      Post Front brake pads for honda city - i vtec

      Hi All,
      Need some wisdom on the brake pad. My NHC has done 56000 (Jan-2009), in the recent servicing at Magnum honda, they asked me to replace the front brake pads. As usual our great honda service centers are overcharging the spare and the servcies. Across the three honda service centers the cost of replacement with OEM Pad is around ~4500.

      Read in some blogs/forum, NISSIN, brake pad would cost around 1200/-.

      Can somebody help me with the following information.

      1. What's the cost of Nissin brake pad outside the HOnda show room in Bangalore? and where to buy them (checked with shello auto, JC road, they don't have it.)
      2. In case, if I were to look for alternative to Nissin...is Bosch a good second choice?
      3. Which is the reliable garage in Bangalore, who can do the fitting work (if I were to procure this brake pads from outside)

      If you guys don't help me...I've no option but to go back to Magnum honda :-(

      Appreciate your help in advance.

      rgds,
      Ravi

      Set of front brake pads (4 units) for ANHC cost some RS 4025 including taxes in nov 2013.

      In my view it is fair price for OEM parts which are probably imported.

      I will not take chances with non OEM parts for critical items. My car is running now on fifth set price has gone up from some 2600 to 4025 in 4.5 years, I feel most of it is due to depreciation of rupee, of course inflation to extent. Each pair has lasted some 25000-28000 KM.

      The Brembo pads and discs on my car are not OEM but OEM on a Jaguar and many other cars. Aftermarket pads are fine if you buy some brand name like Brembo, Ferrodo, SBS....there must be many more makers of good pads.

      Hi Ravin.

      Delphi has pads for the City. And they are pretty decent and won't cost an arm and a leg.

      Drop by at Bay6 Motorworks (run by the founders of Gearheads) and I can personally inspect your car and have them changed for you.

      We also have some good brake oil to bleed your brakes with. piyush7243 will vouch that his ANHC brakes are better since we bled them with some Motul brake oil.

      Yep, i was using the TVS brake fluid and before changing to Motul, the brakes are spot on now and doesn't get hard over a period of time which was happening with TVS earlier.Try it you wont regret.

      Will also be going for Delphi brake pads this time, these have gone good for 15k now and a change would be coming in next 10k or so.The cost of Honda Brake Pads have gone up and surprisingly the Rotors are cheaper than the pads itself.

      Hello, would you please tell from where did you source the Brembo brake pads?
