Brakes are a vital part of the safety, function, and reliability of any vehicles. They not only protect you and your vehicle from harm’s way, but everyone else who is on the road with you as well. When it comes to taking care of your brakes, there’s simply no need to compromise the integrity with aftermarket components or less than perfect workmanship or mechanical knowledge.
Brake Service for Performance & Sport Vehicles
We strictly use the respective OEM brake pads and rotors for all of our BMW, Audi and Mercedes repairs. On the request of the customer, we also utilize Brembo brakes, a highly respected and extremely reliable brake manufacturer for a variety of performance vehicles. We refuse to compromise quality when it comes to brakes. We have sampled scores of brake pads and have found nothing matches the reliability, bite, noise suppression, and performance of OEM pads and rotors from BMW, Audi and Mercedes. These brake rotors are made with the highest quality steels and alloys and provide extra resistance to brake warping, scoring, and rust. Savings found with other aftermarket brands never legitimize the poorer braking and shorter functional lifespans of aftermarket rotors and pads. The safety of you and your loved ones depends greatly on this vital component.
Most cars utilize a hydraulic system to power the brakes and create the stopping force. Brake fluid is the liquid of this system that moves the necessary components into place when you need to stop. Fresh brake fluid isn’t talked about nearly as much as new brake pads, but it can actually dramatically increase your braking power and should be changed often. If you aren’t sure, you can always check your vehicle’s maintenance manual for more detailed information on maintenance intervals.
Rotors / Brake Drums
We’ve found that the average brake rotor needs to be replaced every 60,000 miles, but they may wear out faster depending on how you drive, as well as what conditions you typically drive in. You can always bring your vehicle in for a quick brake check-in to see how many miles you have left on your current rotors.
Like any hydraulic system, your brakes use hoses to transport the brake fluid to all the right places. Cracks, clogs, or other issues with these hoses can negatively impact the amount of pressure your brakes apply and should definitely be checked if you notice you have any issues stopping.
