Some of you know this but for clarity the car has two pad warnings. One for CBS and one for worn out. CBS is algorithm based and worn out is pad sensor. The two pad warnings are not related funny enough.

Im going to imagine the CBS is the digital readout on the idrive how many miles you have left?

Yes, and it will stay at 4500 for ages.
I had similar case but car had 4500 for 18 months and then started going down. I must add that when it prompts you to change it, pads usually have 10% life left.

CBS works and good for those who cannot be bothered to keep checking their pads.

Why not remove from pads? Only spring clip holds it in
