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.

Default Brembo Brakes in India

Landroverlab has opened a new Brembo exclusive store, and as per the owner, they will be soon stocking the entire range. As of now, only Merc, Audi and BMW specific brake pads are available.

I am not sure about the origin of the Brembo products(Indian made/Imported)

Click to Open

Note- No way am I related to Landroverlab, either commercially or personally. I am simply a customer, who sometimes purchases stuff from them.

Regards,
Shashi

Very much possible. I would stay clear of low prices. Pay premium for peace of mind especially when it comes to brakes.

May I know which Place in Official website GOA distributors name is listed?

First of all Brembo has 2 official website.

Brembo.com which is their general website
bremboparts.com which is their aftermaket website for OE replacement brake pad catalogue.

Brembo has 4 divisions in Total
Brembo High performance Division for Cars
OE Division for Cars
High performance Division for bikes
OE Division for Bikes

All Divisions have separate Department Independent of one and other and separate Distibutors.

in Bremboparts.com which is site for after market brake pads, to find local dealer near you or any country there is a form to be filled and then Brembo would Contact you and let you know your closest dealer.

The Brembo High performance Division has Big brake kits and HP 2000 pads which are too costly and not a single kit has been fitted in India till date.

There are only 2 official importers in India. Please mind your facts when telling Goa fellow is the only one and his name is listed on any site and others selling Fake.

Just because your are charged lower price doesn't mean product is fake. it can also mean you were exploited before by being charged higher price.

Surprised to see negative feedback about Chennai distributor of Brembo brake pads. This forum should not be used for rumour mongering based on hear say. Its one of the most reputed platform and providing unbiased feedback by genuine users should be appreciated, as it has been always!

I have personally interacted with the owner of the Chennai distributor of Brembo brake pads and have ordered and installed on my Duster 110 and got it for others in our Team Duster India group. All of us (about 20+ owner's) are pretty happy with the product and professional attitude of Mr.Aashish of United Motors,Chennai.
Many from our group are slowly replacing the stock Brake pads and Rotor's with the ones from Brembo via United Motors of Chennai.

PS: I don't have any commercial interest in United Motors, but wanted to share unbiased review.

Ok, so I bite. Although I've been happy with the 'bite' of the Bosch brake system (rotors/pads/ABS/calipers) which is OE in my car I sent an enquiry about Brembo disc pads (and rotors) and the presence of a dealer in Pune. Let me see what they say.

I didnt say who is genuine or not. I asked a question for clarifying a doubt when I got reports about the fakes from couple of members in a group. We were interacting with the Brembo distributor with forum specific discount codes too and many have used that channel.

This question cameup when one of our member was asking for changing the pads and I myself directed them to the Chennai distributor for getting the forum discount, couple of members presented with these info & couple of cases with some accident cases. So I checked the brembo.com and I could find only one name under the distributor for India. So I posted it here before redirecting a member to get more clarification. Thats why I didnt name any. Moreover we never had any issue with Chennai distributor and was getting the lowest price in the market. I am not sure who is illios, if you can clarify things that would be the answer for my question rather ranting on something which I havent thought about.

Rest of the other member's comments , I see as cheap and dirty politics.

Rotor discs are measured with vernier calipers for thickness. If they are below the minimum recommended thickness (specified in the service manual) then you need to have them replaced.
