Hi, I have a couple of questions. I have an E92 320d. Brake pads and discs have just been replaced all round about 50-100 miles on them. I noticed it seems like the outer edge of the pad on each wheel is touching the discs ever so slightly when brakes are not being applied. Is this normal?
Secondly, the front brake service indicator shows 80,000 miles, whereas rears show 16,000. Both replaced at the same time. Seems unusually high to me. This is the same value that it was showing before the pad replacement, and I haven't seen it decreasing. Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks!

If the rotors were not replace and there is a ridge on the outside of the rotor from wear, the pad may hit the ridge before the remainder of the rotor.

The service data for the brake pads needs to be reset using a BMW scan tool.
