Are my brakes Teves or Brembo ?

2009 330D LCI - standard rear brakes

Im looking at Europarts for replacement pads for my rear brakes. There are 2 types listed for my car; Teves and Brembo for both Pagid and Textar pads.

Am I correct in assuming that my brakes are Teves calipers and not Brembo ones ?

I know Brembo are known for their high performance brakes but it occurred to me that they may also make stanadard OEM stuff too. So thought Id better check.

Shouldn't matter. Whoever they're made by, they should be the same shape and size. The only difference could be pre/post LCI.

I've always gone with Pagid. As far as I know, they make the OEM pads anyway. At least they did in the E46 days

The OEM pads on my 2009 E90 325d were Jurid. I replaced with Textar from Eurocarparts and the performance was the same.

It does matter because according to Eurocarparts the E91 comes with either Teves or Brembo calipers and offer the Pagid and Textar pads for the Brembo caliper at a much higher price than their pads for the Teves caliper.

However I think I must have Teves caliper and that the Brembo caliper is actually the BMW performance upgrade.
