We have just had our front brakes pads and discs replaced for the first time. We have a 08 Type S GT 2.2.

First set of Back Brakes pads and discs at 50,000 miles.:D
First set of Front Brakes pads and discs at 70,000 miles.:D

I did the rear discs and pads at around 50000. They were totally duff! The fronts are still going strong at 58000 miles. When the pads need changing I'll be swapping to EBC turbo groove discs and braided lines

39k rear discs and pads, 45k front pads but discs still great. Used mintex brakebox kit for the rears and I think they are great. Obviously not up to the greenstuff and such brands but at only £65 better than originals.

Changed mine at about 15K for EBC TG and Greenstuff - changed the front pads again, also Greenstuff, at circa 40K ('smoked' them on the way to JAE)

Next year, I'm changing the disks again (EBC TG) with Type R Fronts, Type R front calipers, and Ferodo DS2500 pads all round

Overkill or Paranoia ? - not for me - it's good brakes (and tyres) that keep you on the road !!!

I've just changed my pads all round for greenstuff just before xmas with 49k on the clock. Discs are still fine at the moment.

Not sure if they have been changed before, but were on oem pads all worn down to the last bit!

So far happy with them.

Changed my OEM honda pads at 16,000 miles for EBC GreenStuff pads. After now completing a further 16,000 miles I still have about 60% left on the EBC's.
Although after more than a total of 30,000 miles i'm still running on OEM discs!!

changed mine at 16k for mintex pads and drilled grooved Mtec discs.

now at 35k and im replacing the lot with stoptech powerslots and stoptech pads.

front mintex pads are completely worn. not to mention they are pants when hot.
i just bought a set of these, so not recommended then? lol in saying that i jsut ordered the drilled not the grooved and drilled..

My pads got changed all round at 29k when the car was serviced prior to sale.

Its now on 32k & I've noticed although the front discs are hardly worn there are 2 levels of wear showing on the disc. Obviously where the pads are now is shiny & there is about another 5mm above it that has had some use & then the very edge of the disc. Is this just where the old pads had worn to?
I've even checked to see if the 1.8 or 2.2 pads would fit in case they had been fitted by mistake, but they look totally different.

Absolutely correct - I'm "smoking" as well ! :p ...

Actually, having read some more critiques \ reviews \ opinions, I'm now leaning towards Cosworth Streetmasters - ponder, ponder, ponder :cool: ...
