    PDC front not behaving

    So, my rear PDC work great, turn on, detect objects great etc... The fronts, I sometimes see a flash of all 4 sensors and all the colour bands, and then nothing, or sometimes just nothing. No errors on idrive, not plugged it in yet but it's not screaming at me. I've checked front and rear sensors, and all buzz when you put your ear to them, altho rears to my ear seemed louder but coukd just be me. I did find if i put my finger on one of the front ones and rub, I heard a blip in the car sometimes, which is odd. I've checked module in wheel well, no water, all looks good to me. I think bumpers on this were changed to M sport as it's an se originally, so maybe an issue created then? But seems odd anyhow with no errors. Any thoughts? Andy Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. Hi guys I have a 57 plate 520D M Sport and I need to change the following; Front Brake Pads and Discs plus sensors Rear Brake Pads and Discs plus sensors Hand Brake shoes i have been to my local indie and he quoted me to supply and fit Pagid parts: Front Discs £160 plus VAT Front Brake pads £140 plus VAT Rear Brake pads £120 plus VAT ... I stopped there and didnt get price for the rest of the stuff. Only reason I went to him was because the car has sensors and needs to be reset everytime you change the pads, as I don't know how to reset this I thought I would take it in to him otherwise I could buy the parts and get it done cheaper myself. Now going onto parts I am looking at Pagid bits and bobs for my motor from ECP but when I put my reg in it comes up with two differant types of front brake discs: http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/BMW_5+Series_2.0_2007/p/car-parts/brakes/brake-friction/brake-disc/?104110938&1&d37108f6b39d81b075a4d87cb91749aab84358f7&000027 http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/BMW_5+Series_2.0_2007/p/car-parts/brakes/brake-friction/brake-disc/?104110958&1&886be8784c6c2be83335c07f1258137bc880ac2a&000027 What the differance between the two - which one is best for my car? I don't fancy going back to my indie to ask him lol! Same goes with the front brake pads theres 2 to choose from - so how do I know which ones I need? http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/BMW_5+Series_2.0_2007/p/car-parts/brakes/brake-friction/brake-pad/?101110438&1&505a4c036652ea938d2fd7763128d7242adbd1be&000036 http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/BMW_5+Series_2.0_2007/p/car-parts/brakes/brake-friction/brake-pad/?101110838&1&0ce5614a9f5be59621d9c0587a559287c7f30d98&000036 The Rear discs and pads it only give me one choice to go for in Pagid range so that should be fine As for the sensors for front and back do I need 1 sensor for the front and 1 for the back, or is it a sensor each side i.e 2 on front, 2 on back? Also where do these sensors plug in to, or how do you change them. The sensors which one do I need from this link: (again for the front theres 2 choices lol) http://www.eurocarparts.com/brake-pad-sensor Sorry for the long post as you can tell I am a novice, only going to learn if I do it myself rther than pay an indie to do it. Thanks for you help guys
