´Brake Pads. Replace !´WTF ?

Hi all, needs some advice if anyone can help..... Coming home last night I got the above warning message come up on the I-Drive and the warning light on the centre console is permanently on. The I-Drive service indicator says the rear pads need to be replaced in 9,000kms and the fronts in 25,000. So why am I getting this message ? It doesnt even tell me if its the front or back that need replacing ?

I mentioned on another thread recently that I could hear a squeaking noise at low speed so I guess this must be the pads.

So:

1. Could there be a pad problem, but they are not necessarily worn ?
or
2. They are worn and the service indicator interval for them has not been set correctly ? (The car has done 53,000kms)

Do you think I could go to an independent garage if they do need replacing, does it really matter if they are OEM's or not ?

I really wanted to get everything done when the service was due in 7,000kms to save labour costs etc, but looks like that ain't going to happen

cheers

Takes 30 mins to swap the pads over, so get an indy to do them, I did them on mine and reset the service light.

However if it is still showing 7000km till they are dure not sure what is going on there?

I would do them all and reset the indcator again.

Probably €150 all in?

It is a known fault, and needs to be taken into BMW for an ECU reset - Mine did exactly the same - All under warranty

Andy, from one of your posts in another thread:

I've had a look at the current SIB List revision 16 & can't find anything in there related to your problem in particular, I'm afraid.

As Oli suggests, I'd take it in to your dealership & let them sort it out for you.

All the best.

Same here. Mine thought I'd done 30k miles on pads, but had done nowhere near that much.
