Though, there is a fly in an ointment.

Laziness of a BMW construction engineer (otherwise I can’t explain why) was the reason why the geometry of brake pads 395-36__385-24 BMW X5M E70 and BMW X5M F85 absolutely identical!
Apart from the adjusting screw hole of rear axle.. which makes no difference..
So, this way we have a very wide brake rotor blade and an increased weight.
