42500 miles. As far as i am aware it has never had new pads or discs. I have had it for 30,000 of those miles and have only had to replace the rear two wheels. I don't think it is a problem with the brakes, they clearly do need replacing (i can see visually) i am just questioning whether they're stupidly expensive or if that really is the cost of the Jag brakes.
Wonder if anyone out there has tried these brembo brakes? Cheaper too.

For the rears, yes I'd use them. Jag parts are over-priced. For me it's a pity nobody makes them for the front yet!

One thing I do appreciate about the oem pads is there is very little brake dust produced, I wonder if the various pattern parts are as good in that regard?

That is because they are hard pads and designed for sports use. When I had the MG Maestro I uprated the suspesion and brakes and used MINTEX. The difference was that until they warmed up slightly more pressure was required but when warmed they were superb. I suspect that Jaguar fits hard pads as standard. Most maker have a small logo or number on their products and I suspect Jaguar will be using something like Brembo or Mintex sports pads with the harder material, which keeps the dust down. The only problem with harder pads is that the discs wear quicker.

I was told by my dealership that the pads can last a few years until normal wear conditions. Is this true?

Normal wear means careful driving and is a vague expression.

It means driving under civilised conditions without 'fast & furious' attributes 😀
