I've always found BlendMounts to be stunningly unattractive. It also drops your V1 into the middle of the windshield.

You should do the rotors when you do the pads.

FWIW, I got 99,000 from my OEM rear brakes, 115,000 miles from my front. YMMV.

It says nothing about the manufacturer's perceptions of the US market. It speaks only to the speed rating of the tires that come with the base model vs. the sport models.

Well, the updates get a bit soft after it hits the US. My 2009 showed as being at the VPC for about 6 months after it had been delivered. :rolleyes:
