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.
Hi UncleJ,
I thought in most cars, the front brakes wear quicker than rears. why do you the rears of the X3 wear quicker than fronts? Thanks.
