    A few weeks ago a countdown for replacing the rear pads started, and it has now gone a couple of hundred over.I've just had a look and there is about 3mm of pad left, obviously not going to last much longer, but not quite all gone. Do I assume correctly that the countdown is just generated by the computer, and there will be the usual tell-tale wire embeded, to show when really worn out?

    BMW recommend you replace them at 3mm. Just had them done 6 months ago, followed by the fronts last week.
    Rears wear faster than the fronts to reduce nose diving in an SUV
