computers fail to read brakes due km.

hi
my z4 35i, vehicle information said that
rear breaks to be changed (20,000km)
front breaks to be changed (25,000km)

when i drive the car for about 10,000 my breaks been run out and start to damage the break disc.
the car vehicle information still show that i can use the car for other 6,000 km.
although the car breaks were totally burn out.

the dealr said that iam over breaking. !!!!!!

the car is not giving the correct readings!

any one have the same problem??

Garage List
The figures shown in the Vehicle Information screens only shown how long the brakes should last, it does not shown actual wear of the brakes. I would have to side with the Dealer on you are using the brakes a lot, mine are still good after 36,000 km, and should last at least another 10,000 km based on the wear so far

to say that in true my brother got the 335i and he use the breaks for about 20,000km.

then may we say the ways that i can reduce the breaking?
or lets ask that in different way, how to use the breaks in sufficient way?
i belive it will be good points if i know about this

I can't speak about your driving skills or your brothers, but my e90 brakes lasted 50 thousand miles, that's 80 thousand kilometers. And at 15 thousand miles my Z4 still has 70% of their life... Maybe it's time to rethink your driving habits.

Apart from a mechanical problem, I don't know how you wear out your breaks that fast unless you ride around with your left foot resting on the peddle.
