Just curious on how long ppl's brakes are holding up. I'm on my third set now and I only have 44k miles on the car.

I'm still on my first set....and I think I'll be getting new ones like next year....hopefully they'll last for 20k miles...

I had 24,000 miles on mine (and that's all stop and go Washington DC traffic) and the dealer told me they still had plenty of life left. But still, I just changed them last week to Hawk HPS pads. :thumbup:

P.S. I only changed the front pads, rear are still stock.

Definitely depends on how much you ride your brakes. Almost at 20k and the brakes still have plenty of meat on them.
