BMW 325Ci / 325i E46 2005, 1-Click Front and Rear Brake Kit (K872) by PowerStop®. Front and Rear Drilled and Slotted Rotors and Z16 Ceramic Brake Pads. Don’t overpay a dealer for traditional brake parts when you can get superior benefits of ceramic pads and cross-drilled rotors in the PowerStop 1-Click Brake kit. These components are used in racing and offer better stopping power, longer life, reduced brake fade, and lower dust buildup compared to original equipment parts. Power Stop brake replacement components are manufactured to tight tolerances so fit and function is never compromised on your vehicle. 2-year/24,000 mile manufacturer warranty.
Factory original brake pads are made of metallic compounds featuring a large percentage of steel wool. As they grip steel rotors to create the friction that allows your vehicle to stop, abrasive wear is significant. Rotors wear down faster and the metal scraping from steel fibers can cause loud squealing that varies with temperature variations and weather conditions. When driven hard, metallic brake pads can generate excess heat buildup to cause the formation of grip-reducing hot spots on brake rotors. Many automakers that develop high performance models capable of high speeds will attempt to offset these disadvantages by reducing the metal content in brake pads, creating a softer material that grips better at fast speeds with less noise. However, these soft brake pads wear out faster and produce large amounts of visible black dust that soils aluminum wheels and ultimately becomes corrosive to finishes applied on them.
Power Stop offers a solution to the woes of underperforming factory brake parts with the 1-Click Front and Rear Brake Kit. It features brake pads made of ceramic compounds instead of traditional metallic ones, and comes complete with rotors that are cross-drilled and grooved for superior heat disbursement. Used in championship racing where 200 mile-per-hour speeds quickly generate blistering heat, ceramic brake pads offer the natural ability to stay cool under the most severe conditions. When ceramic brake pads are combined with perforated rotors, heat buildup is reduced so extensively that brake fade rarely occurs due to fluid reaching boiling temperature. Ceramic brake pads are far quieter due to their higher resonant frequency undetectable by human ears, so squealing is not an issue. And finally, ceramic compounds last longer and produce finer, less obtrusive dust that does not stick to most wheel surfaces.
While the many advantages of ceramic brake pads and cross-drilled brake rotors typically come at a high cost, CARiD offers you the superior all-around performance of these parts with value-priced kits from Power Stop, a leading high-volume manufacturer of brake components since the 1990s. You don’t need a high-performance vehicle to enjoy the benefits these brake kits offer, and you might find your dealer charging a similar price while giving you less. We invite you contact our knowledgeable specialists seven days a week for help with any questions you have on Power Stop brake parts at 800-505-3274.
Founded in 1997 in Southern California, PowerStop began with the goal of bringing the benefits of superior brake components at a reasonable cost to amateur racing and backyard performance enthusiasts everywhere. Company management and engineers believed then, as they do today, that better brakes make driving more enjoyable and safer for any vehicle, terrain, and driving style – not just racing. They developed a philosophy that while brake components cannot be superior without the most advanced materials, they also cannot perform in a superior fashion without matching the exact tolerances of each and every individual vehicle they are created for. Relentless development and testing led to brake pads, rotors, drum shoes, and other related components that delivered uncompromising fit and operation, and Power Stop’s customer base grew exponentially from positive word of mouth. The company still has its original passion for creating the best products at the best possible prices, so when it comes to replacement brake components for your vehicle, Power Stop is the only name you need to know.

The pads and rotors that came in this kit were a perfect fit for my car and seem to be of high quality. Installation was simple, except for the suggested pad bedding procedure which required some crazy driving in my neighborhood. So far there has been no squeaking when applying the brakes, and no noticeable dust buildup. I bought this kit instead of getting less expensive OEM parts from a local auto parts store because I wanted to upgrade my Subaru's braking performance, as I live part of the year in the mountains and noticed fading and vibration from the stock brakes after hard service. Hopefully the cross-drilled and slotted rotors in this kit will solve that problem. They look cool too.
This was my first time basically doing anything on my car, I'm not much of a mechanic, but after following simple instructions, I was able to install these quickly and without any difficulties. Aside from that, these are excellent brakes and rotors, they exceeded my expectations, and I love them!
These brakes suprised me on how good they actually are. I really bought them for the looks and was hoping that they might stop my truck as well. They do stop the truck! They stop really well actually. I would definitely buy these again.
The brakes are a huge change from the originals; smooth, solid and powerful stopping ability, couldn't be more pleased. The shop that did the installation of the product said that it's a great fit and finish, and was easy to install. Living in the mountains and towing a trailer as I do, it was a good decision to make the change. Thanks!
The rotors look great, but have not done any hard braking so I can't tell if I have any fading. They are quiet and have good stopping power. Added a nice look behind the rim and were a good fit/easy install. Will definitely purchase from this brand again. Installation went smoothly, and overall, I would recommend these rotors and brakes to any and all my friends.
