Were these ceramics or semi metallic disc/ pads? I am told that they have semi metallic pads for cedia. I am not sure which one will be better for cedia.

They were the red pads which are semi metallic I guess.

Brembos are doing good. 8000KMs up and they're performing decently.

However I had an incident recently which made me rethink of having better brakes. I also faced a weird problem where the steering would vibrate when partial braking (20%) in the middle of a turn. No vibrations on braking full or on a straight line. I'll put in new caliper pistons and proper caliper grease tomorrow and see if it subsides, if not will replace with new carrier and calipers.

SS braided brake hoses and a new master cylinder change will happen in a month. Also thinking of getting Mintex brake pads and try them out.

Has someone sourced OEM quality fog lamps (basically the entire kit with wiring etc.)?

I have been looking out to buy fog lamps since my Select did not come with any.

You can try getting this. It has everything you need :

I replaced the spark plugs with new ones and its made a massive difference!

Old plugs, new one on the right. Electrodes have worn and gaps were close to 1.5mm instead of 1.1mm spec

There was an odd misfire once in a while, now that has gone. Car has become much peppier, pulls much cleaner to the rev limit. It's not placebo, confirmed by fellow cedia owner schakravarthy.

Few pictures on a recent photoshoot

I looked at the link. Will explore further.
Meanwhile got two 3ST tires as the old ones had started cracking. Need to drive regularly else the rubber becomes brittle.
While changing the tires I noticed one rubber part on the front shocker has come off.It's White, it's Sports and it's a Mitsubishi Cedia - 1.4 lakh km up & new S-drives!-img_20160830_134835.jpg

All rust removed on the rotor. I had painted part of the caliper red using a paintbrush through the alloys to see how a red caliper looked. I did not like it.

Only the best caliper grease for my car. Everything cleaned and ready for assembly. Rubber bush on the primary caliper pin had to be replaced since it had worn out.

Everything put together. The paint on the rotor will go away after braking couple of times, masking the rotor is a waste of time IMHO.

I finally manage to put in OZ Racing alloys! My car with schakravarthy's Cedia. Silver calipers are very visible and provide a nice contrast to grey OZ alloys.

I had a 150KMPH "incident" couple of months ago that left my left ORVM glass shattered and AC/PS Belt damaged. So ended up buying Gates Racing AC/PS Belt from USA.

The same day a very interesting parcel arrived all the way from New Zealand

It's White, it's Sports and it's a Mitsubishi Cedia - 1.4 lakh km up & new S-drives!-img_20160831_18224801.jpg

New mirrors, midrange speakers for the car, fuel lid spring and a roll of tesa tape arrived soon. Till now I was running a custom made mirror, felt good to have proper mirrors again. yay!

Added a check valve to the windshield washer fluid pipe. Some toyota part sourced from USA, hat tip to Gannu for the idea and part number! Now I get instantaneous water spray from nozzles!

One of these days while peeking under the car, noticed driveshaft boots on one side had torn. Went to my mechanic and got new ones put in.

Immediately got a pair of FRAM ultra synthetic oil filters from USA. One each for mine and schakravarthy's cedias. New set of front sway bar links in the red box since they were damaged on one side in my car.

Thanks to the package from NZ, I am not able to read and write into my ECU I'll be trying out minor changes for now, major tuning will start once I get a wideband and a spare ECU. Below are the stock fuel and ignition maps from my Cedia.

Do share the check valve part no. & source/link for ordering the same.

As for the oil filter, I have Santro filters installed on purpose(it's the exact same size, volume & standard quality but costs only 200+). While the oil used(Motul XCESS-8100) is of very high quality sadly the filters are not designed to keep up. I change the oil filter alone every 2500 to 3000 kms and top up the oil. In a 10-12K kms cycle, end up using an extra litre of oil and 3 to 4 filters but that's the least I can do to keep the 'Blue Streak' purring.

Last week while gentle braking at speeds around 80-100 noticed vibrations on the steering wheel.

Is this due to brakepads or due to the discs?

No issue noticed at normal speeds around 50-60 kmph.

It's the rotors. Mine had the same issue, but the steering used to wobble violently when braking at speeds above 120kmph. Even a gentle tap led to scary shakes.

A liter of 8100 XCess is Rs 1200, 4 filters will cost Rs 800 and labour costs for changing oil filters four times? Thats a lot isn't it? Not to mention the downtime when car is at the garge for the filter change.

My approach was to get the best filters and change them only once. The FRAM filter cost 10$ from USA. I have bought 4 liters of Motul 8100 X-Max for Rs 3375 after cashbacks, so my oil change would cost only around 4000rs with the best oil and best filters. Pretty economical isn't it?

I'm probably over reacting regarding the oil filter. The santro filter on my car has done 9000KMs since the last oil change; my cedia has been running 8100 XCess since 40K KMs. I wont be changing the filter till 13-14K when I'll change the oil+filter.

All 4 new rotors + pads. ROC had the same problem with my cedia and did the same to fix it. This problem doesnt go away with skimming the discs so only fix is changing rotors.
