Thumbs up Beemer Boneyard Cudo and a brake pad ?

First, I gotta say the folks at Beemer Boneyard are on the ball. I placed an order and received it before my credit card was processed (well, we are both in the northeast, but they sure didn't waste any time getting my order out to the shipper. (Chicago BMW? that's another story....).

Good outfit, Beemer Boneyard.

So, a question: I ordered brake pads and have "A3+" front and rear pads made in France by Carbone Lorraine. Does anyone have experience with these pads and want to comment on them?

Thanks,

Thanks,
Ole Toad has 'em, Curtis. Work just fine. Generate a 'leetle' more brake dust on the rims than the OEMs or the EBCs did, butt that's what they make drive-thru car washes for!!!

Re: Beemer Boneyard Cudo and a brake pad ?

As a general rule, pads that generate more dust are more fade resistant and allow for better modulation of the brake. Witness the front wheels on most european high performance cars.

Yes, BeemerBoneYard is a GREAT company. I live in SoCal and always receive my order fast!! I have used these French pads on my K100LT and now on my K1200LT. They are as good in every respect as the BMW pads plus less expensive. Keep on using them!!!
