    Hi Royj Sir, I found an online seller with these brake pads "Roulunds RFI1 - 478981 Brake Disc Pad for Fiat Punto". I don't know what type it is nor the seller have any information. My punto-2009 needs Type-1 pads.
    Would be these Roulunds RFI1 are Type-1?

    I also found Brembo Ceramic Brake pads, will they go well with stock rotors?

    ^^ skoda octavia brake pads are direct fit for Type2 so can be checked once before installing and also ceradrive makes for type 2.
    I have used ceradrive for 4K kms(1150 cost) and it is good in performance,generates dust as OEM pads.
    Have tested for 60KMPH panic braking and it works good but OEM pads has good initial bite.

    Did anyone face warped disc rotors, by warp i mean irregular disc surface, reasons may be driving on worn out brake pads, or rotors warp due to excessive heat on long continous drives and frequent braking.
    Recently i heard weird humming noises from front brakes, i was on way back to chandigarh from Samba in jammu. It was Sunday eve so i continued driving at low speeds to Chandigarh and reached safely.
    Showed car to my local mechanic, and he suggested me to get disc gets flattened/Re-surface again at Lathe workshop, my question is , Is it safe to re-surface the brake discs as its uneven at few places ? its a cheap alternative just 200 rs for re-surfacing at lathe workshop.
    Any suggestions

    Measure the thickness of discs
    New disc thickness 22 mm
    Minimum thickness 20.2 mm
    If after resurfacing thickness would be above min value there would be no issues.

    Guys, Plan(Forced-Got rubbing noise in front left disc) to move front brake pads from second set to third set. After seeing this thread plan to go for aftermarket front disk pads (FCA cost:3500+Labor). Looked for Roulunds Pad but I am not sure Type II is avail or not, also I am in urgent, need the car this weekend.

    So, looked in Chennai and got Delphi LP2451IN in GP Road, My brother in law arranged it for 999(MRP 1345).

    Pack

    IMG_20170928_170111198.jpg

    2 Pads per pack

    Good information there, I understand there is minimum and maximum values mentioned on discs. I wonder if the same is mentioned on Fiat's Discs too? Do we know the OEM disc supplier/vendor name?

    Was it brake disc noise? Did it get solved, any chances it was wheel bearing noise?
