OEM Brake Pads?

Hey All,

Just got some PFC08's installed on the 1M in preparation for my first HPDE! I did however quickly realize I wouldn't be able to tolerate the squeal for normal street driving.

I searched for OEM pads for the 1M, and couldn't find an exact brand and in some cases only the Front Pads were offered (being described as OEM). My question is, what is the OEM pad for the 1M and where are both Front and Rear available? Alternatively, if anyone has suggestions on inexpensive street (LOW NOISE) brakes that aren't necessarily OEM, it would be much appreciated.

I believe OEM is Textar.

Other OEM-ish pads would be PFC Z-rated (I found them to be slightly more heat tolerant but reduced cold bite), Stoptech Street Performance (no experience) or Ferodo DS2500 (hybrid pad, a bit squeaky on street), and Akebono ceramic (felt by many to have the least conspicuous dust).

Incidentally I might have a very lightly used set of OEMs sitting in the garage if you are interested, drop me a PM.

I am currently using StopTech Sport brake pads (prefix 309) and are great for street and track use. They do not squeal and stopping power is better than stock pads.

If you don't want to buy BMW pads I recommend TEXTAR. I love their cold bite but they can also squeal a bit sometimes. I have played with many types on BMWs and TEXTAR is my favorite. Jurid tend to be quieter but have less cold bite usually. I have not used 1M version though but have switched often on e46 and expect close
To the same.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Hoping ayao will be able to dig up the OEM pads, but appreciate the other options.

Do the less mechanically inclined find this to be an easy DIY?

There are lots of very good DIY's available. I'd start with Bav Auto and Pelican Parts. Also, since you are a CCA member, check in your club. Members are usually more than willing to guide/assist.
I was invited by NCC to join them in a BMW Performance Driving School year and a half ago. Great people.

It does not require any specialized tools and is a reasonably straightforward DIY.

If you're a visual learner:


This one is a little more detailed:

A few observations . . .

It really is that easy. It takes me an hour to switch to track pads from pulling into the bay to backing out of the bay. I also change the front rotors. It takes about 2 hours to go back to street pads because I clean all of the guide surfaces, remove and clean the guide pins, etc...

Pushing the caliper piston back forces fluid into the MC reservoir. His calipers retracted so quickly and easily that he probably had loosened the master cylinder reservoir cap, which makes a world of difference, but he didn't mention it.

Lastly, if you are going to have any part of your body under a car, use a jack stand. That guy was 1 hydraulic failure away from never walking again. Even if walking isn't important to you, getting a car with less than 4 tires off the ground without damage is no small task.

If your MC is at the max level, wrap it up otherwise you'll push some out of the cap relief when you retract the pistons.
Probably one of the easiest cars to switch pads on. Front clips might annoy you until you figure out a way that works for you.

So ended up going with the PFC Z rated for the street. They’ve been great so far, and for my current skill level, are probably more than adequate on the track.

As a side note(might create separate thread) how long can brakes sit before they become less effective? The PFC 08 are odviously in great condition but probably won’t need to get them back on until I improve driver skill or get some more mechanical skill and space to do the swaps myself. How long can they sit? Does it make more sense to sell them and pick them up again at a later date?

If the pads are kept out of the sun/elements I think they'd have a very, very long lifespan.
I have original brake pads on a 15 year old car daily driver (I drive like a granny) that seem to function just fine. And that is with daily exposure to rain/cold/baking sun/etc.
The only reason to sell them is if you don't think you'll use them again or if you need the space.

PFC Z rated are a great low dust pad that are going to be compatible with the heavier duty PFC track pads. Excellent choice.

Brake pads not on a vehicle will last forever... as long as they are in a dry environment.

OEM BMW pad is Textar... I think I have a few spares lying around also.

PFC Z have been great thus far and are plenty for right now. Also nice and quiet for daily use!

Have a feeling the 08 might sit for a bit, atleast until I get enough wrench experience to do the swaps myself.

Side note: new tires going on today

Hi Guys, can anyone please assist me...i acquired my 1M on the 1st of January but need to replace the brake pads. I am looking to replace them with Textar's, however the stockist didnt have any 1M parts listed on his inventory system, but was able to give me a price on e92 M3 v8 pads. If i am not mistaken, isnt there a slight variance to the rear pad of the 1M vs the E9x M3 pad?

For what its worth, this was the Part numbers that he quoted me on which doesnt match up to what i found on ECS tuning.

Front part number
tx0531

Rear
tx0636

Yes the 1M uses different rear brake pads compared to the M3. However you should be fine using M3 Rear Textar pads. Don't hold me to that however. I would play it safe with OEM pads.

OEM Part numbers are:
34-11-2-283-865 - Front Brake Pads ecs
34-21-2-284-685 - Rear Brake Pads ecs

Familiarize yourself with realoem.com. Put in a BMW part number and it'll tell you what other model BMWs use the same item.

Thank you guys for your input, i had my previous n54 for 8yrs, so I'm no stranger to the platform, but customer service in South Africa isnt very high with Vendors. The Textar salesmen i spoke to, didnt even know there was a 1 Series M or that it used the V8 M3 braking system.

Just my luck, this part number is unique to the 1M..

For peace of mind, i might just do Textar fronts and OEM bmw(textar) rears!

You can't just switch compounds without changing rotors. The pad compounds can easily be incompatible. This is why I use Hawk pads on the street and on the track on my Civic, HPS on the street, DTC60 for the track. All Hawk brake compounds are compatible with each other.

Ended up ordering OEM pads and sensors...i know that textar is an OEM supplier but for peace of mind for the rear pads, i just bit the bullet and went with OEM pads, front and rear

Thanks to all those who offered help and assistance
