Rear Brake Pads

Hi.
Can anyone tell me how much friction material is normally on new rear pads.
My car is a 2003 Slk 200.

Thanks

Total thickness of backplate and compound 15.3mm and for Ł13.62 a set from eurocarparts I don't think I would take them down to 2mm like your Fazer.

The reason I ask is the pads look OK but without knowing how much meat they have on them from new it hard to know how worn they are.
