    Racing Brake XT910 Brake Pad Upgrade For M3P

    Well here goes my first ever post, so go easy on me 😅. I just swapped out the stock P3D pads for the Racing Brake XT910 pads, and I cant believe I didn't do it sooner. Living in Ontario, Canada, one of my worries was how they would perform in the cold weather, but so far there are no downsides...

    Brake Pads

    Hi folks! I have a '17 plate 75D and the brake pads need replacing. The problem is, I have attempted ordering a couple of sets and neither fit! I'm wondering if anyone has a trusted supplier they used, and part number? I have phoned Tesla and they inform me they are made in the Netherlands...

    Screwed up my front brakes. How?

    New-to-me-2014 with 106k miles. The brakes were clearly in need of some attention as there was vibration when braking, so I decided to order new Rotors and Pads from RockAuto: CENTRIC 12052002 BREMBO P09004N Those parts should be correct. So, I believe that I did it "by the book" and removed...

    Rhythmic rubbing/griding noise from brakes

    No, it's not a pebble ;) M3 performance with 10k miles. Any time the car is moving, I can hear a grinding, or rubbing noise from my front driver's side. I can hear it from inside the car while driving if it's quiet, but it's of course much more noticeable with the windows down, driving near...

    BeastMode13's Dual Purpose P3D Build Journey

    I have the curse of being an enthusiast that can't just leave things alone. Perhaps a few of you out there can relate to this. :) After starting several threads on installations and track performance related FYI, I find myself going back to those threads time and time again when I'm working...

    Brake pads fused to discs

    Don't know if anyone had this problem but it was a bugger. Model 3P purchased Aug. 19. Washed my car, put it in the garage, went on 10 days trip, got home, car would not move! Two tow trucks, multiple calls to Tesla (service center is a mile from my house but they wouldn't send mobile...

    Racing Brake XT910 vs XT970

    This is a comparison between RB XT910 and RB XT970 as daily driver pad. RB XT910 is part of the Racing Brake BBK upgrade I installed a month ago. You can read about the brake job here. The caliper is a 4-pot just like stock P3 Brembo caliper. Unlike Brembo with a pair of same-sized pistons...

    Horrendous brake feel

    Stock brakes on the M3 standard RWD feel horrendous. Non-linear feel, inspires trepidation rather than confidence. They feel like really cold racing brakes. Even my wife commented on this. Hasn't gotten any better in 1mo of ownership. I saw other threads on this but no solutions. Is this...

    Factory Brake Pad Material

    Does anyone know which type of brake pads Tesla use as factory default ? I am asking as I've read ceramic brake pads generate the least brake dust and with summer rolling in, I want to keep my rims (especially the fronts) looking clean.

    Anybody worn out their brake pads?

    Because of regenerative braking, the brake pads get little wear. I was wondering if anybody has worn out their brake pads? (I'm not talking about compulsive people who have replaced them "just in case" or replaced the pads because they didn't like the OEM pads, etc.) Has anyone actually worn out...
