      Only voted BMW OEM, as bike under warranty,  Have got a set of EBC's in the garage which will be next on. Had them on every other bike with no complaints.
      Vini, Vidi, Velcro....... I came,  I saw, I stuck around.

        To maintain the T&C's of the BMW Insured Warranty, the Brembo "Genuine" pads could be used.

        Quote from the BMW IW policy handbook, "Genuine parts, or parts of equivalent specification must be used".

          I understand what you're saying but it's just BMW jacking up prices for no performance gain over other as good products.

            A set of BMW OEM pads are £234.33.

            Brembo "Genuine" pads at full price are £189.00.

            Brembo "Premium" pads are £94.30.

            It's hard to believe that there is no difference between the two Brembo products, one of which is twice the price of the other.

                A full set of double sintered EBC, front and rear, equaled price of just one disc worth of BMW's. Seems to stop just as well.
