103,300 mi From Original Front Brake Pads!

I used NAPA Premium Brake Pads as replacements because I didn’t have Subaru pads on hand. So far, so good. They appear to be of high quality, work just as well and are just as quiet as the OEM pads, and cost less ($47.49). It will be interesting to see if they match the durability of Subaru OEM pads.

I presume you do mostly hwy driving?
I just replaced front+back pads at 45000 miles. Mostly city driving with occasional light towing. Rotors were exactly in the middle of the factory-minimum thickness range. Not complaining.

Also, it's impressive that your car also still has the original battery since the winter climate conditions in WI are probably more extremely than here in Maine.
Philbiker: You make me glad my wife didn't buy an Audi in March '03 when we bought her Subaru H6 Sedan. We considered an A4, but when similarly equiped it cost about $10,000 more than the H6. Both cars are Insurance Institute for Highway Safety "Best Picks." The Subaru is larger. The Audi 6 cylinder has 8 more hp. When price was factored in, the Subaru was the winner, hands down (and that wasn't even factoring in repair/maintenance cost).
