    Amaze!! no response by anyone. :eek:

    Anyways,, i have done brake pad and disc change on Sunday (21'Sep) and total cost was 7K including labor and taxes.

    I have peculiar things on Brake pad which seems to used more(left 3-4 mm) from outer part when compare to inner one (left 6-7 mm) and this seems to be manufacturing fault over here.

    Anyone can share their observation on the same.

    i think it needs to be compared with SWIFTS or BOLTS/ZEST BRAKE PAD to comment on the same.

    but seriously, one can use brake pad above 35000Kms based on the driving habits and condition around it. I have changed mine around the same.

    Dude ..I have used my Tjets breaks for 67K KMs.... Got the entire thing changed last weekend... even the FASS guys were shocked with the kind of mileage I got from the Discs and Pads.... they said we are used to change pads every 20K and Discs every 30-35K for Tjets.
    The technician said that I could have used them for another 5K KM and then changed them.... but I thought its wise to replace them before I mauled few while driving.

    Mine brake pad changed at around 35k and Disc(First time) at 63k.

    But, yes, it was regarding brakes and no one should take chance in replacing them at very first.

    @aashish_19 you have not posted pics of your rotors before the change. Usually it's possible to get them "skimmed" to even out the surface, at a workshop which has a lathe. The FASS themselves should be knowing such shops.
