Luxury Brake Repair

From BMW to Volkswagen owners, we have you covered. European vehicles require specific procedures and high quality parts to perform correctly. When replacing brakes on a european vehicle, it's important not to sacrifice quality. This is why we use trusted brands such as Akebono, Centric, Hella Pagid & Holstein.

For european vehicle owners, it's highly recommended to replace brake wear sensors with every brake job. Brake sensors notify the driver when brake service is due. The brake service reminder light is not the same as the 'Anti-Lock Brake' or regular 'Brake' light. If any of these lights appear on your dashboard, we recommend having them professionally diagnosed and repaired. Brake sensors sit in the brake pad backing. The sensor has a small metal strip on the brake pad end. Once the brake pad wears down past a predetermined point, this metal strip makes contact with the rotor and essentially 'breaks' the circuit; tripping the dashboard light.

BMW Brake Repair

BMW utilizes its own Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system to notify the driver when service is due. Service reminders such as oil life, spark plugs replacement and brake pad wear are included. Higher end BMW's also utilize a 'brake-by-wire' braking system which eliminates the mechanical connection between your brake pedal and master cylinder. This system relies on data gathered through various sensors and inputs. Because of their delicate nature, it's important to handle these components with the utmost caution and care.

Mercedes-Benz Brake Repair

The Mercedes-Ben Brake Assits (BAS®) is another example of 'brake-by-wire' systems. Mercedes' Sensatronic Brake Control system uses sensor data from the wheels, steering column, brake pedal and other components to control the amound of brake fluid pressure. In the event of an electrical failure, the system is designed to employ standard braking. Electronic brake calipers are used and require special procedures in order to service the brakes.
