Is it possible to get toyota brake pads (since alza is toyota passo sette)? My previous myvi used pads for daihatsu boon, korean brand. Those pads are way better than stock pads.

Sorry to bring up this old issue, I had changed the ori pad to Bendix and the sound is terrible when braking if the car is cool.
Then I have tried many times sanding the pad and it works well only for 1-2 days and back noisy. I notice the pad is not flat, meaning the centre portion is thicker than the corner. Any one has use this before?

Are you using the Bendix Stealth? If yes, they are designed that way and suppose to be very quiet.
Are your disc rotor worn?

I had thrown away the box and my rotor seems to be ok.

Just checked, yes it was the older model, not much blue colour and not much groove. May be I did not use back the original sims?
