yesterday i changed my Passo's Front Brake Pads and got a HUGE shock ... the story goes like this...
i have been looking for genuine Brake pads for my passo for like 2 months and on 5th February finally got them from a friend who imported them for me any how he brought two different sets and asked me to bring the installed one as a sample so that he can give me the one that fit in my car..
i did the same and when i handed over my installed break pads to him he said they are not genuine have you changed them i was in shock as this was the first time that i was going to change brake pads i said no these are the one which came with the car, he took the pads and check them in a machine which said made in taiwan non-genuine toyota part
he further said the dealers aka stealers change most of the parts with non genuine and same has been done with your brake pads thats why they got hard in just 10 months of running..
the point of telling this is that we should check each and everything before buying these JDMs from the stealers of Karachi and its better to import one directly
Guys beware of such scams and do check each and every part of the car before buying
