Brembo mileage on 11-12 gt's

I know it has alot to do with driving styles,but on average how many miles should we expect out of our OEM brembo brake pads.

Good question. I'd like to know this. I have 18,900 miles on mine. They feel fine, I'm sure I'm adapting to them as they worsen so I forgot how they really felt. Plus they never used to squeak and now they are. Not like a metal to metal squeak. Normal annoying brembo squeak.

Driving style. I assume they resist far better than generic brakes and rotors so they may still last ages with hard braking.

I just looked nothing that I could see other than being inspected every time the oil is changed.

I do not have brembo brakes, just the standard ones, but at 30k they are still holding up well. Probably something like 80% left. I'm always very easy on the brakes too though.

Re: Brembo mileage on 11-12 gt's

Don't know if this helps but I had Brembos on my SRT8 b4 I traded for a Mustang and I had 35K on the brakes and they were still holding strong.
