    So what are you guys getting for Brake Life with 6-speed?

    I have noticed very little Brake Dust,
    of course I also notice I end up Down Shifting 1-2 gears then accelerating through corners :)

    My brakes always last longer on a car with a Stick than an automatic.

    I have well over 70% of pad thickness left after 55,000 miles on my '09 R/T 6sp.

    It's mostly based on type of driving you do. City, rural, highway, etc.

    I changed my front pads out at around 18K. They weren't down to the wear indicators yet, I just couldn't deal with the massive amount of brake dust and the squealing that came along with it. I went with Power Stop Z26's.

    Thanks.

    My 2010 just turned 18k last week (10k since June)and have not seen mass brake dust yet, or any noises,
    of course I am running it through the CarWash every Friday (Black Car)

    I have been playing with tires about once a month, but now it's Rainy Season, probably won't have them off again until March.
