Well I got just over 17k miles out of my front pads, but I'm sure you know this... Rear pads are still 65% good.
And as most of you know, I sometimes drive hard, but not all the times, when I'm not driving hard, I always time lights, let of the gas a long ways before a stop, etc.
But what I think really killed my pads was my trip to San Francisco... there's nothing like going 120 and then having to abruptly slow down to 60... I think that really sheered the crap out of them, made a few stops like that on the way up and back (1000 miles roundtrip).
