I've done mine at various times when the light came on, and based on my experience, I would gauge that there is about 7500 wear miles of material left over before your pads wear to the point of scoring the rotors.

I believe MB likes to err on the safe side.

Don't know what model you own, but vehicle weight and driver input are varying factors...but I believe you can probably go a month or two safely before you really need to give the brakes a look...
