    Brake Pad warning

    Im getting the brake pad warning on the GSi started today.
    What are the groups recommendation for replacement pads, and cheapest place to source them

    Also how long is the advanced warning approx for, my old escort used to have approx 2k worth of miles left in the pads.

    cheers
