    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread because my pads are getting low,....never thought that the originals would cost that much. :114:

    Oh right, first time I've seen that, I assumed that a 'pad' were the full size of the caliper!

    lots of uneven wear on pads too one is very close to the metal and the rest are about 2mm. very hard to see the wear on the pads as there are 8 off them.you realy need to pull the calipers off to see

    Had a discussion with my dealer yesterday as they charged me 220 for two sets of pads for the front wheel ( 8 pads) This can't be right., I tried to convince them that they charged me double price, but they would not listen.
