    Yeah shams you are right ,if those brake pads are aftermarket the scenario is different :D
    Below pic of my 43K Kms run brake pads at 43K Kms aslo the braking was as effective as the new aftermarket pads(Here GEMCO)

    i think there was another 1000Kms left in that brake pads.

    Bharath, check if you have type 1 or type 2 calipers before your order.

    Please excuse me if this has been explained earlier. What is type 1 and type 2 pads?
    What are the model years for these? I have a Jan 2012 Punto emotion thats done around 11K KMS but I haven't changed the pads during the second service.

    If anyone can help me identifying pads for my car, I'd order them from 99rpm along with other things I've planned.

    Much appreciated!!

    You can safely go to 3mm thickness, I suggested 5mm as brake wear is not identical on all four front brake pads. Its better to change pads a little early than a little late. Type 1 pads have thickness of approx 18mm when new.

    Hi Vijay,

    I guess you have used ROULUNDS brake pads, can you please share your overall feedback about these and did you buy it from 99rpm.com? I was also planning to get these fitted into my Linea and I hope the one's available on 99rpm.com (mentioned as butterfly shaped) will fit into my Linea which is MJD (2010 manufactured), please correct me, if i am wrong.

    Have shared feedback earlier in this thread few post backs and no I did not bought them from 99rpm.com, I bought them from Motor Market of Manimajra Chandigarh.
    I can't say which pad your car will have Type 1 or Type 2 without seeing brake calipers or old pads as new pads came into extisence in mid 2010 only. If you can post a photo of front brakes with wheel removed(not needed if you have alloys and caliper is visible) I can tell which type is it.

    The pads costed me approx 3200/- and they lasted for approximately 34000 kms. I think they have the teeth to bite for some more kms. What do u guys feel?

    Its good to see that OEM brake pads lasted for 34K kms :up . I think you can replace them now.

    Yeah thank you buddy. That's because i do a lot of engine braking and less of sudden brake.

    Yup, they have atleast 3K kms of life left from what i see. Given your's lasted 34K, you could have squeezed out more than 3K technically.
