Pads are only 40-60 bucks. Pretty damn easy to replace. nuff said. can't do this on your smaat phone. Firm high speed braking, contrary to what many think, typically does not fry pads............roughly driven cars that require chronic ESC intervention will fry brakes fast!!! Adaptive cruise is a prime culprit BTW!!! That shitty system is like your grandmother with her left foot on the brake pedal constantly.
