How often should you change your 2020 BMW 230i’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.

Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get BMW 230i brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
