    Just chk last week ori from WH, toyota is only RM580/pc. Sure can discount some more coz i buy oil filter them @RM35 and outside i can get for RM28 only same ori.

    Vision is the most expensive workshop i ever been, may be for those who are rich is ok.

    if interested with dba (Disc Brakes Australia) slotted street series rotors, let me know, no worries on the customs whatsoever....the only thing is they might take a while to arrive here....approx. 3mth+-. see my previous posts.
    thx

    For Project MU try Kelvin:012-3232221
    From DBA catalog they supply rotors at minimum thickness ie Front:28mm as opposed to OEM 32mm

    Get the correct dimension of your rotors before ordering.

    Hi all...

    Just changed my brake rotors (project mu), brake pads (project mu), brake hoses (pro rs) and replaced brake fluid (endless).

    Brake rotors, hoses and pads purchased from Kakimotor sunway, apparently IS250 shares the same rotors as Alphard/Vellfire. 298mm is not mistaken. Wallet damage RM1300 for rotors, RM380 for brake pads, RM 380 for hoses.

    Brake fluid and labor done at my regular workshop (Auto Enginuity @ Glenmarie).

    Braking is now excellent.

    Just to share.

    Cheers.

    Hi Jimmy,

    I believe original GS300 brake system should be better than that, after all it's a Lexus/Toyota.

    Anyways, for warped brake rotors to my knowledge there is only 2 ways to solve, skim or replace.

    If it is beyond the tolerance for skimming, the only option is replacement. For me I would replace it with a good reliable aftermarket part.

    I checked with Wing Hin in Jalan Loke Yew and Kakimotor in Sunway before I decided on my brake rotors. The project mu rotors were only around RM200 more than the original parts. I liked the project mu because they were slotted....among other things hahaha...

    Just based on my own opinion.

    Cheers.
