Wear Brakes out before Maint period ends?

Anyone do this? I have a year left and my thing says I won't wear the front or rear brakes out by the end of my maintenance period. Any ways to wear them out quicker?

Joe

hit the track, they are condition based, it's not linear, the more aggressive you drive the more the miles decrease

Can you get it to within 1000 miles of the service? Dealer SHOULD do it at that point.

2007 328i  [0.00]
I have less than a year on the 4yr/50,000 mile free maintenance and per the CBS, I have 15,000 miles left on the rear pads and 12,000 miles left on the front pads. I am very unlikely to wear them out in 11 months but I do have the extended maintenance package for an additional 2 years.

2 months back, I went in for the vehicle check at about 28,700 miles and they measured the pad thickness and told me the rear's were at 4mm and fronts were at 7mm.

4mm = 15,000 miles
7mm = 12,000 miles

Don't make sense to me.

Brake power is biased to the front so the fronts will wear almost twice as fast as the rears.

One month before the warranty expires take it to the dealer and complain of squishy brakes and that sometimes your brake pedal pulsates.
