Factory Brake Pads vs. Aftermarket Brake Pads
Genuine Mercedes-Benz brake pads are made specifically for your Mercedes-Benz model and specifications. They have been tested by the manufacturer to perform best for the safety of your Mercedes-Benz. Aftermarket brake pads may be made of a harder, low-quality material, which will result in premature wear to the rotors, produce squeaks and squeals, and may not live up to the standards of stopping distance and safety that genuine factory parts provide. This could mean the difference between a close call and serious accident should they need to be put to the test.
