    Hard on brakes. Are the replacement factory pads, or aftermarket? 40,000 miles first replacement on front and rears. Second replacement on the fronts at 80K.
    Factory pads is the only way to go. I cheap skated on my XJR brakes and I hated it. So you if you play hard you got to pay.

    What makes you think manufacturers go with “best” pads as opposed to ones they get the best price on? Manufacturers are notorious for not utilizing beat in class parts and to think the oem pads are the best stopping is a conclusion reached without evidence. Im not saying buy the cheapest pads, im saying buy the best pads. Unlikely the oem ones stop better than all of the other available options.

    I generally agree (not brake specific) about O.E. parts... and will often seek out the OEM parts minus the auto-makers box... best of both worlds. OEM part without the markup for the automobile emblem on it.
    I don’t have a lot of a faith with Land Rover regarding supplier selection or design though. They have re-sourced the oil filters to China. The Land Rover Mahle oil filters say “Made in China” right on the box. I’m refuse to pay $30 for a Chinese made cartridge filter. I doubt LR has even stuck with the same supplier for brake pads since 2012. It has been shopped around to the lowest bidder 5x to feed the aftermarket/service demand.
    I am willing to sacrifice some initial bite with ceramic pads to avoid the dust and squeal. If I can save some money in the process... even better.
    Also good on you for getting 40K miles. That’s more than 2x the average life for the SC. My wife drives like a grandma and we are getting 15-18K miles. So you must really baby the brakes.

    Pagid/ textar / jurid are all part of the same group - so probably similar formulations for the same vehicle and they are typically the oem supplier in Europe too. The softer pads have better cold bite but generate lots of dust - so the ceramics (like akebono) give a little in cold performance but less dust. At temp, ceramic performs better, but not as good as carbon - that is used for track pads - but those typically have noise and cold performance issues - so take your pick !

    Had Hawks Ceramics pad done 12k miles ago on 2011 RR SC. No dust but noise is persistent on slow braking to a traffic light. Little more pressure on brakes takes care of noise.

    If the brembo ceramics have no noise, little dust, and cost less id say theyre a win. Will try them when my current pads are done.
