    That was the only damaged one, the other 3 were ok. It was intact in the caliper, but obviously damaged since it crumbled like that when I took it out.

    terrible,so danger.
    maybe its also weather related.
    and i suspect the ferodo pads prone to crack (had that cracks in other car with ferodo only)
    mine done service a year ago i think ill service them too .
    maybe will get a better braking as a result from the cleaning/lubing .
    i use this one(the paste) :http://www.carlube.co.uk/greases/carlube-copper-anti-seize-grease
    does good job but im pretty much sure it also wash before year time ..
    tbh its hard for the grease to stay there for much time while car washes and so much heat around that area
    and i like to put this : http://www.carlube.co.uk/greases/carlube-silicone-multi-purpose-grease
    around the rubber o rings

    As above I use the copper grease where metal touches metal and the silicone grease on the slider pins and pistons. Regardless of mileage this is a 6 month job especially after the winter.
