When did you replace your e46 brakes?

At what mileage did you replace your e46 brakes? Was it both front and rear? And if done separately, how far apart (mileage) were the front and rears?

My car went into the shop for a long list of repairs at 27,141 miles, and when it left I had done an Inspection 1, a brake flush, new wipers and new brakes all around.

The brakes were not worn, in fact they had about 50% of the pad left on front and rear.

This is how I got everything covered, as quoted from my service invoice:

Front brakes

Complaint: c/s vibration in steering wheel upon braking

Cause: as per si 34-03-99, warped rotors.

Correction: balance front wheels, replace front brake pads and rotors, replace hydraulic lines and coupling

Rear Brakes
Complaint: c/s there is squealing on applying the brakes

Cause: as per si 34-03-00

Correction: replace rear brake pads (front pads already replaced on Job 3)
