BEDFORD PARK, Ill. (Aug. 2, 2016) — Power Stop L.L.C. has launched Euro-Stop, a line of complete brake kits for European vehicles engineered to meet European ECE-R90 standards of OEM performance and safety.
According to Power Stop, each kit includes a perfectly matched set of pads, rotors, sensors (where applicable) and hardware (where applicable) for those seeking OEM level quality for less money than parts offered by new car dealers.
“Many customers wanted Power Stop to expand its offering to include an OEM-equivalent-quality brake solution for their European vehicles without the high costs associated with OE parts purchased from the car dealer,” said Arvin Scott, Power Stop CEO. “The Euro-Stop brake kits are perfect for the daily driver and our Z23 1-Click Brake kit addresses the spirited daily driver who prefers the upgraded performance of Carbon-Fiber Ceramic technology combined with the benefits of our drilled & slotted performance brake rotors.”
Power Stop said its high-carbon Euro-Stop disc brake rotors' metallurgy improves the coefficient of friction for increased performance; optimizes thermal conductivity for resistance to thermal distortion and cracking; and improves damping qualities to reduce the possibility of brake pad squeal.
The rotors are machined to OES specifications for quiet, smooth braking, the company added. Power Stop also applied its Geomet coating to each rotor for corrosion resistance.
Electronic wear sensors supplied by an OEM and stainless steel hardware are included where applicable, Power Stop said.
The first phase release of the brake kits covers 87 percent of European vehicles on the road in North America, including model year 2000-2013 Audi, BMW, Land Rover, Mercedes, Mini, Porsche, Saab, Volkswagen and Volvo makes.
