BMW Technician: Is It Time for New Brakes?

Is it time to take your BMW to the mechanic for a brake job? If you have an older BMW, you probably won’t get an alert on your dash that it’s time.

Another sign is if your car swerves to the left or the right, ever so slightly, when you brake. You might also need a brake job if the car doesn’t stop right away. Either way, be sure to bring your BMW shop into the mechanic as soon as you suspect anything is wrong. Go too long, the brakes will eat into the rotors, making what would normally be a fairly inexpensive brake job into a costly repair.
