      sonata gold brake discs upgrade

      HEY guys , my sonata gold is due replacement for front discs . The whole car shudders when using brakes from 100 plus km. The service guys are sure the front brake discs need to be replaced. I have been to rae dynamics bangalore, they have nothing in discs for sonata, and also checked with petes<tarrox>,they to have nothing. MY DRIVING STYLE IS VERY AGGRESSIVE ON THE HIGHWAY , need discs which perform when brakes slammed at 170 kms. I know about ebc pads, but my problem is with discs. PLEASE suggest somehting <need to change in a week>. The stock front discs are around 8000 in hyundai. I would not mind around 15 k

      EBC surely has rotors for the Sonata in their 3GD series. But you will have to import them yourself.
      EBC Brakes - Brakes for Cars, Motorcyc ... s and SUV Search by vehicle. Your model is from 2001-2004.

      If not try these out. Better you e-mail them and find out if your model suits these rotors just to verify once.

      Did your current/stock discs meet your expectation ? If yes, then it is better that you stick to stock. I doubt if you can gain any breaking improvement with aftermarket discs over stock (Sonata being Hyundai's high end car, should have best). Possibility of you getting a fake or not as good as stock is much higher with aftermarket discs.
      If it Ain't Broke...Break It! Make It Better!

      Rahul i want something off the block.Which i can get inn bangalore or some one who can get them .

      Mechanix , the current discs are not that effective after 100kms. Car is high end but discs are small<around 200mm>.
      The sonata embera discs are around 220mm, but service guys say that cant be done

      If you want something available locally, your only bet is to stick to stock.

      Also if you want to get bigger discs, you will need bigger calipers too, different brake pads etc. Its too much of a hassle.

      Your only option would be to keep changing rotors often. How often do you change them now?

      Acually this was my moms old car, was lying in the office . I happened to see it ,some how liked it changed ignition coil,plugs, plug wires cluth plate,pressure plate, clutch release bearing, new headlight assembly,got the bumpers repainted, put in yoko 225/60 c drives, changed the leather to stanley on the steering wheel and door pads, got new suspension bushes etc. The car has new brake pads according to the service history. The service guy says since the car is run 140000kms the discs have become too smooth.SO if i change to new oem discs the vibration will go but will i get better braking like in the atlis.

      ps : Can i use scorpio rotors

      So your rotors have run for 1,40,000 kms?

      Most people I know who drive fast change their rotors once every 35-40k kms. And brake pads every 10-15k kms.

      I suggest you get new OEM rotors and see the difference. You rotors are warped and its best to get them replaced.

      And no, you can't fit Scorpio rotors, not unless its a perfect dia match. Even if it was, it would still be too much of a risk to experiment with brakes.

      Once you install brand new rotors do remember to go easy for the first 500 kms.
