I know what you mean. I thought hard about changing them, but finally came to the conclusion that it was now or never - while the car was in bits. I've been soaking the joints in PB blaster for the...

Sorry, just realised you already knew they were on realoem. I haven't seen any pictures, but I do have the remnants of the ones attached to my car. And also the quote from BMW for replacements.

Hi Dave,

Yup, it's on realoem. I've never had much luck attaching images on here, but it's part number 65311351907. BMW seem to think they're worth £30 each....

Thanks, good to know, I think I'll go down the same route. Did you go for the standard Goodridge/Hel type lines?

Flexi Brake Hoses

As with all projects - mission creep! I thought that while I was cleaning up the rear end of the car, I might as well take the calipers off and refurb them. Which led to changing pads. Which led to...

Excellent find :thumbsup:. I'm going to trawl through the TIS when I get some spare time and I'll compare the two to see if they match up - and then post back on here.

There's a switch under the brake pedal that can go bad. Relatively cheap and easy diy (bit fiddly, but that's about it).

996's seem to be growing into their looks and improving with age. I've owned a couple of 3.2's, a couple of 964's, and a 997 (plus a 924 and a 944). Thought the first of the water cooled (996) would...
