Customer Question

2006 R350 my brakes squeak like crazy (all rotors and pads changed in the last six months, though not MB parts) is using MB parts the only way to stop brake squeak?

Hi, you can usually get away with using a good quality brake rotor such as Textar or Brembo but if you want to ensure against brake noise you need to install the Genuine Mercedes brake pad. Aftermarket brake pads will inevitably squeal. There are products on the market that you can use to treat the brake pads with to stop the squeal temporarily but it won't last.
Let me know if you need anything else.
