I have been recommended a brakes specialist that deals in brakes and only brakes.
I have received an email from them asking how they differ from BMW genuine and this is the reply....
The pads will be a premium European ECE90R graded pad which tells us that it is OE specification. It could be in a variety of boxes, but it won’t be a Brembo, BMW or Ferrari box.
The rotors will be a premium European ECE90R grade as well. Same story with the boxes.
This makes sense to me... but am I missing something here? The price difference is these rotors and pads are 65% the price of BMW genuine. I don't want to scrimp on brakes but if the above is true I am about to buy more or less the same thing, just not paying a premium fro the BMW name?
Any questions that need answering before I buy them?
NB, I don't intend to drive on the Autobahn or alpine passes. The car is a family cruiser.
