Carbotech Brake Pads are in stock! OAKOS Automotive


Thats right 1Addicts! OAKOS Automotive has a full selection of Carbotech front & rear pads for the 135's Brembo calipers IN STOCK!!

Thanks to everyone that voted in our poll about which compounds we should stock.

These pads are MASSIVE in size!!! No wonder our cars stop SO well!!! I put a front pad next to a Subaru WRX STi (4 piston Brembos) and it made the STi pad look like a Yugo pad!

All Carbotech pads ship for free to the lower 48 states via UPS Ground and we ALWAYS email you the tracking number!


FRONT




REAR

Great news, so the $155 is for both front calibers correct, 4 pads total?

Yep, One set = 4 pads

If you need a more aggressive compound you can choose any of the other pads types. The dollar amount next to the compound type is the up charge to upgrade to that compound.

Do see any problems with running say the Panther+ Ax6 on the front and stock on the back until you have back pads? Or should I wait until I can put them on all four corners?

There is no problem with that at all. Quite a few of our Subaru customers run XP8 in the front and AX6 in the rear. Mixing and matching compounds front and rear should not cause any issues.

I have no plans to track the car and will give up a little in brake performance to drastically lessen the brake dust. No noise a must. Which would you recommend, Panther? From a friction standpoint (MU) and temp range, any idea what the stock pads are?

I would suggest the Bobcat pad if you are not going to be on the track. There are no specs for the OEM pad that I have been able to find any place. The Bobcats are going to dust less than a stock pad based on what I have seen with Bobcats on Subarus.

I would be very concerned by how much this would throw off the brake balance of the car.

Do these Bobcat pads have new backing plates? Also, are we going to require shims?

The baking plates are included. Carbotech rivets as well as glues the pad material to the backing plate. The backing plates are an exact copy of the OEM pad including the cutout for the pad wear sensor. No shims are needed, these are direct replacements for the stock pads.

Thanks for the info there Clayton. I do have one more question though. I am sure a lot of people have seen the destroyed brakes thread and I am wondering how similar the temperature range is with the OEM pads?

Just looking to see how they compare is all. :iono:

I have seen the "brake thread" and it concerned me until it came to light that it was only a small ceramic insert that was cracking not the piston itself. Having done three track days in my own 135 already on the stock pads I am quite impressed with BMW's stock pad choice as I still have almost 50% of the fronts left. There are no published specs for the OEM pads that I have seen so I cant answer your question about the temp ranges. That being said I cant wait for spring to arrive so I can get some XP8 pads installed to go along with my KW V3 and hit the track HARD!

Bump for the guys below the snow belt that can still do track days...These pads are the answer! With compounds for the mildest street driver up through a full out race pad!
