      I had my brake sensor light come on after 70k miles or
      so, BMW pads and rotors. This was unexpected since 90%
      of my miles are 400 miles a pop between LA and SFO. I
      pulled the pads off Saturday and replaced pad, rotors,
      and sensor. My driver side, where the sensor sits, was
      worn almost to the metal pad backing, but the
      passenger side was maybe 50%. What causes this? I
      could not see spending major coin on this, but what
      does this mean?

      p.s. CRC anti-squeal for $3.99 for 4 o.z. Kragen
      online is awesome. No brake noise whatsoever when I
      apply the brakes. Before this brake job, I always had
      some squeal.
