    32K with OEM and another 10K then it's great news jayadev :)

    Though FASS has suggested for more 10K ams, just check the break pads in 5K km interval from now.

    OT : ATE Ceramic break pads, has anyone tried this product? Looks like its better in its physical properties, cleaner action(no dust) and environmental friendly too

    Advantages at a glance: low-dust – noise-free – long-life- Significantly reduced dust development


    - Practically noise-free


    - Better rim appearance


    - Less brake pad and brake disc wear


    - Greater comfort


    - No brake judder


    - Better environmental protection


    - Lower repair costs


    - Very safe


    Vehicle brakes convert kinetic energy into heat through friction. This produces wear. A clear indication of this wear is the black dust which accumulates predominantly on the rims, leaving behind unsightly marks. This is not just inconvenient for vehicle owners who place high value on the appearance of their vehicle - brake dust is also harmful to the environment.


    Innovative brake pad compound - ATE Ceramic is Continental's solution for low-dust, noise-free, resource-saving and environmentally friendly braking. The secret of the new brake pads lies in a brake pad compound which uses innovative fiber technology During braking, it produces a "transfer film" on the brake disc. This protects the brake disc from excessive wear. The result: less brake dust, more comfort, less wear.

    changed the first set of brake pads at 35k, the second at 60k and the third set in still going at 82k. Now the SA recommends changing of pads as well as the discs. Thinking of using after market ones and seeing the performance.

    Which brand are you going with? I have read that OEM is best, personally breaks are never to be experimented with !!

    I recently got Type II brake pads and calipers under warranty.I must say there is less brake dust compared to Type I and braking is smooth and crisp too.And there is no squeek or any type of sound coming at slow braking.

  6. You may want to have a look at Brembo brand pads. The price is on par with the OE ones.

    Finally I got my brake pad changed at 32000km. Replaced with Bosch, but it whistles mildly at slow brakings.

    OEM Galfer somehow makes me feel unreliable above 90km especially when rotor temperature shoots up moreover too much of brake dust.
