Thanks 350Z, the FE figures, are when I didn't cross the 2500 RPM which was during the run in period, lets see after the 5k service when the oil change happens.

Is the place you have clicked somewhere near kolar???
I think you should speak to Toyota that brakes are not that good.
Have heard that nowadays Fortuner is getting Prado's brake kits.
So better cross check it during the service.
And brakes should be good with less stopping distance.
Thanks mukesus, the pics were clicked in Banerghatta , all Fotuners post March 2010 gets the upgraded brake kit from the LC Prado, mine being a Jan 2011 model it does have the Prado braking kit, as I said the brakes are adequate , you need to get used to it, but it is bad for a car worth Rs.25 lakhs
nevertheless the brakes do their job.
I would like to compare 100-0 stopping time with Aria, Santa Fe and Captiva, all of these have rear discs.
