Actually, the dealers don’t sell ‘Brembo’ rotors… it’s an aftermarket German supplier, as I recall.. they say made in Germany on them. Brembo manufacturers in Italy for the EU market; Mexico and USA for the NA market, there’s much OEM business in NA; and China, for all markets. Most aftermarket Brembo part numbers have a “C” buried in the number string. China! (Brake pads may have a Brembo logo, but are made by Pagid or Textar, div., TMD Friction, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nisshinbo…a Japanese company…) A long way from Brembo, the Italian brake manufacturer.

Not sure if you have SQ7 money, but you certainly have SQ7 service\maintenance mentality.
$2k USD on pads\rotors! :rolleyes:
Did you at least get all new hardware, sensors, park brake shoes and lube with that?

Dealers only sell sensors, pads, and rotors in their $2,000 brake job quote… non of them fit new pad hardware… a critical satisfaction mistake… this raises the likelihood of chatter and noise due to misalignment of components… all my brake kits include these critical hardware parts as necessary, all at a fraction of dealer prices..
