Would the Z23 Evolution Sport kit work for a European car?

The short answer is yes. Say you’ve got a BMW and you’re sick of your wheels being constantly covered in dust from brakes meeting OE specifications, then you could surely upgrade to our Z23 line and prevent that. Since PowerStop’s Z23 kits are a higher-performance brake kit all around for anything you drive, you can’t go wrong there.

Europe’s laws require that braking components be tested to meet the same standards as original equipment. North America, however, doesn’t have the same regulations for brake parts. Because of that, brakes are not required to meet those OE specifications, so ultimately the choice is yours. We’ve made it easier to have the option of meeting ECE-R90 requirements if you choose to with our Euro-Stop kit.
