Wonder if torque steering is the reason rear brakes pads wear quicker than fronts? If I understand this correctly the vehicle selectively applies light braking to some wheels on cornering to improve handling.

To get my terminology correct I mean Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB). According to Jaguar "The system is designed to apply finely-metered braking to the inner wheels to mitigate understeer during corner entry" and "the system works predominantly on the inside rear wheel to avoid any corruption of the steering feel". I would expect that depending on driving style this could wear rear brake pads quicker than front?
