When to Replace Brakes

alright guys, i'm a little embarassed to ask this question. But when do we know our brakes needs to be replaced besides taking it to a service?
i mean will the driver (me) feel any difference besides the really bad squealing, and assume by that time the rotors are also messed up. thats what happened to my firends Z4, he didn't take it in for a while and they had to end up changing the rotors too, SA saying it was F#%ked up. occasionally i get the squeals but after a nice car wash then it's gone, so i didn't think much. last time i took my car in for service SA told me i had around 10,000 more miles to go but don't know if with my driving habits the pads won't last as long.

so back to original question, when do i know its time for new brake pads/rotors? how i will feel it?

thanks in advance
