My stock pads lasted less than 1000 miles....before I switched them to the Powerstop pads. Far less dust. Just being logical here...since the OEM pads produce significantly more dust, and that dust has to come from somewhere, therefore it seems that means the OEM pads would not last that long.Thanks for the good wishes. I honestly didn't think that the fairly routine task of changing pads would turn into such a stressful and quest for alternatives.
I have done brake jobs on a variety of vehicles. The Brembo brakes are different than OEM brakes. However, they are also a quite ingenious design. Swapping pads is incredibly simple. Simple to the point of literally being able to swap them at the track for race day, and put the street pads back in for the drive home.
