The right brake components for your BMW, Mercedes Benz or Porsche

The importance of choosing the right brake pads and rotors for your BMW, Mercedes Benz or Porsche. This is one of the most important purchase other than tires you will ever make on your fine car.

The average consumer knows little about brake pad materials or friction coefficient of the brake pads and perhaps even less about the brake rotors, brake discs. The safest bet is original brake components, but are there better choices?

Yes there are in most cases, made by very respected brake component manufacturers whom has decades of know how and engineering expertise in this field.

For instance Brembo is one of them when the big well known luxury or performance car manufacturers need a high end braking system they approach Brembo.

Brembo brake for MiniBrembo is number one they also equip over 90 percent of the F1 cars and cars involved in most Motorsports.

The only other competitor to Brembo is Akebono, whom is the sole braking system supplier to McLaren F1 and McLaren road cars. Naturally we use both respective manufacturers on our clients cars, if they are looking to improve their cars braking performance.

Both braking system manufacturer has a vehicle specific friction coefficient application which has a more ceramic composition and produce 80 percent less brake dust, so you don’t have to clean your pretty alloy wheels so often.

Please be advised! There some inferior braking products sold  over the Internet which has been imported from dubious sources and may cause permanent damage to your and others health by having asbestos in them, which is a well known fact it is a carcinogen.

Asbestos poisoning is a serious issue, which could effect your or your loved ones health, since when you apply the brakes, the brake pad material will wear off the brake pad and will float in the air which could cause lung cancer. Asbestos is a carcinogen and has been banned in the west except in third world countries.

This is a serious matter, please protect your and others health by using reputable friction materials from known accredited manufacturers.

We highly encourage everyone to choose the best available components for their fine automobile, your and others life depends on it.

We wish you all the best and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you and have a safe trip.

New Mercedes Benz coupe is very fast

The Mercedes Benz C250 Coupe blends great fuel economy with enough power to please speed-hungry drivers.

Mercedes-Benz has covered all the bases with the introduction of the all-new C-Class Coupe.

Three models share the same sleek AMG inspired lines but offer three distinct levels of performance and luxury. And after a long absence, the C250 sees the return of a four cylinder engine to the Mercedes-Benz lineup. But this is no ordinary 1.8-litre four-cylinder.

It features direct injection, dual balance shafts and a turbocharger that delivers 201 horsepower to the rear wheels and dashes to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds while sipping just 6.4 L/100 km on the highway. It’s called having your strudel and eating it.

The C350 ups the ante with a 3.5-litre, 302 horsepower V6 while the over the top AMG C63 has somehow found space under the hood to squeeze in the 6.2-litre, 481 horsepower V8.

This will rocket you to 100 km/h in an eye watering 4.4 seconds and has a potential terminal speed of 280 km/h. Not around here, but in Germany on the autobahn….
