I thought it was always clear which set of pads the warning is for - its pretty clear on idrive?

I'm not sure BMW have done anything wrong here - as a quick check of the outer pad + no warning would suggest the front pads were OK.

Kwikfit however seemed to have a clear front pad warning light (which works off the inner pad), but failed to notice or seemingly check the thickness of the pad! WTF!

The uneven wear maybe caused by the caliper not floating / moving easily - could be dirt etc. - if indeed it is uneven - need to have a look.
