    New Axxis Ult. brake pads sqeak like hell. . .

    I talked to a couple of BMW mechanics and was told that the rotors
    don't usually get turned or replaced with new pads so I just had
    the new pads put in. The brakes work great but squeaky beyond belief?
    Any ideas?

    You should have used the Deluxx, they're all organtic, not as hard & very rotor friendly. I've recently put these on mine and they excellent!

    When squeaks go away & rotor problems?

    Thanks for the breakin info. Very helpful! I know EdP mentioned
    good success with the Ultimates and is a repeat buyer. Will the
    squeaking most likely stop and when? Also, did you have rotor
    problems as JetblkM5 seems to indicate?
    I put in new Stop Tech SS brake lines and Super Blue fluid. . .
    and on my first breakin runs they felt quite good and seemed to
    just keep getting better. I'm looking forward to putting them to the
    test this weekend at the Infineon BMW driving school.
    If anyones is going to be there look me up.

    should go away

    right after the break-in routine, but if it does not go away completely, try repeating the break-in. The pedal may have felt harder during the stops, that's normal. Note, the Ultimates will fade at the track fairly quickly; they're not race pads. And when you pull off the track, use the brakes as little as possible so you don't leave pad deposition on the rotors. Have fun!'01 M5

    Back from school & no squeaks

    I just got back from the BMW driving school and the squeaks pretty much went away. I had a great time and Satch, the Roundel editor
    turned out to be my instructor. Of course I didn't know that until
    afterwards. What a kick! Then I ran out of gas. . . not expecting 3mi. per gal. or so. I'll be careful about cool down on
    the pads but they certainly seemed to worked better than stock. BTW the DSC went off as soon as I realized the cause of the bogging. Things got sweet as Satch would say if I hit a turn well, from the moment the DSC got out of the way. Now I'm more hooked than ever.
