    Default C4 Rear Brakes

    My c4 has done 101365 Ks and is still on its original rear pads and disks.

    Ive just had a service and my mechanic says no need to replace them yet.

    What Ks is everyone else getting out of theirs VTR COUPE 1.6

    I think that's pretty good for a modern car.

    Your location (not Sydney metro) and gearbox (5-speed manual) would probably have helped.

    What's the wear rate on the fronts like?

    I had the fronts replaced at 69k and got the same out of the Mich energy originals

    In the end we replaced our C4 tyres because they got progressively more noisy, even though they had (probably) another 5000 km in them. Not complaining - 65,000 km before the change.
