Sitting in the driver’s seat of your BMW 530i for the first time sends a thrill down your spine. It’s a vehicle of masterful detail and design. It’s the kind of car that gets called commanding, athletic, and intelligent without accusation of overstatement. After all, there is a reason BMW is called “The Ultimate Driving Machine.”
Yet, like all creations of marvelous engineering, the proof is in the details. So, when it’s time to upgrade your brake pads, don’t settle for second-rate. NRS galvanized brake pads are the best choice for your BMW 530i.
Why are brake pads so important
Cars need brake pads to stop. That much is obvious. But how important are the brake pads themselves?
Brake pads are a vital part of the braking system of your car. They take the kinetic energy of the car moving forward and translate it into thermal energy, also known as heat. Heat is a lot easier to dissipate than kinetic energy and so this transformation allows the car to slow to a stop.
Brake pads use friction to make this transformation possible. Because of this, they are subject to extreme heat during braking. Brake pads made of cheap or degraded materials can fail when exposed to this heat.
Even in high quality brake pads, the rubbing of the friction material during braking eventually wears away the brake pad. When this happens the brake pad needs to be replaced.
How often do you need to change your brake pads
There are a number of factors that influence the life of your BMW 530i brake pads. Brakes subjected to the stop and go traffic of the city will wear more quickly than those on a car that spends more time cruising on the highway. Likewise, brakes wear more quickly for drivers who ride the brake as they drive or have a habit of accelerating only to slam on the brakes every time they want to slow down.
Additionally, the material used in the brake pad’s construction plays an important role. Organic brake pads are inexpensive, but they tend to wear out quickly. Ceramic brake pads are on the opposite end of the spectrum. They can be very expensive, but last a long time. Semi-metallic rides somewhere in the middle.
Because of all this variability, brake pads tend to last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles. However, high quality brake pads, such as NRS galvanized brake pads can last over 100,000 miles. Here is WHY.
NRS brake pads are the best choice for your BMW 530i
Quality brake pads make a world of difference, especially for performance vehicles like your BMW 530i. NRS brake pads are made with performance in mind. They use a fully galvanized backing plate to protect against dangerous corrosion, extending their life.
NRS brake pads do not use an adhesive like traditional brakes. A patented system of in-situ hooks attaches the friction material to the brake backing this is called mechanical attachment. This ensures delamination never occurs in NRS brake pads. This physical attachment means the extreme heat generated during braking will not cause the brake pads to delaminate or fail.
