As far as I know calipers are different on 2006 and 2008, so I would say no.

I have a 2007 QP Sport GT.

Confusions abound on what pads fit.

According to the FD website, 2004-2007 QPs have different rears to 2007-current QPs (2 piston vs 4 piston rears). So it is not clear then, that for 2007 models, which rears should be used. Is it related to the transmission (ZF or F1) at all?

According to the first post of the site, ML350/400/55AMG are interchangeable for the rear. Cross referencing the Bendix website, those models of Mercs have different factory pads depending on the brakes used at the time by the manufacturer - yes, within the same model years, go figure. The Bendix model that is common to all three for those listed years seem to be DB1461. To those who have a 4.2L QPV, who have found that their ML350/400/55AMG pads didn't fit, can you please list the manufacturer and part number please? You may have bought pads for those models that aren't common to all three. But I don't know this for certain.

According to the first post of the site, Nissan Skyline R33 GTRs and Ferrari Maranello fronts are interchangeable with our 4.2L QPV. According to the Bendix website, there are two part numbers for the Skyline R33 GTRs of that period (depending on whether its Japanese domestic or export models) and yet a separate part number for the Maranello. So again, if anyone had success with replacing the front pads, please state the exact part number used.

So, basically, all the models listed as interchangeable have more than one part number, i.e, more than one design of brake pads.

If you have successfully interchanged a pad from another manufacturer, can you please list the exact model number of the pads used?

I am in need of new pads, so this would help a lot, and obviously for others in posterity. Thanks.

I recently found pads for front and rear 2009 QP base at Autozone: mkd639 front and mkd1053 rear. But I had to remove the existing pads and trace the shapes and match them to be sure.

This thread has been around for quite awhile now, but it so far hasn't addressed a few items that I would like to know, as my '09 Base approaches this need:

1) Other than the Bosch pads identified by oresto, does anyone know of other brands that retain the pad wear sensor like the stock pads have? And oresto, have you located a source for the companion FRONT Bosch pads? Your original source doesn't appear to carry them.

2) Turning away from "street" pads to performance pads, does anyone know if there are any brands of higher-performance pads that retain the pad wear sensor?

3) For those of you that have chosen to forego the pad wear sensor when mounting your performance pads, how have you or your tech dealt with the sensor connector on the wiring harness end? Would the absence of a connection turn on an indicator light at the dash?

4) Is there any other hardware that comes off with the stock pads that have to be re-mounted along with the new performance pads?

Thank you,
ktbd

We offer both factory pads as well as performance and quiet pads (which are actually priced better than factory parts) for all QP models. Feel free to have a look on our website for more information, they are fairly priced, fit up well and will not set off the brake indicator but instead use built in pad wear sensors. The factory pads are known to wear below spec and not set off the wear light on the QP so having a manual wear sensor is not a bad way to go. Of course, we provide support for our pads if you have any questions or need any help!

Best Regards,

Try mkd639 from autozone but I believe those don't have the wear sensor. You can probably cut the notch where the sensor goes.. I don't have a light for my wear sensor. The connector just sits there behind the hub. If you want to go with a better pad try ebc dp31909

I'm thinking to replace the stock rotors and brake pads of my base QP 2008 Automatica with these ones. Current braking feeling is too soft for 2+ tons weight.

The current prices seems too competitive with the discount.

Does anyone have any experience?

I investigated these with the vendor for my 2009 QP Base. You will need to provide the vendor with your VIN so they can see if the products will fit your calipers. They didn't for mine. If they do for you, that's a gonga deal.

If you want to try an incremental approach, if the existing rotors and pads look like they have some good life left, then stainless steel braided brake hoses and fresh high-temp brake fluid would be a relatively inexpensive start. You haven't lost anything if that doesn't provide as hard a brake pedal as you wish. FD has also given you good advice.

Thank you both. Although I'm a customer of FD, they do have excellent products, I'm a bit hesitated for No-name products from unknown manufacturer.
The reason is that we're talking one of the most critical/sensitive part of any car: brakes!
I'm sure that all companies provide warranty for their products, no doubts about it.
BUT if something goes really wrong (and you survive) and it can be proved the fault was from braking system, from whom you'll ask for responsibilities?
It is well known that factory will deny any responsibility for non OEM parts.




P.S. I know that FD have also Brembo's excellent rotors and pads but $10,000 expense for brakes for a car worth of $20000 is at least ridiculous...

I'll give them the requisite 1,000 miles of break in but if they don't quiet down by then, in the bin they go.
Any update on that?
