Hey buddy as for the brakes, find out at 4 seasons. They will check out, why there isnt enough braking in your car. In my opinion, replace the liners & pads & get the discs polished. Nothing more you could do.
Or are you thinking of putting discs at the rear too!
If so,find out with the garage.

All the best!

hello autozealot bro.. i have just replaced my pads and liners replace from vitesse.. they wernt worn out that much either but i thought i would get better braking performance with new parts so i did.. but i havent felt a marked difference.. which just means that my old brakes were still fine.. old pads were about 7,000 Km old . i did go ahead and replace them anyway hoping for better performance but the difference isnt noticeable... now i wanna know if there are better discs and calipers available here for the esteem. and if anyone have upgraded their brakes. thanx again bro for the suggestions..
boom shiva

Pictures of my modded esteem can be found in my Team-BHP Garage link to which is http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vbpicg...?do=view&g=239

BTW, it the same car that is seen in front of Pyscho's car in the picture posted by McLaren. This picture was taken in one of the Team-bhp drives.

Reallly Nice Exhaust Note buddy...Few Questions for you..
1)Is it a Custom Made Endcan or Automech exhaust ?
2)Is the same Exhaust Note possible from Zen Engine?
3)If yes,What will be the total Expense for this kinda exhaust for a Zen.

Thanks bro,

Regarding the exhaust thingy, credit goes to Nikibusa(Forum Member).

I am running a straight pipe and a local made Endcan and the CAT is removed.

@bugatti_86: Dude, i got the end can for him from Smokeage. They are located in Worli and i have got few cars done from him. Since Yogi needed the car to be loud, we opted for the straight pipe setup.

I really cant gaurantee you about the zen'z exhaust sounding the same, but might be able to deliver you a better exhaust. The cost involved should be around Rs:3500/-.

Thanks,
Niki.
