Archerfish -- Probably.
I've got 180k on my "6" now -- on second set of brakes. They're still serviceable but probably have another ~20k miles worth of life left in them.
It's not hard to burn through a set of brakes in 20k miles or less. You won't like what it does to your fuel economy doing that (every bit of braking you do is heat that you must dissipate, and you paid for that energy in the form of gas) but.... it's your choice.
180,000 and this is in miles and not kilometers?!? That means, the average is 90k.
I only raced the car thrice so that might have caused it.
I'm hoping that EBC Green is better than stock. The stock pads cost way more than the aftermarket ones. Well, what else can I expect from stealership (I got that word here).
What he said.
I roll to stops as often as I can, I approach turns at the highest speed I can without hitting brakes, I drive (usually) as calmly as I can because it's too easy to get stressed with a long commute and never worth it.
I also do this, but some drivers brake too early and so I have to brake too.
In our local place, we have a lot of "uneducated" driver. Many will stay and hog the overtaking lane and they run way below 80 kph!
Another annoying thing, some of them, if not most of them, will enter your lane very, very, and painfully slow as they merge. There was an instance that I have to slam on the brakes!
It's difficult to use the cruise control and maintain a speed of 83 kph as some are running at 60! I understand trucks, but cars?
Then again, I have to adjust. The world will not adjust for me. I need to drive slow, like the rest of them.
