BMW Brake Pads in Colombia or Venezuela?

Anyone know if I will be able to find replacement brake pads for my BMW F650GS in Bogotá or Caracas? If so where? Or will I have to order them from home?

I also need a new set of tyres. Prefer TKC80s but the Pirelli MT60 rear I have has been OK. If anyone can recommend a place in Caracas or Bogotá that would be great.

Thanks!

There is a BMW Store in Bogota and you can ask them via email if they have the needet Parts on stock or might be willing to order them:

Bogotá - Autogermana

same with Caracas:

Aye, as Tobi pointed out there is a dealer in Bogota. Nice guys, reasonable shop rate and a friendly mechanic. It would be reasonable to expect that they have parts like your pads on hand, but never hurts to double check availability and pricing ahead of time.
