Brakes To Go for Mobile Brake Repair Service
When performing BMW brake repair, pad selection is crucial. BMW’s braking systems can often make noise after being serviced, even at the dealership. Their OEM brake pads can be noisy and produce quite a bit of brake dust. At Brakes To Go, we use top-of-the-line ultra-premium Akebono ceramic or semi-metallic brake pads to ensure BMW brakes provide maximum stopping power with little to no dust or noise. Furthermore, our installation of Akebono pads is warrantied for 36 months or 36K miles, whichever comes first – a warranty that the BMW dealership can’t touch. And, of course, our convenient mobile service costs a FRACTION of what you would pay at the dealership.

Your BMW was manufactured with some of the finest brakes available. BMW braking systems are also some of the most advanced in the world. Because your brakes are so important to your safety, superior BMW brake services are critical. Here are some common BMW brake problems.
BMW Brake Problems and Common Symptoms
- A Grinding, Rubbing, Squealing Noise When You Apply Brakes in BMW: A grinding sound or any other high-pitched noises during the BMW braking process likely means you’re dealing with worn out brake pads and shoes. If you continue to drive your BMW with worn out pads you will cause further damage to your vehicle. Schedule a brake pad and shoe replacement right away to prevent these issues.
- Excessive Brake Pedal Travel/ Lag or Spongy Response When You Brake in BMW: If you feel like your pedal travels further than it should when pushing on the brakes, you’re probably feeling some brake pad issues. Another sign of BMW brake problems is when your brakes feel spongy or don’t respond quickly when you press the brake pedal. This could be a sign of low brake fluid. Let a BMW brake professional diagnose the issue as soon as you feel something off, this will help avoid extensive damages.
- A Sharp, Burning Smell Coming From Your BMW After Applying Brakes: A burnt smell, especially after extensive use of the brakes, could mean your BMW’s brake pads are overheated. When this happens you may need to replace the worn brake pads.
- Vibrations and Pulsing from BMW Steering Wheel or Brake: If you feel vibrations or pulsing in the brake pedal or steering wheel during the process of braking, you could have rotor issues. Driving a BMW with warped or damaged rotors is not safe, these should be repaired right away.
- Any Alert or Warning Light on the BMW Dashboard Regarding Your Brakes: There are several BMW warning lights related to your brakes. If you see the letters “ABS,” your Brake Assist feature may be malfunctioning. The word “BRAKE” in red indicates a potentially serious problem with your brake system. If you see a circle ringed by broken parentheses this is another brake-related BMW warning light symbol that relates to your brake pads. Ensure that these issues are addressed as soon as possible for your safety.
Other Signs and Symptoms of Bad BMW Brake Rotors or Pads

- It’s been over a year or 12,000 miles since your BMW’s last brake inspection
- Your BMW is wobbling or rocking when driving at high speeds
- It takes your BMW longer distances to stop than usual
