    I used power stop on my 2010 autobiography and they perform great. My 08 is 128k on the 2 set or rotors (at 50k) and i normaly get 50k miles out of the brakes on both my rovers and i tow with both of them.

    If the brembo ceramics have no noise, little dust, and cost less id say theyre a win. Will try them when my current pads are done.

    Had Hawks Ceramics pad done 12k miles ago on 2011 RR SC. No dust but noise is persistent on slow braking to a traffic light. Little more pressure on brakes takes care of noise.

    Pagid/ textar / jurid are all part of the same group - so probably similar formulations for the same vehicle and they are typically the oem supplier in Europe too. The softer pads have better cold bite but generate lots of dust - so the ceramics (like akebono) give a little in cold performance but less dust. At temp, ceramic performs better, but not as good as carbon - that is used for track pads - but those typically have noise and cold performance issues - so take your pick !

    I generally agree (not brake specific) about O.E. parts... and will often seek out the OEM parts minus the auto-makers box... best of both worlds. OEM part without the markup for the automobile emblem on it.
    I don’t have a lot of a faith with Land Rover regarding supplier selection or design though. They have re-sourced the oil filters to China. The Land Rover Mahle oil filters say “Made in China” right on the box. I’m refuse to pay $30 for a Chinese made cartridge filter. I doubt LR has even stuck with the same supplier for brake pads since 2012. It has been shopped around to the lowest bidder 5x to feed the aftermarket/service demand.
    I am willing to sacrifice some initial bite with ceramic pads to avoid the dust and squeal. If I can save some money in the process... even better.
    Also good on you for getting 40K miles. That’s more than 2x the average life for the SC. My wife drives like a grandma and we are getting 15-18K miles. So you must really baby the brakes.

    What makes you think manufacturers go with “best” pads as opposed to ones they get the best price on? Manufacturers are notorious for not utilizing beat in class parts and to think the oem pads are the best stopping is a conclusion reached without evidence. Im not saying buy the cheapest pads, im saying buy the best pads. Unlikely the oem ones stop better than all of the other available options.

    Hard on brakes. Are the replacement factory pads, or aftermarket? 40,000 miles first replacement on front and rears. Second replacement on the fronts at 80K.
    Factory pads is the only way to go. I cheap skated on my XJR brakes and I hated it. So you if you play hard you got to pay.

    I did brakes on my Range Rover 2011 in December 2018. This is the second set 83,000 miles. First set done around 40,000 miles. (shown here) .
    Installing factory pads and EBC rotors. I also do a brake fluid flush. I would rather live with brake dust , than poor performing brakes. So I'm good to go for another 40K.

    So no brembo pads for the back? I just had my fronts done so just need the rears now. Will have to check on where I can find the rears.

    Too funny, We have the ML350 4-matic I see you have the GLE. Looks like we have somewhat similar taste in cars.

    First brake job on mine was 16,552 miles (Fronts only)
    Second - 24,313 miles (Rears only)
    Third - 43,000 miles (Both front and rears)
    Fourth - 66,461 miles (Fronts only)

    Now at 73,000 miles my rears are squealing and dealership says they are at 3-5 mm in the yellow.


    Lastly, does anyone feel that the truck is underpowered brake wise? It seems like mine at least struggles under the heavy weight of the vehicle. They also seem to fade quickly with more spirited driving. I will have to consider the pads you all have mentioned I hate the squeeling.


    I would love to know recommendations as well on where to order the brembo pads (thanks for answering my question on my thread that our rides do use brembo pads)

    BillConn what year is your 7 series? I had the 2008 750LI and 08' 750I back in the day loved that car.
    I don't feel the brakes are underpowered at all on the S/C but at the same time, I have not really pushed the truck too hard. Its mostly soccer-mom duty and light towing, so fade is a non-issue.
    As for the Brembo pads. It looks like they only sell them for the fronts. Price is fantastic @ $44/pr from Rock Auto https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...502897&jsn=389
    I have no experience with them, but ill give em a shot. I don't think the Hawks will be worth the premium @ $130/pr.

    For the 7-series, I have an E38 right now. Probably the best 7-series BMW has ever built. I had an E66 750il before and while the car was really nice, it just isn't the same as an E38. The technology in the E66 took away the pure drivers experience of the E38.
