Three new brake pad SKUs were added to extend coverage for many late-model vehicles. Of these, two new part numbers have been added to the premium QuietCast line extending coverage for domestic and European vehicles. Hardware kits are included for select applications. One new part number also has been added to the Bosch Blue line for additional European vehicle coverage.
All Bosch premium QuietCast Disc Brake Pads feature friction formulas specific to the application – semi-metallic, NAO or copper-free ceramic – and include synthetic lubricant in each package. The two new QuietCast SKUs introduced this month offer a copper-free ceramic upgrade for semi-metallic friction formulas on select applications.
Bosch QuietCast Brake pads are available for 2008-’13 BMW 128i; 2013-’15 Ford F250 Super Duty, Ford F350 Super Duty and Ford F450 Super Duty. These two new part numbers cover 556,000 units in operation.
Bosch Blue Brake Pads feature OE-style, multi-layer shims that provide superior noise dampening characteristics, the company says. For added protection, Bosch Blue Brake Pads come towel-wrapped for select applications. The material used is similar to the shop towels that technicians use on a daily basis when working on their customers’ vehicles.
The single Bosch Blue part number fits various Jaguar models including 2005-’08 Jaguar S-type, 2009-’15 Jaguar XF, 2006-’09 Jaguar XJ8 and more, covering 44,000 units in operation.
