The maintenance requirements of your braking system may not coincide with the vehicle service intervals, however, almost all European vehicles are equipped with sensors that will illuminate a warning light on the instrument cluster when they are close to the end of their service life.
Usually around 1,000 km can be travelled after this light is illuminated before the vehicle will become unsafe to drive. We strongly recommend acting upon any warning light at the earliest possible time to avoid safety risks and excessive damage to your vehicle.
A report on your brake components condition and an estimate of the remaining service life is supplied with every vehicle serviced.
We are now proud to announce the arrival of low dust ceramic brake pads, available for most models we service. This is an almost dust free, long life, no squeal brake pad with a fantastic feel on the brake pedal. The ceramic pads reduce the amount of wear on the brake disc, and reduce by 95% the brake dust build up that stains most magnesium wheels. The cost compared to standard pads is approximately 15% more but the benefits far out weigh the cost. If you love clean wheels and improved braking efficiency, these pads are well worth the small investment.
Pace Auto Werks can provide a standard brake service using OEM (manufacturer approved) components, or an upgrade to a high grade imported rotor and pad package, delivering above average braking efficiency and usually expanding component life. Prices are available upon request for all brake servicing procedures and requirements.
