    Hi All,
    Anecdotal 3 weeks after install, better acceleration 0-40. Personal delivery driver with an average of 70 stops a day. Ave around 40 -44 mpg. I’m happy with the red bullet.

    Did you drive in normal or eco before installing it and what mode do you drive in now?

    Delivery drivers are a great resource for testing brake pad makers... If you find some brake pads that perform better than OEM please let us know?

    I believe the pads should last for at least 100k km.
    On my old Ford the pads went on till 80k mind you that was not a hybrid car, but 70% of the time on the highway. After one year just eyeball the pads from the side. If you don't see much wear, likely they will last a very long time.
