Pads

I checked mine at the recent 12,000 mile service: front pads 4 mm, disks 4.9 mm. Rear pads 4 mm, rear disk 4.5 mm.

GPS City has the best prices. As MBD says, buy CNNA DVD first, then after loading it (or waiting a year even), get the LMU.

You want the DVD so you can load the map to the computer also.
