    Still original brake pads at 33k. Unfortunately I changed wheels/tyres so don't know about them. Rears had 5mm front 3mm at 30K. Bridgestones though...

    My astra coupe 1.8 had 55k out of the front pads and 60k out of the rears. 10K front tyres and 16k rears. Just cos I drive fast doesn't mean I drive on the brakes..... There is fast and consistant smooth driving and people who are constantly jamming on the ancors all the time for no real need.

    Thats the problem, if you know a road well then its easy to drive it fast. Just be careful no one in a tractor, for example, pulls out in front of you. I came round a bend at 60mph once to find a long line of traffic stopped, a car comming the other too. How I managed to brake, swerve after the oncomming car had passed and stop in the wrong lane after passing 5 or 6 cars who were stopped and not kill myself I will never know. If anything had gone wrong I would be dead now. Please remember this when your next driving fast. I'm not having a go at you, just a bit of friendly advise.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
