My experience has been that to many shortcut BMW brakes repair procedures. It isnt the simple slap pads on it to get by for a while anymore. First off , the rotors actually wear down just like the pads do. They are soft, so this makes big ridges or a lip on either side of the pad embedded into the rotor. This softer rotor allows for better breaking and dynamic stability control. BMW brake repair is a science now .
Secondly, Its critical the proper replacement parts get used as you could have stability issues while trying to control your car. Remember, its not just you driving the car anymore. Lots of things are done by the computers with expectations of tight tolerance and proper brake repair parts.
Finally , its an old adage but it is true , many techs are just plain lazy . A proper brake repair will have your tech cleaning and lubricating all moving parts. Unfortunately just spraying the brakes down good with brake clean isnt enough. A thorough steel brushing is needed as well before applying the brake lubricant.
