    Default Margalla Brakes Upgrade Possible?

    Is it possible to somehow improve the braking of Margalla a lot by installing some aftermarket parts like Brakepads or probably a whole Brake Kit?

    Dude replace the current Brakes with new drums and new leathers, if you tyres are old, replace them with wider radials, dont play with your car brakes !

    @hauntedfury
    i have margalla and having no prob at all, i use 175/70/R13. front discs + rear leathers are changed after every 40k or depending on condition . drums needs some serious look, if they are not functioning right, like making noise , not griping, re-configure them again, if problem still persists, change them,

    my experience, my margalla breakes 100 times better than my new toyota Gli .......

    cheerz

    Well changing the brake shoe and new disk pad will help but if you really want to improve ur brakes than buy new brake servo or a 2nd hand one in good condition.

    I have been changing pads and all for years but finaly met a mechanic who knew that its not aboud pads its about this thing and this is my 2nd car and we have changed the servo to 2nd hand one and the brake is outstanding just like new :p
