Re: Premature brake wear

Sat Mar 20, 2021 5:27 am

Still on my original brakes on my '13 purchased new, still on my original brakes on my '12 purchased in '16 and I assume the brakes were original back then. I am thinking the '12 may need brakes at some point as it has basically zero regen due to an 8 bar and falling battery :( I also get a lot of brake dust on the front rims, a sure sign the pads are wearing quickly.

I just had exactly same experience - 35K, two year old car - needed new rotors and discs on front - dealer told me it was because I use the e-pedal all the time.

That makes no sense to me. e-Pedal or no. Get a second opinion.
