Built for the ‘everyday’ driver, Bosch Blue Brake Pads are designed to deliver quality, performance and value.

Bosch has introduced five new part numbers for its premium line of QuietCast Brake Pads, including one new copper-free set for 2006 BMW 525i, 2008 BMW 528i, BMW 528xi and 2004-’07 BMW 530i.
