We just bought a 2017 BMW i3 from a dealer and the service for brake fluid is overdue from over a year ago. Also, the brakes seem not so strong when trying to make a complete stop. The car has only 33K miles so I assume these are original pads on the car. Does anyone know how long do the brake pads last on these cars and if it is about time to change them? I know it is dependent on the driving habits of an individual but I had read in my research on this vehicle that because its one pedal driving, the brake pads last a little longer than normal cars? My understanding is that you do a brake fluid flush and brake pads together? If anyone has done this before, what kind of $$$ are we talking about for getting it done at an independent BMW mechanic?
Any advice would be helpful!
PS: We have had the car for 4 days now and are absolutely loving it. Very happy with the purchase and glad that we made a switch to EV life.
