HAMBURG, Germany — MEYLE A.G., a leading manufacturer of high-quality automotive spare parts, is expanding its product range to include the two component brake discs for common BMW and Mercedes models.
The new brake discs, available now, offer "the usual OE qualities such as accurate fit, low offset, reduced weight and the associated fuel savings and decrease in CO2. At the same time, the new brake discs boast high performance, driving comfort and sophisticated design, as is typical of the MEYLE PD line," The company said.
MEYLE is expanding into the aftermarket for brakes with solutions in areas previously reserved for vehicle manufacturers with their original parts, the company said. Seven new references for the two component MEYLE PD brake discs are now available for the BMW models 3 to 8 Series, X3 to X5 and Z4, and for Mercedes C-Class and E-Class models.
The brake discs comprise an aluminum or stamped steel hat riveted to the cast iron friction ring.
In addition, they are ECE-R90-certified and, due to the high-quality surface coating, do not require degreasing, thus ensuring long-lasting protection against corrosion, the company said.
"A higher percentage of carbon makes the two component brake discs exceptionally resistant to heat distortion even in cases of higher thermal stress — for example, on steep mountain descents — for extended driving comfort without vibrations," the company said. "To ensure efficient installation at the workshop, 99% of the brake discs are equipped with a fixing screw."
In North America, the MEYLE brake discs are available through Automont Distributors Inc. (Canada) and ECS Tuning LLC (U.S.).
