WHAT:
Akebono Brake Pads & Apex Wheel Studs


Brake pad warning light came on, even though I have had new pads waiting to go in for a couple months now, so I had to finally make time to swap them out.
Also had these Apex Wheel Studs sitting here since I purchased my EC7's, so I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone and crank it all out at once.

Here's the comparison of my old vs. new pads:



Cleary due for a change.

Here's the new studs with my EC7's:



While swapping pads, I realized my rotors had quite a lip on them, so I decided to order new rotors which I will be swapping in soon enough.

Additionally, I will be taking the car in to Malek@MRFEngineering for the following:

-Full Rod Bearing Service along with everything that entails
-Full Fluid Flush
-Bimmerworld SS Brake Lines
-New OEM Brake Rotors
-New OEM Brake Pad Wear Sensors
-New OEM Motor Mounts
-Alignment

Trying to see what other maintenance items I can cover while he is in there as well, possibly belts and pulley's, but we shall see.. Here's some random iPhone X pics for entertainment..

Malek uses Clevite Bearings with a Calico coating along with Custom ARP Bolts. I believe the bearings are very similar to the BE

63,124 Miles


WHAT:
-Full Rod Bearing Service
-Full Fluid Flush
-Bimmerworld SS Brake Lines
-New OEM Brake Pad Wear Sensors
-New OEM Motor Mounts
-Alignment


New Motor Mounts:



My old motor mounts removed at 63,124 Miles...



And here's what my Rod Bearings looked like after removal:



Not the worst, but definitely glad to have gotten this done.
Bearings were replaced with Clevite Bearings with a Calico coating along with Custom ARP Bolts

Oil was replaced with LiquiMoly 10W-60 with some MOS2 anti-friction agent added as well.

Thanks to Malek@MRF for completing the service for me. Glad I can now enjoy the car without any worries!

Nice job! Where did you purchase the bearings from?
