    ATE Ceramic brake pads

    I use ATE ceramic. Braking is about the same but with lower dust. I recommend altough a bit more expensive. I had normal ATE pads previous.
  2. Altought isnt made in oficial, as told, you can reset them manually (in idrive or cluster) or with other devices. You only wont get a digital history, i have mine in the revision book. There are several DIY in YouTube for the steps
  3. Due to enviroment restrictions I think that is expected that rubber quality is "failing" the old standards. I've got Goodyear F1 asym 3 RFT and with 2years passed (dot) and 20k miles I'm having same issues.

    Textar Epad Brake Pads any opinions

    I use Textar ePad and I'm happy with them, in the front. At cold brake a little bit less than normal but normal use no difference and a lot less dusty [emoji16] I recomend them as they are pretty cheap here. Since I don't use Cruise Control and other aid assistance because of that reported extended (rear) brake usage, I'm getting good mileage with them. Will soon change rear ones and will fit ePad too.

    Buying an F10 estate advice

    Runing here N47T (184hp) passed 200k miles with no issues,recently changed gearbox oil. As told, has be well cared with reduced (oil) changed and decent oil. And does a great fuel economy for its weight and rides well. All depends the needs you're looking for. 6cilinder are also a great choice.

    New Interior Trim

    How much could cost new trim? Mine is like that but have some damage (they seem scratched and deteriorated, previous owner maybe used inappropriated cleaning products?).

    Should I ditch RFT’s

    Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Continental and Dunlop are my recommendations [emoji16] Having been using Goodyear F1 ASSYM3 for 2 years (2 set's) with no issues, before used Continental SportContact3 and dump them because they dont have rim protection (always runflat versions).

    RWD driving style

    Happy F1 ASSYM3 user in there. Works just fine in MSport. For me, a bit better than Continental SportContact3 I had. But would like to try Dunlop SportMax. Runflat... They are more expensive and ride is noticeable harder in R18 than non-runflat ...

    New tyres advice please - front only.

    Are you sure? It's 275/40R18 in the back and 245/45R18 in the front?Are you looking for a All-Season Tyre? I'm prefer premium brands as Goodyear and Continental. Dunlop is too doing a great products.

    Advice buying a 520d 2014 120k Miles

    It's true... My F10 LCi, when I bought it, I knew that previous owner only changed at service (30k kilometers) as a normal user. It's "normal" but as we know, not the best treatment... Had that in consideration at his 200k kms. And only a few people I know change oil at 15k kms, like I do (and I use motul 8100 efe) And has passed 315k kms.

    Advice buying a 520d 2014 120k Miles

    N47d20 (184hp) always has timing chain issues, not so frequent that 1st N47(177HP). I know some (few) with broke chain... B47 has an different timing chain design from n47, far better reliability.
