    Astra G 1.7 CDTi Eco4 - Brake life

    Hi there,

    I am new so forgive me if this has already been asked a million times.

    I have 4 stud non abs brakes on this car and I basically end up having to replace a set of discs before I have got much more than 60% wear in the pads. I am getting maybe 40k out of a set of discs - they then rumble under braking (hot spots).

    Is this the sort of mileage you guys get out of your discs?

    I will soon need my 3rd set of discs in just about 3.5 years of ownership and am having the same debate I have each time - whether or not to get drilled and grooved discs in the hope they last much longer. Has anyone done this with good results?

    Cheers in advance,
    Gavin
