    Got the roulunds brake pads installed this tuesday evening.

    It costed Rs 1246 (including Rs 150 shipping/handling) and installation was done at a local garage near my house for Rs 200.

    Have driven roughly 100 kms in the city so far with the new pads. haven't noticed much difference compared to Fiat OEM pads. Yet to hit the highways with these pads. Will update again after a highway drive.

    If we notice the last picture, name of the car is mentioned as 'pintoo' :)

    I have sent an email to the concerned person requesting to get it corrected.

    Off late i have been noticing that my punto does not start with one key turn. it often takes two-three turns to crank. this happens almost every alternate day. have a feeling that this has started happening after i changed the battery. it never used to happen with OEM exide except during last couple of months of its 3.5 yr life.

    Get battery checked and ask Amaron to replace, it should be in warranty.

    Also check whether the terminals are tightened properly.

    thanks sham :)!

    with roulunds pads i have done around 4k kms now..

    I feel that the bite is a bit less compared to the oem ones. have felt it both on highways and city. it hasn't bothered me though till date. just that oems are a class apart.

    Other than bite it makes sound sometimes..the garage guy who was fitting the pads had told me while seeing both the pads that this one will make sound due to its design
