brake pads

how many miles did you guys get on the factory set? im on 25k miles and mine are starting to squeek, just wondering if this is premature or about right?

Plenty of life left in them.
I'm more than pleased with the performance and longevity of the stockers.

48k, getting low. I am happy with their performance/longevity. Just wish they would dust less!

what's up with the squeel anyway? mine squeel all the time, it's annoying. i'm pretty sure the pads aren't worn down enough to need replacing but i'll check'em again anyway. i'm at 32k

Been told too many times that the squeel is an inherent trait of high performance pad material. Sounds legit because absolutely nothing is going to get rid of it [:p]

Mine don't squeel that much but as the weather warms up and the brakes are operating warmer I get some squeel at times. When The car was newer they would straight scream, most annoying sound to ever come from a new car

yea the more i read i think its probably due to the warm weather cause thats pretty much when its been starting but i thought i would just ask, its more of a light squeel then anything else
