Getting 103,000 km out of a set of pads is quite remarkable, and probably due to the car being used in the bush without the stop-start traffic. It's quite normal today to be replacing pads every 50,000 km or so and replacing discs every second pad change. Country cars can be good buys because of the less stressful life they tend to lead. There is no replacement time set down for cat converters, when they go they tend to collapse internally, and when it happened to a car of mine a while back it
blocked the exhaust and brought the car to a halt.
