I just got the call from my dealer and the updated pads for the 3 are available. They are for cars made before march, I think, newer vehicles had them installed at the factory. The Part number is:


The dealership should install this for free, but most likely you will have to argue a bit. At least I won't have to wash rear wheels every week any more.

That's cool.

I've got 5000 and some clicks on the car, when I do the oil change at 8000 I'll get the breaks done (front mounts and rear pads) and probably get my water pump looked at since it makes some odd noises at low RPM. Other than that, the car is perfectomundo!

I picked up my car last week and the rear brakes make an awful grinding noise that is quite noticeable and there is more break dust on the back than the front.
EXACTLY what I'm getting. My first oil change is fast approaching and I'm planning on getting those thuper duper padth for the rear and the new mounts for the front. Literally the only 2 issues I'm having right now are fixable!

Well there is one more thing, but it's something no one else has reported on. Just some really nasty noises from the engine at low RPM's. Probably a bad water pump or alternator.
