    My rear discs and pads were changed at about 65k as they were knackered.

    mine have a lip on them, the car's just done 40000, so i voted '40-60000', as i don't think they'll last much past that.
    why are vectra Cs so heavy on rear brakes? is it too much bias to the rear or just under-specced components?
    my rear wheels are always dirtier than the fronts from brake dust, and the front discs aren't as worn.

    Just cos they've got a lip doesn't mean they are beyond useful life. It's the minimum thickness that will denote whether they need replacing or not... and that is usually generous.

    yeah, i know that.
    i didn't say they appeared to be worn out now, just that they have a lip, and the front doesn't. i imagine they will be near with wear limit by 60k. that's all.

    It's the other way round for me; my front wheels are always much dirtier.
