The main benefits of using these over OEM hyundai are

1. Less brake dust - Hyundai OEM dust like crazy and spoil the looks of the alloys within a week of cleaning them. Also the dust is pretty stubborn and needs lots of agitation especially if there was water contact. Brembos dust approx 50% less than OEM and the dust is easy to wash away

2. Better bite when heated up. These being stintered brake pads, they bite better than OEM when heated up. Overall braking improvement over stock is around 25% which is a good improvement.

3.Longer life - OEM hyundai never lasted beyond 25K and these look like they will last beyond 30K easily

Pain points-

These started to make a squeaking sound after around 5K kms of usage. Cleaning of pads removed the sound for sometime but it came back. Small negative for larger positives
Hi Sagar,

Can you tell me where you sourced the brakes from, and did you just change the caliper or the rotor as well ?

Thanks,
Prateek

I purchased the rotors from one person in Goa. His name was Amit IIRC. Now all cities have their own distributors.

No, i have not changed the caliper or rotor.
