I have new front brakes and they are awesome

Finally wore out my front brakes. The idrive had been saying 1600kms to go for almost a year and probably 10,000kms, but when it started ticking down to 400kms and then in 10kms increments I knew it was time.

I got some BMWP cross drilled/ventilated discs from BMR some time back and some cool carbon pads. Got Advan to install and do the brake fluid at the same time for a fair price and we were away.

It took about 100kms to bed in as suggested by Peter, but now they feel great and look good as well. The best thing of course is that unlike my original BMW pad/disc combo there is no brake squeak (well not so far). I love driving with the roof down and the squeak would drive me mad!

Thanks Stu and Advan for making spring driving all the more pleasant.
