European cars such as Volvo, BMW, & Mercedes to name a few, pride themselves on having better features which include braking systems. These cars are designed and spec’d with Brake pads and brake rotors that are softer than those found on domestic cars. This is in part why European cars tend to need brake rotors more often than the average domestic or Asian car. Most aftermarket companies manufacture their brake pads and rotors from harder materials. While they may last longer, they are more prone to brake noise and most do not stop as well as the OEM supplied brakes your European car came with. Although the brake rotors on your Volvo or BMW may need replaced more often the plus side is a much higher level of stopping power.
