Bendix Euro Plus: An In Depth Look


European cars are brilliant and are packed with the latest technology and safety innovations. However they carry the stigma of being difficult and expensive to maintain. Unless correctly maintained using good quality parts, or they can easily develop expensive problems.

The braking system on a European car is engineered for the high speed highways and roads of Europe, as well as challenging weather and road conditions. Most European cars come from factory with brake pads that stop really well, but with the trade-off of being extremely dusty.

Bendix Euro+ brake pads are formulated to provide the same or even better stopping power, but without the brake dust. The Euro+ has been road and lab tested to leave less dust on wheels
than factory brake pads.

Mechanics and car workshops prefer the Bendix Euro+ brake pad for headache free installations. Each set of Euro+ brake pads comes with the right shims, clips and bolts required for a straight forward install.

Included with the Euro+ brake pads are the most popular brake wear sensors for cars that require it, for fuss free bolt in solution. The Bendix brake sensor is designed to be a direct OEM replacement, containing all the grommets, hooks or clips for easy installation.

The supplied Bendix sensors will fit most popular European cars sold in Australia. Some European cars may feature different brake sensors despite using the same brake pads. If this is the case, please contact the nearest Bendix stockist for the right brake sensor to suit your vehicle.

Bendix’s specially coated shims ensure unrivalled smooth and quiet braking. The Euro+ also feature the high friction Bendix blue titanium stripe, allowing for full braking performance instantly, without the need to bed the brakes in.

The Euro+ meets strict standards and passed tests set by ECE Regulation 90. This means that brake pads’ frictional characteristics deviate from OEM standards by no more than 15%. ECE R90 stringently tests the Euro+ for braking capability, speed sensitivity and cold performance. Other tests include burnishing and performance checks.

When you fit Euro+, you are fitting quality brake pads that are specifically designed for European vehicles as OE replacements. The Euro+ is guaranteed to provide optimum performance, braking synergy and driving comfort that surpasses OEM brake pads for European cars.
