    Upgrade brake fluid for stock rotors and pads?

    The 35 is due for rotors and pads soon, and for the longest time its had a spongier pedal than the E90 330 (same brakes, but replaced 7k ago). And even before the 330 got the brakes changed, the pedal has always been softer on the 335. Both cars are E90s. The 35 does get driven a bit harder, no track days, but im wondering if i should upgrade the fluid? I was considering uping to the Stoptech OEM replacements, but free maintenance is free Click here to enlarge

    Cliffs: 335 getting new brakes, upgrade fluid or have them flush it with the OEM stuff?

    I would have them do the free maintenance and then consider upgrading the fluid afterward.

    that's what im leaning towards, a buddy of mine is a tech at the dealer and said if i wanted different fluid he would flush it for me when he does the brakes.

    I see, that is a good deal then. I would ask Camber-Toe what they think.
