While some brake maintenance is limited to new pads, the best solution is to replace both the pads and rotors. MINI recommends that you replace the rotors whenever you replace pads. You can 'turn' the rotors to save some money, but be aware that turning rotors will:
For best performance and longevity, replace the rotors and pads at the same time!
ZIMMERMANN - Quality begins with the material.
Over the last few years, an increasing number of brake discs which are not identical to the respective original part in terms of their design and function have been sold on the market. Tests have revealed that basic material specifications in particular, but also changes to tolerances result in deformations and increased cracking of brake discs.
Otto Zimmermann GmbH has been performing inertia dynamometer tests and driving tests together with TÜV NORD Mobilität GmbH & Co. KG on an ongoing basis for more than 10 years, at great financial cost. On the basis of these tests, we are able to offer the free spare parts market spare parts of the same quality.
Zimmermann brake discs are "spare parts of the same quality" as original brake discs. The third-country brake discs tested by TÜV NORD do not meet this claim.
In all the brake discs tested, third-country products break considerably more quickly. The Zimmermann brake disc and the original product therefore have a significantly longer life expectancy.
The thermo-mechanical deformation is identical for the Zimmermann brake disc and the original brake disc. The third-country brake disc falls significantly below this level with respect to virtually all the criteria tested.

EBC Ultimax Brake Pads
If you simply need a quality OEM replacement pad, look no further than the Ultimax2™ brake pad. The Ultimax2™ brake pad is a beautifully engineered brake compound that lasts well, produces minimal dust and is the perfect choice for the urban or daily driver. Why spend more if all you need is a quality replacement pad.
The Ultimax2™ brake pad is a total NON METALLIC pad containing ZERO steel fibre making this a cleaner pad far less aggressive to cast iron brake rotors.
Ultimax2™ has also been graded Code “N” by the USA brake ratings system meaning this receives the TOP award for its environmentally friendly status and has also achieved the much coveted GG friction rating, almost unheard of in the automotive brake Industry.
This equates to a clean pad, that lasts longer, extends disc life and emits ZERO toxicity and is a true PAD FOR THE FUTURE. The brake effect with the GG ratting is truly amazing and delivers powerful braking at first brake application. Ultimax2™ has also been widely tested in cold and damp conditions in Northern Europe and Scandinavia and in the Caribbean hot and humid temperatures where brake noise was ZERO. Available for front and rear sets.
MINI recommends the brake fluid be replaced every 2 years. See Mini Cooper Brake Fluid Pentosin DOT4 for replacement brake fluid.
Preparing the rear caliper on the MINI to accept new brake pads requires a special tool to retract and 'rotate' the rear caliper piston. See the aftermarket Rear Cliper Retraction Tool to prep the rear brake caliper. This tool ensures the right amount of turn as the piston gets retracted.
