BUT my OE pads with came out are : - TOKICO EL799 FP63J0 JBSCO9A !!
The pads which went in are MGP 55810 M 63J00 !
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?


These pads ARE available for my swift VIA N1 at a decent price

EBC ultimax brake pads are supposed to be standard OE pads -abroad .
Standard OE+ not upgrades like EBC's red/green/blue stuff.

Any experiences with EBC ultimax brake pads? Anyone?
Anyone knows of any other swift brake pads ?

cheers & thank you people.

PS : soon put in new disc s & maybe rotors with the ultimax , if its all good and makes sense.
Really nice that the EBC's ULTIMAX are available for the swift !!
Any ides on : -
