Post wheel bearings and brakes?

I have a 2000 RS with 54k on it and the wheel bearings seem to be going bad already as i am also going through my second pair of brake pads. Is this something anyone has had problems with that soon?

New or used MY00 RS??

Wheel bearings go when they want to. Usually caused by water/dirt contamination. I caught mine early, but I have 45,000 miles on my car before the bearings started making some noise.

Brake pads depend on how you use them. When you change the pads, check the calipers for excessive dirt or rust and check the piston boots as well. For reference, my car has 45,000 miles and still has 1/4" of pad material on the original pads.

If your running aftermarket wheels with the wrong offset your bearings will also suffer. I found this out the hard way and went through 3 rear wheel bearings @ $300+ each.
