Working with a local experienced tech to get front brakes (rotors,
pads and sensors) replaced vs stealer. Car is a 1998 528i Automatic
(e39) used for regular city and highway driving.
* Any recommendations for brand of pads, rotors and sensors that are
better (longer lasting) than BMW stock? Stock pads are creating much
brake dust on front spokes...! Also looking to replace brake fluid at
same time...any advice on Brake Fluid brand, type and quantity? What
are good recommendations for where to purchase from?
* Stealer says never replace the transmission fluid. Also is it true
that the computer needs to be reset after transmission fluid
replacemtn job..? otherwise computer is continuing to make microscopic
adjustments to compensate for old transmission fluid without realizing
that the fluid has been replaced? How risky is it to replace
tramsmission fluid? The shifting of gears in my car is OK (slightly
jerky) although it was smoother a year or so back.
* Also any suggestions on make/type of spark plugs for replacement?
Also a link to show instructions would be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
