How many miles have you guys been seeing out of the stock pads. Normal driving with no track time. 50/50 Traffic and Highway driving.

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
I'd say 10-30k miles depending on your braking habits and how spirited you drive.

Re: Brake Pad Life

Are you sure? these are Brembo and they are big breaks not small ones at all!

I think it usually depend on your driving! If you go fast and break hard all the time am Sure you will replace them always as soon and as much as you keep breaking hard!

I've seen some members that needed replacing around 10-15k miles. I have 16k miles on mine and they are getting low.
