Brake pads - what make?

Brake service was showing 1400miles remaining but just changed to 0 miles with red warning light for rear pad change. No countdown given. Anyway, do you recommend genuine or other brand? What supplier makes the genuine brake pads for BMW f30?

Thanks

There are probably a few OEM suppliers to the factory. Bosch, Jurid, Textar ...

Factory pads are either Jurid, Textar or ATE. I've got a set of Pagids (which now seem unavailable from the only supplier of them (eurocarparts/carparts4less)) and a set of rear TRW's for when mine need changing very soon, both look similar quality to oem pads, although I'm yet to try them obviously.

OE quality pads all have to meet very high regulations these days, so I don't think you can go wrong with them for normal street use.

The Ferodo's or Textar's here look like good options, or plenty of others to choose from:

FWIW, Textar, Mintex and Pagid are all sub-brands of TMD Friction.

Yep, Textar are made in Germany for BMW as genuine BMW pads & also as Textar branded aftermarket pads. Pagid are also made in Germany but only seem to be sold by ECP/carparts4less (same companies), and Mintex are made in Scotland I believe.

Mintex used to be made at Cleckheaton (Mintex-DON/BBA Friction). They still have a facility there but not sure what they manufacture now, if anything.

In the past I have found that franchised dealers are quite often competitively priced for scheduled service parts. BMW TurboPower oil from our local dealer is reasonably priced but they did want to charge me 7 a pop for brake bleed nipples for a MINI R50 a couple of years ago. Same part on eBay from a brake specialist was ten bob.

I got Bmw Bowler Blackburn to price match Doncaster BMW that were selling them for 75 on eBay. Plus brake wear sensor for 30. I know they are 10 on eBay but was sick of annoying dash warning.
