Why do European cars need brake pads and rotors replaced at the same time?
Updated 10 Oct 2019
Most Australian’s know that owning a European car can be rather costly, especially when it comes to brake replacements.
The reason why European car owners need to replace their brakes and rotors at the same time is due to most European manufacturers use softer compound materials in their brake rotors to increase braking performance of their vehicles.
It’s great for performance, but unfortunately, this means they wear out faster.
So, in order to restore correct braking performance, the rotors will need to be replaced with the brake pads, which could save you more money in the long run!
