Engine braking? U mean controlling the engine by shifting down the gears at the same time as u apply for the brakes?

Hi Dr. Chill,
I understand the price difference between the break pads are because the former ones were from Japan and the latter ones are from India. Now my Baleno is equipped with the Japanese brakes and touchwood, they perform like a miracle even after 26.5K on the Odo. I was just wondering if the Indian ones are as good? Did you have the Japanese pads fitted in before? Are the Indian ones as good?

The Japs manufactured ones will be always good and expensive compared to Indian ones. I think its worth buying good ones if it lasts longer and performs great. isn't it?
anyways, thanks for all the feedbacks and inputs on this issue. I really appreciate it. *thanks*

Actually the MRP in the packet was Rs4ooo something but after i enquired about the price drop in the spare parts .they cross checked and gave me those ones at Rs900.so i got the imported ones for the local price ...since my car is a 2000 model i guess it came with the japanese ones from day one.
