    Hi everybody,
    Can you help me tell me how used are my front brake pads?

    Does anyone have any idea how long (in mm) is the metallic part of the brake pad? So i can have an idea of the dimensions of the brake pad.

    I have been to an auto repair shop and the guy told me that that I should have 5000 km left (about 3300 miles) but a member family told me the auto repair guy was exaggerating just to make some business.
    Thanks. IMG_0087.JPG IMG_0085.JPG

    Those look half worn, I'd say in a prius, you have about 50000 miles remaining.

    The service guy has no clue a prius uses electronic braking majority of the time
