Ceramic Brake pads

Post  pussy_lover on Mon Nov 30, 2009 10:25 am

Hi All,

I've been looking around for the above locally but seems no dealers have brought this in. I know of one bro here who managed to get his hands on a set via a group buy at TCS. So on my own, been checking on websites where I can order. Finally managed to locate one that will ship to Singapore. Details below:

Model: Bendix Ceramic Brake Pads (Front)
Car Model: Suzuku Forenza (Optra)
Part No: D1035
Price: USD30.79 per set
Shipping (priority shipping): USD27.54 per set
Total: USD58.24 per set
Remarks: Probably have to add 7% GST

If any bros, interested to order together, let me know. If not, I'll go ahead and order one set for myself.

On the conservative side, you should multiply that by 1.4 .

That should be SGD 82.00, give or take maybe around SGD 90.00

Yup, there about. Let's hope USD rate don't go up north.

The rate is going up especially so since Dubai announce that they seek extension for their loan. If not mistaken it has moved from 1.3++ to 1.4++, so this morning more bad news from Dubai disclaiming all ties from the Investement Company from the Dubai government, expect USD to move up some more.

Perhaps this will shed some lights on what bro PL will be importing:-



Through our extensive OE experience, we have developed friction formulas for many of the vehicles on the road today, and that experience enables us to stay ahead of the technology curve in the aftermarket.
Bendix CQ®️ Ceramic Brake Pads provide smooth braking performance, greater stopping power, quieter braking and less dust.

NAO ceramic friction materials are recognized by original equipment vehicle manufacturers as an option to reduce noise, vibration and harshness performance and minimize wheel dust.

Dust has become one of the key factors in North American OE brake development - especially with the growing popularity of alloy wheels. As a result, we're constantly working to lower dust generation. Our new, cleaner friction formulas were developed using Design-of-Experiment (DOE) techniques, which allow our engineers to select the appropriate raw materials to reduce rotor wear - the main cause of brake dust. We studied material composition, particle size, and chemistry - and, then chose the right mix of materials to minimize brake dust.

Bendix®️ is doing research in noise technology that's unheard of in the industry. Brake noise itself is caused by vibration. To measure vibration, we use advanced modeling techniques, including Finite Modal Analysis. By suspending a brake pad, attaching a small three-axis accelerometer to it and then tapping it with a small force hammer, we're able to get a computer-generated readout on how the pad is vibrating. Our engineers can take this information and create an accurate computer model of the pad. From there, we design chamfer, slot, and shim (insulator) configurations to minimize the audible noise frequencies

This product should not be mistaken, the ones that is available here, at RDY is the TitaniuMetallic™️ II , this cost $135 and it's NOT ceramic. Therefore if can get at ard $90, this is a good deal as the ceramic pads will last longer than your standard stock or OE pads. Two times change stock pads is equal one time change for ceramic pads, therefore the cost is = or +- neglible!

Thanks for the heads up bro. It's a pity if you can't join in my order coz been to RDY last Monday to do some minor repairs - replace wiper washer motor/tank - and quite true they have the titanum metallic type of brake pad. This is not the same as the Ceramic CQ pads. Btw, also available for Aveo but not sure if its the same Aveo model we have in Singapore. Specs might be different.

It could be, the Aveo in US is the same shape as our Aveo, only difference is the engine used but not too sure about the other parts such as brakes and etc. To play it safe can check it out under Daewoo Kalos.

I placed my order for the ceramic brake pads last Sunday. Got confirmation yesterday that item already shipped by Fedex. Let's see how this goes and if all goes well, at least we have an alternative source for car parts (at least for Optra) Very Happy Will update you guys when i take delivery.

Just checked Fedex tracking and ETA is 14 Dec 2009, 6pm. This item was picked up from Ohio USA. About 1 week or so delivery. No too bad lah...now we have alternative supply source. For you info, when i actually put the order through, the brake pads cost USD2.00 less. Total damage is USD53.82 including priority freight (less than SGD80.00). Have to wait for credit card bill to confirm actual SGD damage. If you guys are interested, i get the stuff from www.RockAuto.com. They do have various other stuff for Aveo and Optra but you need to be sure that the parts are compatible with our rides... Happy hunting.. Laughing

Guys, i only order 1 set of the brake pads. Just wanted to be safe and ensure that the pads fit. Also since this is first doing order with this company, just want to make sure it's reliable. We'll see how this goes. Perhaps, we can consolidate future orders to save a bit on freight.

Ok guys, got my ceramic pads this morning (15 Dec). Was supposed to be delivered yesterday but can't make it home on time so arrange for alternative day. Appearance wise nothing special but guess looks isn't everything. Now contemplating fitting in the pads. Maybe this would be a good excuse to get a new set of deep-dish rims and tyres... scratch
