes pads is to change them out every 50,000 miles. But this is merely a rule of thumb, and there are a variety of factors that may alter that number.
Your driving habits, the brand and quality of brake pads on your BMW and the material of the brake pads can all alter the recommended amount of time between replacement.
