    Default Front Brake Pads 14k/1 year and worn out

    My front brake pad warning light just come on last week. Just checked them and they are worn out. Exactly 1 year and 14k from fitting the last set (EBC Redstuff)

    Pretty quick wear rate. I like the pads braking power but not sure i want to spend another £75.00+ for them to go that quick.

    thats fast, but EBC pads are soft ( to grip quicker).. so 14K isn't too bad..Try the police spec 314mm pads if you want a little more service out of them.they are about £50 +Vat...

    I wasn't aware there was an uprated "police spec" 314mm brake pad for the 3.2 V6 or 3.0 V6 CDTI
    The only additional part I could find for "police spec" on my car was the metal engine tray

    My front brakes pads lasted 31,300 miles and were replaced FOC under warranty
