8-) Hi all i checked my front brakes the other day and i have about 1mm left, then i looked back at maintance records and they have done 56000km, not bad for a EL?
Has anyone got more from a EF-EL? 8-)

My ED XR6 still has the same pads on it from when I bought it 40000kms ago, and they still have a heap of meat left on them.
Got no idea on what brand or type is on it though.

I used to get 10,000 outta ford OEM sets of fronts - now thats pads AND discs (ie. each service was pads adn discs too).

I now run DBA slotteds and Lucas pads, onto my second set of each and clicking over 90,000KMs, so 45thou a set.

But as for the question in the title, the fronts will get 180KM/H on them no worries, the rears too. :lol:

it isn't really how many km's you get out of pads - a country driver will get tens of thousands more than a city driver ... so it depends how much you stop and how hard you brake!! Not how many KM's you have done....
