If genuine Bosch yes. Make sure they are not knock offs.
Wishing my life away till the next trip!

Hi
I put Bosch on my lux.
Good news is that it stops, bad news is that they are very dusty.
But I can pay for a wash with the money that I saved by not letting Toyota do it. :clap:

I like the Bosch Pads as they are quite soft. This means a little more dust and they will not last as long. The benefit is that they stop well and do not unduly wear the brake disks.
