So I guess in England you don't get the full maintenance program up to 50K miles? If the wear sensor is not touched it can be reused with the new pads. Buy pads from the dealer's spares department and then have your indy shop install them. Save a few pounds for a nice dinner and a bottle of good wine with your lady. The rear pads seem to wear quicker and at least on mine were replaced and the rotors not changed by the dealer. The front brakes lasted longer, but when they went both the pads and rotors were changed (by BMW on my dime -- or sixpence I guess). BTW the fronts lasted over 60K miles.
