BMW brakes replacement...

So i had a little issue with car recently well not so much of an issue really but about a month ago my RPM just shoot up to almost 1.5k twice at a stop light, but that went away right after couple seconds of driving.

i complain about that issue then while i was at talking to the service advisor he told me that brakes were due to replace even though im not getting any messages from my IDRIVE... so they were going to replace it then i got a call today and said that my brakes are still 50% good IM like WHAT... it doesnt look like to me... also my maintenance minder said that i need replacement in 3400miles on it. i am currently at 45k miles now so after 3400 miles i should be needing a replacement so im right about 48k miles. but they said they reset the computer...

WHAT THE HELL SHOULD I DO? it sounds like they want money for the replacement.

Take out your pads and measure the thickness on them. This will tell you if the dealer is BS'ing.

They can replace them when the car calls for less than about 2k until they are actually due. So you can still get them done prior to 50k no problem. Under the condition based service (CBS), that what's allowed. Drilled rotors also supposed to replaced during pad replacement regardless of rotor thickness....according to BMW maintenance guidelines. Hope that helps.

Between 2mm - 4mm. But you should not let your pads wear out lower then 2mm (2/32 inch).
