The only part I didn't understand was why the XP12/XP10 don't come with an usable wear sensor slot; the pad is only partly cut...
Oh...and hammering the pins back is not easy in the rear without nicking the paint a little.
agreed about the pins. using something broad helps to prevent slipping off but it's a slight trick to get it done cleanly. each time I've done it it's gotten better though!

also not sure about the pads, sounds weird,maybe they had a reason for doing it that way but I can't think of one! will you be tracking the car on those pads?
