Now there's interesting....... Was just in at the dealers getting the "visual inspection" service and my winter wheel swap done and I asked about the rear pad wear showing 1,500 miles (still) on the computer. I'd just clocked over 37,000 miles when it went in.

Surprise surprise when they had the wheels off, I still had 9mm on the rear pads. So they reset all the service indicators again and after I've just done a 50 mile settling in run, they are now showing another 37,000 miles of life on them

As an aside, I gather that a number of customer airline pilots have been in to get their winter tyres on. Apparently, they get to see the long range weather forecasts and seemingly December ain't good. You heard it here first!!
