Some European OE manufacturers now request Akebono products for their North American vehicles.

Comments about EURO Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

These pads don't feel quite the same as OEM Mercedes pads, which is fine. They stop the car perfectly well and have enough friction to cause the ABS to engage. That's really all you need for a street car.

Two problems.

1. The pads come with noise supression shims, clamped to the backing plates. These shims have ears on them that wrap around to keep them in plcae. These ears interfere with the spring clip that holds the pads inside the caliper, making it impossible to put the spring clip back in correctly. I ended up breaking off these two tabs. Alternatively, I suppose you could reuse the shims from your outgoing brake pads.

2. These pads come with two wear sensors in the box. Problem is, you actually need *four* sensors for this job. One per brake pad.

Those are pretty minor niggles though. These pads are fine and I'd buy them again.

A kit short of a complete set

By 

from San Jose, CA

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Nice pads

Cons

  • Kit short of a full set
  • Only 2 sensors for 4 pads

Best Uses

    Comments about EURO Ultra Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

    There are 4 sensors needed, one for each brake pad provided. Yet the kit only contains 2 sensors for the 4 pads delivered. Calling this a kit is misleading. Packaging is bad as all the pads came loose inside the package, causing them to knock against one another inside the box during transportation.
