The original Lucas 326x26 mm brakes suffer from overheating and 'warped' rotors are also a frequent problem.

By using a different pad compound with higher thermal capabilities, this problem can be addressed.
Unfortunately no aftermarket brake pad supplier has listed alternative brake pads for the Alpina B8, but EBC offers custom made brake pads with different compunds. These can be ordered directly from EBC.
