Why are my brake discs wearing thin fast?

Jan 23 2002 was the day I changed my front discs on the 300SE.

Today, Sept 11 2002, they had to be replaced coz it was running thin. I am wondering why are the discs wearing down fast?

I run an average of 5,000 km per month, so that is roughly 40,000 km put in!

Is there something amiss here, or is this normal? The mech said it could be due to my driving. But I don't do any hard braking ....

Is it going to be another disc + pad change 8 months from today?

I wonder ...

ps. Just as well we decided to change the discs. We discovered a faulty brake pump with seals as hard as it could get ...
