Bendix at standard level
Default Bendix VS OEM: Are OEM brake pads…better?


Are OEM serviceable parts better than aftermarket parts? When it comes to brake pads, it’s a clear, resounding, no. OEM brake pads are usually more expensive, exclusively sold by dealerships, but are outperformed by aftermarket brake pads, in every way.

Different Brake Pads for Different Driving Styles and Needs

OEM brake pads are good for all round usage. Designed to be quiet, effective on the road, and long lasting, it works well off the showroom floor.

However, aftermarket brake pads will stop even better, last longer, and in most cases, cost much less than OEM brake pads. Aftermarket brake pads also come in different formulations that will better suit your driving style and needs. For example, you may have a big sedan that does a lot of towing. Brake pads like the Bendix Heavy Duty can handle heavy loads and frequent stops, without losing braking performance or stopping power. Specially formulated to handle heat build-up generated from towing, the Bendix Heavy Duty brake pads would provide safer, better braking for a longer period of time, compared to the OEM brake pads.

Aftermarket brake pads also provide more features when compared to OEM brakes. For example, many of Bendix’s brake pads come with a Blue Titanium Stripe, which removes the need for bedding in. Just install and drive normally, for instant stopping power. Other features such as Bendix’s propriety Stealth Advance Technology reduces vibration and noise at the source. Specially designed shims and backing plates by Bendix also help increase brake efficiency and reduce noise.

Quality and Ease of Installation

Bendix brake pads are also designed to be easily installed, with the right backing plates and auxiliary parts. For modern European cars, electronic brake sensors are also included, where applicable to ensure fuss free installation.

Bendix brake pads are tested to SAE and ISO standards, and these international tests define the highest standards of braking performance.

With proven quality and OE fitment, Bendix brake pads easily qualifies for OE logbook servicing, so you won’t void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Widely Available, Biggest Range

Older, rare or imported cars may have problems finding spares or parts. Not brake pads though, as Bendix has over 2500 applications for cars, trucks, vans or utes. With the widest range of brake pads in Australia and New
Zealand, there’s no longer any need to order or wait for brakes to fit your car.
