Avoid Eicher brake pads
I fitted a set of Eicher brake pads to my BMW the other week, as Euro car parts had a good deal on them.
They were not great to start with but improved a bit at normal speeds as they had bedded in. They have now done 500 miles, so I decided to go for a spirited drive, and was shocked at how badly the car stops with them in. I very nearly didn't slow down in time for a corner due to brake fade, which I never experienced on the old unknown brand of pads.
So be warned, they are not really upto the job and buy something else.
You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall, especially if it catches fire.
