Hold on, so your Forfour has managed 102,000 miles without wearing out brake pads?

Secondly, why have both the Seat and the Honda had just one disc replaced? I was always told you should replace both discs at the same time.

appologies. i have corrected the Seat and Honda. with the exceptions of the Seat and Civic which were bought brand new by my uncle, the others were bought 2nd hand.

the reason for replacing just the discs and not the pads on my forfour was that the discs had a fairly big lip on them when i bought it but the pads we about 25% worn, so in my eyes it made more sence to replace the discs and reuse the pads

Ah, I see! I thought you'd owned it from new and the brake pads were still good after 102,000 miles - that would be a miracle!

My 2012 Fiesta 1.6 TDCi Econetic has 44.450 miles. But probably counts as high considering it is only 16 months old!!
