Want to buy brake components with great pricing and great quality. There is a great way to do this in the modern world by shopping online. Recent surveys have shown that the number of people shopping online has risen dramatically in the last few years as websites have become more user friendly and more trustworthy.
In the fact the number of people who said they would willingly buy brake components and other parts for their cars online has risen to over 8% of the population compared to less than 2% five years ago.
You can now buy brake pads and brake rotors for your car safely online and in many cases get parts that are not available in your local store or brake service station. A friend of mine recently tried to buy brake pads for a Porsche and the main dealer wanted over $1100 for a set of brakes and he managed to find the same parts online from a high quality aftermarket supplier for just $200. That is a major saving and not only was the price better the parts arrived the next day and once fitted have proven to be better than the parts he had in his car before.
The best way to buy brake parts is do a search online for the parts you need and select a website that has good ratings, you can check these guys out on sites like the complaints board dot com if you feel there is something not right about a website. Another guide is to look for paypal and master card logos, these people don’t give out their logos to any old two bit operation so you can be sure that if you buy brake parts from such good sites you will get your products, quickly and the quality does not have to be compromised.
If you buy brake pads think about the condition of your brake rotors and also your brake fluid as you may need those also and buying them all at one time may allow you to get a better overall package price.
The brake business has some excellent players and you can often find suppliers online that are not in your local shops. This is because larger discount chains tend to import their own brake pads and they are in most cases a rather boring “Standard” quality and leave the enthusiast without much choice. If you do decide to buy brake parts from a local store watch out for people who own brand their parts and open the boxes and look on the parts for grade marking such as the FMSI letters which are E for low grade, F for medium grade and G for high friction grade. You should always try to buy brake pads that match your cars original brake spec and in particular on European cars buying brakes that have to conform to R 90 specs that are a lower spec can significantly downgrade the brake effectiveness in your car
