    Default Pads and Discs Lifespan

    How long have your brake pads and discs survived?

    I got my 150 CDTi with 28k on the clock. 2 years and 35k miles later, I am still on the same pads and discs with plenty still on them.

    Where is best place to get replacements for all 4 corners and how much for parts alone? I did look on the autovaux site but they have nothing listed.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Insignia

    Trim : SRI NAV

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI 140

    Year : 2013

    Mileage : 20000

    Default

    Bought my car at 26k miles 20 months back, just hit 75k and I'm still on the same front pads/discs, and had rear pads done at 40k.

    Had MOT at 70k and no advisories so guessing they'll be OK for a while.
