Talking Brake Pad Life

Well, my front brake pads finally need changing after 82,000 mile and 35.5 months of driving Never had any last that long before!

The rears are still showing another 14,000 mile = 96,000 in total

I must be losing my touch or perhaps the miswah is correct in saying I only accelerate

You must be driving that denzil like a granny, even accelerating hard will wear down the rears long before the fronts. Let me borrow it for two laps around the Ring and I'll shave 20000 miles off for you.
