Well, my 2001 330I now has 32k miles on it. I tried getting new brakes from the dealership but they said no go. They claim that my front pads have 80% left and the rear ones have 50%. Damnit! I've heard of people going through pads like crazy here. Yet, I cant seem to wear mine down! Any ideas? If I go past the 36k mark, I will have to pay for them on my own. I'd much prefer to have BMWNA pay the bill. I wonder if I should start thinking of extending the full maintanence and pay the extra $400.
