Bro i went to buy the brake pads for my city 2010, there was a range from 700 Rs till 8000 =P .. I always buy stuff from honda center in Azhar Shaheed Market Rawalpindi, the original honda one's were for 8000, thailand made were for 5000, Japanese one were for 2600 (these i got) & the list continued.. He told me that the japanese ones are good for almost 25000 KM's. Did i make the right decision ?
Also the back wheels brake shoe's he said dont need to be done right now as after 2 Brake Pads are changed only after that you need to change them (my car has 39000 on the meter right now). Also do you think any normal car mechanic is to be relied on for getting the pads changed ?
