I have an 06 QP, and in the next year or so I am going to have to replace the pads and rotors. But there is no way in hell I will be paying dealer prices for stock pads and rotors. The front pads for the qp have already been cross referenced with the following cars:

My Question is this. What other cars ROTORS will fit on our M139 Quattroporte??


If no one knows of any interchangeable part for the M139 QP than would someone be willing to take measurements of a brand new stock Front and Rear rotor from Masearti so we can find a matching part based on dimensions that would work for our cars??? The link to Brembo's vehicle application site is here.

Any other info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

We're working on a replacement rotor for the QP as well as a big brake kit in the future. As of now, I'm not aware of anyone who's producing any replacements. We do also sell the OEM rotors at a bit of a discount as well. If you're interested, give a call.

Best Regards,

If you have been using the oem pads then the rotors tend to hold up reasonably well. If this is your first pad replacement on your QP you can likely stretch the rotors out. You may have to deal with some squeal for a while while the new pads bed in but at least it will bide you time until Jeff gets his rotors done!

Confirmed 850CI front brake pads work with 08 QP Sport GT. :thumbsup:

However non of the MB ML class rears work for the rear. :thumbsdown:
Actually it is confirmed that the ML Pads will work as well too. I have purchased replaced the front and rear pads of my car with the above reference vehicles and it works great.

My question is has anyone ever tried the lifetime brake pads from Autozone / Pep Boys / Advance Auto? Supposedly you can just buy a set and exchange them for free everytime they wear out.

I had a pickup that went 300k miles and only paid for one set of brake pads. :) AutoZone hated to see me coming I bet everytime I needed brakes, but they always handed me a new set. Keep the receipt in the glove box and you are set.

I put O'Reilly lifetime metallic pads on my QP. They work and stop great, and cost just $50 per axle. The rears fit perfectly. The fronts, part # MKD639 were actually just a bit to long in the backing plate to fit the caliper, probably a result of less that stellar QC. I had to file the plate down just a touch on each end to move freely in the caliper then refinish the filed edges so as to inhibit rust. But have put some mile on them and all is good.

Do you have part numbers? Will this work for an '08 Exec GT or just the Sport GT?

The rear brakes pads are the same on all of the QP's 07+ and the GT's as well. The 05-06 QP's used a smaller pad.

This goes for the front as well, all QP's and GT's use the same front pad except in cases of the QP Sport GT-S and any new 4.7 QP or GT with the 6 piston front calipers.

FWIW, we do have Brake Rotors and Pads in stock for all Maserati models, prices are very good compared to the factory dealers. Our rotors and pads are quality parts proven to be quiet on these models which has typically been a big problem, especially on the QP / GT models.

OK so this is what I know...

1. The fronts listed above (BMW 850 Ci, etc) will work on my '08 Sport GT.

2. The rears listed above (MB ML class) DO NOT FIT my '08 Sport GT.

3. I have confirmed and installed the rears of '10 Chevy Camaro 6.2V8 / Dodge Magnum / etc. I believe either the Sport GT's have a bigger rear calipers or '07/'08's have bigger rears.

So if any of you guys want a set of rear brakes, I have a generic set for the MB ML set ($40) and I have a Ferodo specifically for the Maserati rears $80 (non Sport GT). I bought the Ferodo Maserati pads thinking it would fit, but was actually the same size as the MB ML's. PM me if any of you want these.

Everyone is talking about break pads but no one is talking about rotors. I gave confirmed that front pads are interchangeable with BMW 850, does anyone know if front rotors are interchangeable with 850 as well or some other car? Please let me know.

Thank you

I just replaced both my pads with EBC reds and turned the rotors at my shop. The EBC pad kits do not include the metel anti squeal back plates so be sure you reuse the factory ones elze you will do the job twice.

I just put EBC Redstuff pads on the rear of my QP and they had the metal shims attached to them however they squeal like a banshee!

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.

barely used set of brakes/rotors

I'm not trying to hijack the thread here with "for sale" items, but since the original question was about the high cost...
I bought a full set (front/back) of the cross-drilled rotors and quiet Kevlar pads from FD last month for my 2007 Sport GT Automatic QP. The car was rear-ended 2 weeks ago by a texting teenager and has since been declared totalled. I spent $1800 on this set of brakes and rotors and used them for less than 400 miles. I was planning on removing them from the car prior to the salvage guys taking the car in the hope of using them on a future Maserati (if I can take the plunge again). If anyone here is interested in this set, make an offer and I'll seriously consider it. I'm probably going to have to pay about $250 to get the brakes off and an old set back on, since the car needs to be in equivalent condition as it is now, so take that cost into account - i.e. don't offer $200 for the set.

Rotors are NOT interchangeable with a 850/840i
Brake pads do interchange.
