      Brembo Brake Disc and Pads

      As we all know there is not much market here for Mods for the New Honda City hence i was checking some Malaysian sites for some Disc and Brake Pads


      I got a guy ready to sell me Brembo Normal and Max Brake discs along with Pads from Brembo and Bendix.

      Brembo STD D/Rotor - Rm240.00/pair
      Brembo Max D/Rotor - Rm450.00/pair
      Brembo STD B/Pad (1st batch) - Rm120.00/pair
      Brembo STD B/Pad (2nd batch) - N/A
      Bendix MKT B/Pad (1st Batch) - Rm120.00/pair
      Bendix MKT B/pad (2nd Batch) - Rm150.00/pair

      The total bill after shipping changes to India would be around $120+$50 shipping. Comes around 10-11k after paying duties.

      Would this be a good price for the same or we can get these in India for a cheaper price?

      and i really don't think that Brakes are sufficient on the City 5G

      Get the best grippy tyres out there in the market, that will help with the braking immensely. You won't need upgraded brake rotors and pads. Honestly, for the kind of money you pay, I find them to be worthless. If anything, these rotors will chew away your pads in half the time. And once the rotors warp, you'll have to wait for importing the next set.

      I don't think the ANHC is quick enough to warrant Brembos. Plus, you never know until you physically measure the rotor sizes and see if they are the same as the aftermarket ones. Sometimes I've ordered rotors from abroad and found that these dudes in India had changed the size! Money wasted. So unless you are 100% sure that these will fit without any issues and don't mind taking a chance, get them!

      Or just run OE rotors and pads and get good tyres!

      The Brake bite and feel was never there. It's not about the speed. Last day i was driving 150-160 and the Brakes were really not biting at all and the discs are new along with Pads and bleeding done twice.
      Primacy LC's are good enough for the grip they offer.

      Also i will get those as a set for Disc and Pads therefore no chance of rotors chewing away pads.

      Authorized disc and Brakes pad combo costs around 8.5K installed and disc rotors are shitty quality and get bad very soon due to their Soft nature.

      Tyres will come after these

      Regarding the Size i have to make sure that they are the correct ones.

      That is how Honda has setup the braking. I am not too sure if that "feel" will come because you change the rotors and pads. Almost all of the braking on the ANHC is at the very fag end, more like an On/Off switch. From whatever experience I've had, that's only going to get worse with the new combo. As in, you'll get more braking power, but that gradual feel might still not be there and all of it might be at the fag end!

      Are the rotors, solid? Or cross drilled/slotted/both? If they aren't solid, doesn't matter what pads you pair them with, wear will be twice as fast on aftermarket rotors and pads. These aren't meant to last long, unlike the OEM ones.

      It's not completely at the end but comes into play after 40% of Applying pressure. so it might improve a bit. Just an experiment where people might benefit if it works.

      Also there are 2 types of Rotors, Brembo Standard which is Solid and Brembo Max which is Slotted. The Brake Pads from bendix are Metallic ones so have a higher life or else i may go for Stock Brembo ones.

      Hi,

      There is another cost you have not factored in which is customs duty. Anyways if you are able to get a set of rotors and pads from Brembo under 15k INR to your door pls go right ahead.

      Wonder, on what roads you drive at these speeds in India, envying you guys !

      In my opinion, braking at these speeds won't be that precise & punchy until unless it is a high end car.

      Not really. My car brakes well from 160 on the speedo.(No abs/stand on the brakes) The tyres have a huge role with respect to braking. Better the tyres, faster you decelerate.

      You guys talking about brake feel huh ? Go & sit in XUV & brake at these speeds, you feel ANHC is way better & gives a lot of bite

      Partly agree & disagree. With Bridgestone Duelers, my XUV still sucks in braking ! Now what do you have to say about that I'm not blaming the tyres alone here. The entire chain has to be good enough. The weakest link always gives the bad impression. When you replace your tyres with good ones & then there's a possibility that you still may feel brakes are bad.
