FYI, OEM Pads are ATE make.
The ones that sell for around 1K are duplicates IMO.
They cost me Rs2300. 'Touchwood',brakes like hit a wall ! But don't know how it will be after sometime will wait and see.
Only one rotor skimmed/machined other one is fine.
Type 1 or 2?
No clue.should be the lastest one .I got it done outside FASS .
Can you post picture of brakepads if you have any.. that would be great.
No I cant ,I am out of India now at least for a month.
I am sick and tired of changing my brake pads... I am running my third set at 41k kms on ODO and there is about 20% life left. I changed my brake as below
1st set which came with the car - Lasted 18k kms
2nd set changed at 18k - Lasted 12k kms
3rd set changes at 30k (3rd service) also replaced the rotors- Current ODD 41k kms- Would be changing it after 1k kms- so would have lasted 12k kms
Is this acceptable? Is the quality so bad that it lasts only 12k kms?
The second set which I had replaced ate through the rotors as well
Are there any alternate options for brake pads which last atleast 15k kms?
To be honest, the life of brake pads depends upon a lot of factors. The reason I am saying this is because either Fiat's brake pads are of highly variable quality or else why do people are having such variable mileage out of the brake pads?
@Roadking- It is definitely not normal for brake pads to last just 12k km or so. I have heard members trying Brembo brake pads for Punto by the way.
You must be panic braking at each corner to kill your brake pads so fast.
Do u have pics of the brake pads that you think are worn out and replaced.
Everyone seems to be ranting that the brake pads are wearing out at 30 k. You seem to belong to a completely different level.
Are u replacing them because the service advisor asked you too or are they really wearing out so fast.

No my friend I don't panic brake, in fact my brake usage is very less as I rely heavily on engine braking a very old habit you see.
Didn't bother to take pics of it cos I knew they were busted, I am not sure about everyone ranting about 30k life from their brake pads, for me if they last 18k+ I am happy with them, but the last two lasted only 12k so the concern
I have replaced them after inspecting them and they are really wearing out fast, I even make sure I clean the pads every 5k kms while rotating my tyres. I do drive on the aggressive side sometimes but I cant blame my driving style for this quick wear and tear..
Not sure how I and many others are able to extract min 30 k then. Something must be different between us and u then. Its not that we are n braking at all to save the pads from wearing.
The abs on my car kicks in at high speeds at least once a day, that speaks a lot about my braking I guess.
