Illustration for article titled Are Brembo brakes actually worth it? Or are you paying for the name?

My C30 doesn’t need brakes yet. They were new when I got the car about a year ago so I wasn’t even thinking about upgrading. But then, K-Pax comes out and does a half price sale on all brake rotors! These rotors are slotted and are actually brembos, just without the name. Being half price means I can get all four corners for under $400. That makes them less than Volvo OEM. But, will I see any difference? Yes, I will upgrade the pads too. Just curious if I’ll feel a difference, especially since the brakes aren’t great now.
