The new generation of Performance Friction Z-Rated®
pads are an extension of the Performance Friction Carbon Metallic®
brand, specifically engineered for high-performance and/or
severe-duty usage. Not your mother's Z Rated pads in the past that
were an incredibly effective pad manufactured originally for truck
fleets from the local parts store! With relatively low dust levels
lower than stock pads), these pads have excellent bite, torque,
and modulation characteristics. Excellent for auto-X and light
track use as well. Elevate your BMW's braking system to the
sales associates will try to ensure accuracy of the products
ordered based on the year and model provided by the customer.
ultimate responsibility still falls onto the customer to select the
correct parts and type the current year and model in the specified

can be found with the VIN number in the driver’s door jam. If there
is any confusion in the listing please contact one of our sales
representatives for clarification.

Excellent Pad for HPDEs
From Anonymous of Sonoma, California on 11/12/2012.
These pads are great on the street, but get some heat in them and they bite like mad on the track. I'm an Instructor for NASA and I have freaked out many of my fellow instructors with the braking power of these pads. I'm sure the more track-oriented PF pads deliver the goods even more dramatically, but I have never managed to fade these pads in any way in a typical session. Just get some heat in them during your out-lap and they will do you proud. Highly recommended and I have converted a number of folks to these pads and all are more than satisfied.
Live up to their reputation.
From John C. of Camarillo, California on 10/17/2012.
If you take your daily driver to the track you have to find a compromise between the quietness, initial bite, and low dust of OEM-style pads, or the high-temperature hardcore stopping power for the track. This pad sits squarely in the middle. It is completely quiet and fairly low-dust, but the initial bite does not compare to OEM-style pads. No more one-toe braking. The intial bite improves dramatically after a proper bedding in, but it's still not what you're used to. When these reach operating temperature they really shine. On the track they bite way harder than your stock pads and won't fade during a casual track day. As a guy who drives his car to work and does 3 or 4 track days a year, this seems like a perfect compromise.
Good for street and light track
From Anonymous of Santa Cruz, California on 9/10/2012.
After my kid cooked new Metal Masters on his first track day we switched him to the PFC Z-rated pads. They're suitable for both street and fairly fast track driving with little dust, no noise, and no fade. Wish they would secure them inside the box with a rubber band or something so they didn't beat against each other in shipping.
Good for what they are...
From Jason C of Parker, Texas on 6/12/2012.
These are nice pads for the street, however I would STRONGLY suggest different pads for DE events. Z's are nice for low dust and longevity, but they are not built for the track. I swap pads before and after track days, as the stopping power difference is substantial!
