Optional Extras: Endless SS-M Street Brake Pads for BMW X5 M further improve performance with very low dust/noise output

Supplied & Fitted by V-Sport’s Sydney Workshop

To improve all-round stopping performance and address brake squeal issues, we’re replacing the factory brakes on this customer’s BMW X5-M with a Brembo GT high-performance brake system. Along with a significant upgrade in braking power and reduction in unsprung weight, Brembo GT calipers suit a broader range of pad options to suit applications from daily use to spirited driving and light track use.

For this customer, we’ll use the complete Brembo GT Upgrade, with upgraded brake pads in an SS-M compound by Endless.

Compare the new Brembo GT brake system with the factory-installed M-Series brakes. Although the Brembo System uses a significantly larger, thicker front disc, it offers approximately 4.1kg in weight reduction per corner, weighing in at 21.25kg over the factory system’s 25.35kg.

To determine this difference, we weighed the Caliper, Disc, Caliper Mounting Bracket & Pads from the factory and Brembo GT systems.

On the vehicle, the Brembo GT system stands out with signature Red Brembo Calipers under the factory wheels, which are sure to stay cleaner for longer with our upgraded Endless SS-M brake pads.

Endless’ SS-M is a street compound that offers extremely low dust and noise output, with noticeable stopping improvement over OE pads – an improvement that is amplified with the new Brembo Calipers.
