front brakes worn out already

You sure better think twice about getting OEM pads for this mutha, mine were pretty worn out at 10K, about a dime width left on the most worn pad. The stealer wanted $90 PER CALIPER for brake pads for the stock ones, what a joke. Instead I went with some EBC HH on the front @ $32/caliper. Their sqeaking a little but may need bedding in.

So easy to replace its ridiculous, one torx headed pin, one clip per side. 10 minutes if you take your time.

I'm guessing the track days i did last year might have something to do with the wearing out so fast.
