Stock OEM brake pad thickness

Did a quick search and didn't see anything. Does anyone know the stock pad thickness when new?

I have 6mm and 5mm remaining and want to get an idea on how much has been used. Dealer says they replace when they are at 2mm.

Looks like they start at 11mm. So about half way gone.

Total pad thickness up front is 20.3mm. Backing plate is about 5.5mm. So you are more than half way. I don't remember the rear measurements. I only found notes about the front ones lying around.

My indy shop said I only had 20% life left so I'll be sure to drive enthusiastically before the warranty/maintenance is up. But then I drive that way regardless.
