The optional M Carbon Ceramic Brake System implements braking power more directly. It doesn't corrode, tolerates more heat, features strongly reduced abrasion and contributes to lower vehicle weight, which has a positive impact on agility, dynamics and acceleration. Brake callipers in Gold Metallic with the M logo make this special technical equipment visible from the outside of the car.
Through the use of various materials, M compound brakes achieve outstanding deceleration values and high stability as well as a long lifespan. They also weigh less, which has a positive impact on agility, dynamics and acceleration. The brake callipers in blue metallic with the M logo are the hallmark of high-performance compound brakes.
Dependent on conditions and usage, features specific to the materials used can lead to operational noises particularly in wet conditions just before the vehicle comes to a halt. The impact of moisture and road salt can cause the braking action to be equivalent to a conventional brake system. This can for a short time be experienced as a reduction in braking action and can be balanced out by greater pressure on the pedal where necessary.
