DIY front brake pads and rotors install for f30 and f32 m sport

Hey guys,
A few weeks ago I was looking for a DIY M sport brake Pads and rotor tutorial but could find good ones so I decided to make a video for anyone else who is looking to change his/her brake pads or rotors.

The rotors I used:https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b...ke+Rotor&pos=1

The brake pads I used:https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...305694&jsn=495

The stopping power is pretty similar to the stock pads but I've noticed a huge improvement in reduction of brake noise & dust.

Those pads are a pile of shit. They squeal like mad when it's cold or when it rains. Changed them out ASAP like others on the forum.

is it really okay to lever against the brake disc like that, to push the piston back?

I recently purchased the Powerstop Z26 series pads for my 435i M sport. Powerstop had replaced all 4 corners after I called and complained about excessive squealing. I installed the new set and lubed everything I could with caliper grease and the new set squealed just as much, if not more. I tried reinstalling the factory hardware with the new pads, as recommended by Powerstop, and that did nothing. I even tried bedding the pads multiple times with no change. Very disappointed in this from Powerstop.

I have been running the Brembo nasty dust pads this week and I'm trying to return the Powerstop pads.
