Robert Bosch LLC has announced the addition of 17 new part numbers to its brake pads and rotating machines product lines in September.
Bosch QuietCast and Bosch Blue Brake Pads
This month, Bosch has added four new brake pad sets to its braking components portfolio – one to its QuietCast Brake Pad line and three SKUs to the Bosch Blue Brake Pad line – with hardware kits included for select applications.
Overall, the new part number releases extend Bosch coverage to an additional 368,000 late-model Mercedes-Benz units in operation. The new QuietCast Brake Pad part number comes with a hardware kit and covers applications including 2006-’09 Mercedes-Benz E350, 2007-’09 Mercedes-Benz GL320, 2010-’12 Mercedes Benz GL350, 2010-’11 Mercedes Benz ML450 and more.
All Bosch premium QuietCast brake pads feature friction formulas specific to the application – semi-metallic, NAO or copper-free ceramic – and include synthetic lubricant in each package.
The three additions to the Bosch Blue Brake Pad line add coverage for 119,000 units in operation. Two of these SKUs include a hardware kit and fit applications that include: 2007-’13 Mercedes-Benz CL550; 2012-’13 Mercedes-Benz S350; 2012-’13 Mercedes-Benz CL600; 2005-’09 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG; and 2005-’10 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG Performance.
Specially designed to deliver quality and performance to the “everyday driver,” Bosch Blue Brake Pads come towel-wrapped for select applications providing added protection and value. The material used is similar to the shop towels that technicians use on a daily basis while working on their customers’ cars.
