OEM for you, Quality as Standard

Pagid is the biggest selling brand in the UK and Ireland market, with over 28 product groups available. Pagid is an OE manufacturer and has been the brand of choice for automotive manufacturers. Owned byTMD Friction, the world’s leading brake friction manufacturer and exclusive to LKQ Euro Car Parts.

What does this warranty mean for you? Complete confidence in our products, knowing that once fitted correctly there will be no comeback from your customer. The stated warranty covers customers for 25/25 (months/miles) against manufacturer defects, but because we are confident in our product, it also covers “Wear and Tear” . None of our competitors offer this additional level of warranty.

Always at the forefront of OE technology advancements As the UK’s leading brake brand, Pagid has been the brand of choice for automotive partners for more than 50 years. Backed byTMD Friction OE approvals, in-house research and development, European manufacturing and proven braking performance.

Why Pagid • Available exclusively in the UK and Ireland through LKQ Euro Car Parts • Widest range in the UK aftermarket • Full range of pads, disc, shoes, drums, calipers • OE-approvals from some of the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers – including Audi, Aston Martin, BMW, VW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche (OE on BMW M4 / Porsche Panamera) • At the forefront of product and range development, including the latest EV/Hybrid models. (OE on Audi A4 E-Tron / Mercedes-Benz ECQ).

* Our braking warranty is no quibble. It does not include off road use (4x4 days, track days). It does not cover alterations of the manufacturers specifications.


Pagid carry out the same checks as many leading brands such as BMW, Ford, Toyota, etc. The Ultimate Transit Test Last year, we went up against two of our main competitors in a series of tests to measure the performance of our transit brake pads. The industry standard tests monitored performance across multiple characteristics. All possible scenarios were considered – different road types, speeds, temperatures and durations. On average, Pagid brake pads will last 3,000 miles longer than other leading UK brands.


Results Across the high mileage test, only a third of the brake pad was worn after the test – meaning quality products are guaranteed, and our extensive warranty provides peace of mind.

Making the most of the shortfall Since the pandemic, the MOT pattern has shifted. Pre 2020, the MOT curve consistently spiked in March and September to coincide with the release of new vehicles. While those months are still busier than others, the relatively flatter line that was pre 2020 has meant that there is a huge dip in MOTs after March. So much so that the wave of MOTs each September to November have meant that garages have become incredibly busy.

How have MOTs been affected?



Feast to famine? Looking at the graph, we can see the biggest dip is in April, which means it’s vitally important for garages to make the most of MOT business in March – as well as finding new ways to fill the gap that follows. The pattern should even itself out over the next few years, as more new vehicles come out of their warranty period and enter the independent aftermarket, in line with the new number plate release once more.

Look out for brake caliper work this March With the cold weather experienced over the last fewmonths, and salt being repeatedly put down on the road there is a potential increase in wear that can happen with calipers.

When your customers are in for the MOTs and services in March, why not keep an eye out for any potential brake caliper work?
