Hi,
Im coming upto to 3years ownership. In that time ive done 8.5k miles. No track days, all road miles withgood percentage of spirited drives.

Does anyone know how long the brakes hold up with this type of driving, forgot to ask on last service, and with 36monther coming plus a few litchfield upgrades didnt want a surprise 3k jumping out the woodwork too.

PS my Dunlops are just ready for changing at 8.5k

8K for mine, however killed them under extreme conditions (VMAX) & swapped out for DBA Discs & Pagid RS29 pads. Never looked back after that as the setup was epic on the road & track:)

Changed the front discs and pads on mine at 18 months and 16k for AP discs and carbonetic c-spec pads.

OEM discs were cracking!

TBH, the standard brakes are goo for fast road use but were always suspect to cracking as they were drilled. I do a lot of track work and wanted the best from the start, so changed the OEM brakes after about 3k miles

15K done, only 1 track day, front discs are cracking and pretty much started at about 9K, enough pad meat left by the looks of it (tbc) to scrub them at the Ring for 3 days and get home, then in for service, Alcon front rotors and yet tbd (prob pagid's) pads all round.
