How long do BMW brakes last?
The only policy BMW carries regarding brakes is 12,000 miles or 2 years for warrantable parts. Just for a single carbon ceramic disc will set you back over 2000, and is it really worth all the above advantages? Would you just swap everything to a more reliable standard steel and as capable setup that cost the fraction of the price?
How much do BMW M carbon ceramic brakes cost?
The M Carbon Ceramic Brakes can be added to selected BMW M models for an additional $8,500 to $9,250 as a Performance Option. 20-inch or greater M wheels must be ordered in conjunction with the M Carbon Ceramic Brake option on your new BMW. This is because the brake discs are larger on the front wheels and cannot fit into the stock wheels provided.
Are carbon ceramic brakes better for your car?
Meanwhile, carbon ceramic brakes are also weight-savers, shedding 19.4 kg on the M6 and 12.5 kg on the M3 and M4. And lighter brakes means lower unsprung mass and consequently, better acceleration and handling. Not to forget, with carbon ceramics, you won鈥檛 have to worry about the brake dust or corrosion of discs either.
Do ceramic brakes wear out?
Frequent track drivers will tell you that while ceramics won鈥檛 wear out as quickly as the standard brakes, they are not un-breakable. Also, squeaking can be bit of an issue and so can be the lack of pedal feel at low speeds and when the brakes are running cold (although we feel the brake bite varies from car to car).
