    I just paid $37 shipped for a set of rear pads, + another 12 or so for the sensor (not OEM, will see how it goes)

    Not going to bother with rotors as they were replaced with the last set of pads.

    I got about 20,000 miles out of the rear pads. Fronts still have plenty of material left.
    I wouldn’t measure brake pad life in time.. it’s purely a function of mileage.

    I’ve had this car for about a year. So I got half your time but I may have driven more.

    True on mileage as a variable in wear factor. Yet, I have no idea how many miles.

    I believe this is the set up from factory.

    have not tried green. The Brembos are good, they came with the proper counterweights and packaged very nicely and they were only $50ish US IIRC from Rock Auto.

    There are old threads discussing brake pad mfrs/compounds in detail. Search the forum...

    It’s very variable on brake pad ware/ rotor ware. It all depends on how much your using your brake and if there’s friction from sticking brake calipers and ware / grooving on your discs. If you do any off roading can cause excessive pad ware. I’m finding my pads last around 15000 miles or
    2 1/2 years for pad changing and usually 40000 to 50000 miles Disc change. On my last disc / pad change I decided to try Terrafirma Uprated Discs with Uprated EBC Green Stuff pads. To date the last disc/ pads have lasted 3.5 years and have covered so far 33000 miles. There is no lips on discs yet and ware of pads is less than one third.
