How many miles are you getting out of your pads?
My pad wear indicator light on the dash on my 300E is starting to flicker, and if I tromp on the brakes, it comes on solid.
Just had the dealer install a new OEM set in February. That was about 5K miles ago.
Before then, I don't think I remember ever getting the brakes done since I purchased the car (at 72K), so I guess that would qualify for about 32K before pad replacement.
What is everyone else getting for pad mileage? 5K seems a bit premature...
