    yeah, only the passanger side iirc :thumbsup:
    but my last ones didn't work, the pads just wore straight through the sensor without any warning

    There is a part in the car that the sensor plugs into which breaks, so either you get no warning at all like S3 tny or a false warning like me when you've still got 1/2 pad width left.

    Of course you could always just look at the pads now and then :p

    Couldn't agree more! Technology trying and failing to solve a problem that doesn't exist.
