*HOW TO SPOT A FAKE BREMBO BRAKE KIT*
Counterfeiting is a serious crime, even if it seems that it is not worth paying a premium for the genuine product. The worst part about this industry is that consumers might be tricked into buying a fake item while believing it is the genuine article.
When it comes to the automotive industry, fake parts are even more dangerous, because the customer has no guarantee that the item they buy will be on par with the original.
It canâ€™t be just as good as the real thing, and this can turn into a disaster even for minor components. When elements of the braking systems are concerned, buying a fake product could lead to death, and others might lose their lives because of this.
Are you willing to risk your life and the lives of anyone around at a given time just for saving a few bucks? Fake rims, or replica rims, come with the same risk. With braking components, the counterfeit parts are bound to fail, and when this happens, things go wrong in more ways than one can imagine.
To fight against counterfeits, we have devised various safety elements. However, people still get tricked into buying fake parts and paying more for a knock-off while thinking they bought a legit component. Brembo has published a guide to spotting fake braking components, which we will detail below.
â€˘ How much does it cost?
Counterfeit products sell because they have a lower price than the original. That is the only way that the company that makes them can earn huge profits. Unfortunately, the knock-offs never match the original product concerning quality and performance so that the buyer will end up with a dud.
This might not be a problem when buying a pair of flip-flops to wear in your house, but it can mean the difference between life and death on the road when it comes to braking components. Brembo advises customers to keep an eye out for amazing discounts.
The Italian company suggests inquiring the salesperson about why the product is being sold at such a low price when compared to other vendors. Pay attention to what the seller says â€” it is usually a lie.
Remember that promotional offers in this field will never bring massive discounts, especially when compared to other vendors.
â€˘ Is it available in the parts catalog?
Brembo makes a product catalog each year, to showcase its wide range of components. Almost every major manufacturer does this, so this applies to nearly all the prominent brands that sell car parts. Consult the catalog before any purchase to find the product that best suits your needs.
When looking for a braking component for your car that is supposedly made by Brembo, check the brandâ€™s catalog to see if such a part exists. As the Italian company notes, not all vehicle brands are covered by its range, so it is normal not to find an upgrade for just about any vehicle on the market. Everything that Brembo produces is in the catalog, without exception, Brembo notes.
In the case of OE components, meaning parts with manufacturer specifications, your model of car, truck, or motorcycle should be covered by the catalog. If you find a part that is said to be made by Brembo, but not listed on the offer at all, it is fake. Check the catalog before your buy.
â€˘ Is the package complete?
Counterfeit parts often enter the market in incomplete packaging. In the case of fake Brembo parts, the Italian supplier notes that it has noticed that most counterfeit parts come in the form of calipers alone, instead of a complete kit.
At this point, Brembo observes that it does not sell and has never sold car calipers separate from any other package elements. If someone attempts to sell you a set of Brembo car calipers alone, you are dealing with a fake.
Brembo never sells these parts alone because they have been designed to work with other components, which must also be replaced when the calipers are installed.
Some counterfeiters sell old original Brembo parts that have been repainted or somehow refurbished. Do not buy them and go for new parts instead. Most importantly, you should never get second-hand brakes for your vehicle.
An original braking kit from Brembo should include comprising discs, calipers, adapter clamps, and pads. Do not fit a kit that has not been designed for your vehicle, even if it is an original Brembo package for another car, as it could not match technical specifications and cause a crash.
â€˘ Does it have the anti-counterfeiting card?
At this point, imagine you have the package supposedly containing Brembo parts inside. Check it with caution and search for the â€śAnti-Counterfeiting Cardâ€ť Brembo places each of these cards within the instructions for the range of Brembo High-Performance Components, and the card is placed inside a sealed wallet.
Customers must scratch (a coin is recommended) the silver strip on the back of the card to reveal a six-digit code. Once found, the code must be verified on www.original.brembo.com to confirm its pedigree.
The confirmation can be done right at the point of sale. Each cipher is supposed to be unique, so counterfeiters have no shot of buying one product and using the same key over and over.
If the product lacks the card, you might have a counterfeit on your hands. The same goes if the code entered is not validated by the Brembo website. Since you have followed the steps described above, you should be able to get your money back.

Finally launched at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. What do you guys think?
Much more updated look than the current generation, and i like how the Swift Sport looks a little bit more aggresive.
First picture is the Swift Sport.
