How many miles do you get out of your brake pads. I know it depends on driving and pad make, but number of miles between changes please.

Fronts and rears please.

Personally, I don't do too much braking. I follow far enough back to not have to slam on the brakes. I usually have to change about every 8-10k miles. :)

It all relates to how you use your brakes and the quality of the parts. You will know after your first replacement on what to expect.
I always measure my pads after every event I attend to ensure I am not borderline or some anomaly happens.
