    Are the new type brake pads available in Mageneti Merelli? Is yes, how much does it cost and where do I get one in Bangalore.

    ^^ Krishna, I was discussing about Mageneti Merelli with Sham (theblack) during Vecto meet. He sourced it from a auto accessory shop in JC Road. I belive cost is @Rs. 2500-2700. Need to check whether his Punto uses the old design or the new one
  3. Can you post the details of the shop if possible

    The place is called 'JK automobiles' .
    My car has the older design of brake pads and it costed me 2100 + tax .

    PS : Since the change I think I've done more than 12000 and i think i can still do another 20-25 .
    Surprising my driving habits haven't changed that much . MM is fairly thicker than GALFER so just by size it's going to give me more kms to run.
    The bite is just as good as GALFER as well.

    For my next pad change i'm looking at tarox or roulands unless they are not ridiculously expensive.

    ^^ Get it checked in your next servicing, members have used brake pads for more than 30K KM.
    My current pads already completed 25K+ KM.

    Whether frequent usage of hand brakes (in signals) will reduce the life of break pads !!!!
