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.

You'd think that if they are releasing a new break part number that they would also make it a madatory change through a TSB or something?
I mentioned the brake pad issue and the new brake pads to the parts guy at the dealership where I bougth my 3, and he had NO clue what I was talking about. He had the classic deer-in-the-headlights look. How do you explain ANYTHING to someone like that? He wasn't even curious to inquire further what I was experiencing. Sheesh.
