Thats what it says on the box at least didnt actually study the new pads was too rushed. The new pads were packed on 11/07. All pic's soon.

Does this mean that the swift came with nice Japanese PADS and now they are on cruddy Indian MGP???

Do different MGP pads/discs exist ? OR all india one MGP brake pad/brake disc manufacturer?
I think you get SGP brake pads, but they are difficult to find. All dealers will stock mostly MGP. And they are not as good as SGP.

If you are going for EBC pads, atleast try Greenstuff instead of Ultimax which is only OEM replacement. How much are the pads quoted for?

The EBC ultimax definitely severely helped an OHC Automatic's [ car i hate ] braking , test drove it yesterday.

Myself going ultimax ASAP.
Pictures of my old pads up later today [ if anyone's interested ]

I know it is a very old thread (the problem with braking in Esteem is old too ). Can you please let me know the part number for EBC Green Stuff brake pads and Discs for Esteem. I am planning to replace the pads as well as the discs (preferablly grooved discs). I am planning to get them imported. Thanks

Hello Mates,
