I have a 2019 SVR that now has 22k miles on it - Great vehicle
It was in for recent changeover to snows and the dealer mentioned the brake pads were getting low - 2mm on the front & 3mm on the back.
They quoted $3,600 Canadian to replace the pads & rotors - they said they always replace both at the same time
This sounds bogus and huge prices - If the pads aren't down to metal on metal, there shouldn't be rotor wear.
To replace the pads alone, they are quoting $1,700
What am I missing on this?

It's typical to replace the rotors with pads on high performance cars, but to be honest I didn't do that on my 2017 first edition S F-Pace and my 2019 Fpace SVR didn't need pads by the time I turned it in. I'm going to replace my pads on my 2021 F-Pace SVR with Carbon Kevlar pads to reduce dust and I don't plan on replacing the rotors because the car only has 6k miles and Front and back look fine. I think you'll be good to keep the rotors on there if they look decent.

Someone on this forum posted a Technical Service Bulletin (not to be confused with a safety recall) about SVR brakes being the wrong compound, and SVR working on a new design or pad formulation to address the problem. Not sure if it includes the 2019 SVR too, so you may want to verify.

I just changed the pads to Porterfield ones mentioned in the other thread. No complaints so far. The stop the same or better than the original ones and they don't squeak. I haven't had them long enough to really make a dust assessment.

I just had this done last week on my 2020, bought it Certified Pre-Owned from out-of-state and took it in to my dealer about a month after buying Certified Pre-Owned for the EliteCare maintenance, was originally sold in 9/2019 and they let me schedule 30 days out so I took it in Oct. Was just an oil change, I'd put on < 1K miles but hey, not going to pass up free maintenance.
While it was in they said the brake pads and rotors were worn down to spec which was interesting since my CPO spec sheet said the pads were almost new at 8mm and rotors were 90%. I contacted the selling dealer in CA and without any hassle they agreed to cover everything. Worked out well for me, just over $3K with tax with and a 15% discount.

What was the mileage on the car?

I just took my pads off and replaced them with Carbon Kevlar pads from Porterfield. I had 6300 miles on the car when I replaced them and the pads I took off which were Brembos looked new. I replaced them because I was tired of hearing the screeching that the Brembo semi metallic pads did all the time. The new Carbon Kevlar pads are quiet so far. They also work very well. I did the job myself with the help of my son who is a tech for Honda. I will say this, if you are going to do the job yourself make sure you disable the emergency brake out back by pulling the actuator off the caliper quickly after you bypass the emergency brake by pressing the park button for 1 second. If the car shuts off when you are in that bypass mode with the emergency brake, the emergency brake will activate again. Not good when the caliper is off the rotor.

@Mars what did you end-up going with? I have a 2020 with the warning light just having come on so looking to see where I can buy good pads and will likely do the swap myself. Rotors are new from Aug 2021 (when I purchased the car used). I still have to take a look but they were supposed to have replaced the brakes but looks like all they did was the bare minimum for safety and swapped the rotors only (would be very stupid for not replacing the cheapest part of the brakes but hey, stupidity is rampant so would not surprise me that's what they did).

A lot of shops replace rotors to 1) increase sales 2) as a liability hedge and 3) to guard against complaints requiring comebacks to change the rotors because of noise when fitting with semi-metallic pads. Machining them can help with noise but you risk taking the rotors out of spec.

If the rotors are not too worn (big lip in outer and inner edge) you can leave them be IF you go with the Porterfield R4-S pads. They don’t seem to mind getting stuck on cars with shiny rotors. I put them on our FT R at 45k miles and they were just fine.

Having the DA dongle for the eBrakes makes the job much easier.

I hate that we can’t edit posts. Is that a part of Premium membership?

Worn, not warn.

Ah! Thanks for that. Not familiar with this forum format although it’s the same one as DIYMA.com which I’m on a fair bit. (Frankly, I don’t like it as well as the one on Malibucrew.com and JaguarForums.com).

Hi all. I have a 2019 F-Pace SVR. I replaced the pads & rotors at 27,000 miles. I am just about to turn 60,000, and again it’s time for a replacement. After reading comments in this thread, I am ordering Porterfield pads because of the brake dust issue. Given the price of the rotors from the dealer, does anyone have a recommendation for an alternative to the OEM rotors that will work well with the Porterfield pads?
