If you have the JCW Brake Upgrade on your Gen 1 MINI, this is a great 'maintenance kit' to refresh your brakes. Kit includes factory replacement JCW rotors and EBC Green Pads.
Fits the following models WITH the JCW Front Brakes upgrade (Red Front Calipers):
2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S Hatchback
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertibles
Select Production Date:
Kit consists of:
[ ] JCW Front Rotors Solid/Vented - pair
[ ] Standard Rear Rotors Solid - Pair
[ ] EBC Green Performance Brake Pads - Front and Rear Set
For this kit with the EBC Red Pads, see NMK3234. The new EBC Greenstuff material reduces pad to disc operating temperature by up to 200 degrees while offering high initial 'bite' and are effective up to 800 degrees F. Features factory style spring clips for accurate and quiet operation. Suitable for all fast road applications, Green Stuff pads are manufactured from a high performance brake material with aramid fibres that will deliver excellent braking efficiency (0.48) and durability.
This high performance roadsport material still includes the attributes necessary for safe and effective road braking in intermittent traffic conditions whilst ready to deliver in depth braking power when called upon.
Follow manufacturers bed-in procedure for proper operation.
These pads are slotted for the factory brake sensor.
Features and Benefits of Greenstuff : " upgrades brake performance by 30-50%, friction co-efficient of 0.48µ " " excellent initial bite resulting in instant response - no warm-up required " " class-leading fade resistance on the road - heat stable to a blistering 500ºC " " extremely low disc abrasion - due to high aramid content " " low dust formula, great for alloys - due to zero carbon content " " low vibration - smooth operation "
Some BRAKE DUST is inevitable from every brake pad and it is impossible to totally eliminate dust otherwise brake vibration will occur. We never advertise ZERO DUST we only advertise LESS DUST and we appreciate that in some cases dust will be almost the same as original pads. However, please note that dust is always more severe in the first 1000 miles of driving especially if pads were fitted to partly worn rotors. Another condition which promotes significant dust is wrong pad compound choice. If you have a car with over 200bhp (horse power) or drive above what we might call a spirited street level, for example green pads would not be suitable and red ceramic, being a slightly harder pad, can handle these higher speeds and loads and gives off less dust … there may be cases of overload where the Green pads are carbonising in use and a higher spec pad (Red Ceramic) is needed. Yellow compounds are a fantastic brake, probably our best but they are equal in dust to Original parts and should not be chosen if a low dust pad is what you need. Our CLEANEST pads are RED CERAMIC for sedans.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years, more often if you track your Mini.
