Rear Brakes - Dealer Keeps Resetting

I presently have just over 30k miles. The computer told me I was down to about 1800 7 months ago. It was reset to about 7500. now I am down to 3000. What going on? Its obviously not accurate. Also, why is there so much rust on my rear brakes? I would think it is from living at the shore, but it looks like sh*t.

Thanks,
Brandon

I too noticed horrible rusting on my rotors. Im talking one day. Obviously it would go away once I drove the car and the pads hit the rotors and wiped the rust off but, man, was it ugly to see in the morning. Very unusual. I think BMW forgot to paint some anti rust agent on our brake assemblies.

mostly on metal surfaces. rotors always get surface discoloration until they are driven. especially after a wash. its the hardware in rear.

Purchase ceramic rotors and the problem will probably go away.
