If you are looking for a new brake pad for your car, you have come to the right place. Here at Black Diamond, we stock a wide range of brake pads. Our extensive collection of brake pads can accommodate practically any make and model of vehicle available on the roads today - from popular everyday makes such as BMW, Nissan and Audi, to more niche sports automotive brands like Caterham, AC and Dodge. So whether it's standard pads or predator pads that you are after, have a browse of our online store to find the right product for your exact vehicle.
Brake pads are an essential part of any vehicle's braking system and, without them, your car would not be able to halt or slow down effectively - meaning it would not be roadworthy. Brake pads that are wearing down will impact the performance of your vehicle, and you will likely be able to feel when they start to become less effective. They work when the brakes of your car are applied; the caliper squeezes the two pads on each wheel together against the spinning rotor. This slows or stops the motion of the wheel. If you feel your vehicle is not responding well to braking, it could be time to change your pads.
At Black Diamond, all of our brake pads are of the highest possible standard. Each pad has been made to meet the manufacturers' requirements to provide you with the highest performance and safest drive possible. We have access to an unrivalled selection of brake pads and other vehicle safety accessories and parts, meaning that we are able to offer you prices that are among the most competitive on the market. Many of our items are also offered at a discounted sale price, meaning even further savings for our customers.

Autobianchi was an Italian vehicle producer built in 1955 by Bianchi, Fiat and Pirelli. Autobianchi made only a few models during its lifetime, most of which were small in size, with the largest being the Autobianchi A111. Autobianchis were more expensive than the equivalent Fiat models and the brand was used by Fiat to test inventive new concepts which later became commonplace in all Fiat vehicles.
Autobianchi was eventually taken on by the Fiat group and came under Lancia’s umbrella. The marque carried on in Italy until the Y10's production ended in 1995, but then ceased to exist when the model was rebranded in 1989 as a Lancia.
The first car to roll off the production line was the Bianchina, which was modelled on the Fiat 500 thanks to its two-cylinder, rear mounted air-cooled engine at the back. Loaded with premium technology and design features, the Bianchina was a highly sought-after city car marketed as a “second car” to the middle classes. It was positioned in the market above the Fiat 500.
At the 1963 Turin Motor Show, five years after the release of the Bianchina, the Autobianchi Stellina was showcased. It was Italy’s first two-door spider based on the Fiat 600D's chassis with a lightweight fibreglass body. It was only manufactured for two years between 1964 and 1965 with only 502 ever being made.
The following year then saw the launch of the Autobianchi Primula. It was Fiat's initial go at a vehicle with front-wheel drive and a transverse engine, a configuration made popular by the British Mini. The gearbox was also located on the end of the engine rather than on the sump. The 1970s then saw the successful unveiling of the brand’s last two premium models; the A111 and the A112.
With Autobianchi being a less well-known brand which is no longer in existence, finding spare parts is likely to be a challenge to say the least.
Here at Performance Car Parts we sell a massive variety of Autobianchi parts and accessories all in one place. Speak to us today to order the perfect great value part you need.
