    How long between the first brake wear warning and replacement?
    The reason I ask is mine flashed up yesterday but my MOT is due in about six weeks; I do about 200 (mainly motorway) miles per week; will they last or should I replace them immediately?
    Thanks

    Two things here
    1 you are going to have to get them done before the MOT
    2 they should be OK for another 1000 miles but why take chances; they are only getting worse and if you leave it too long then you score the discs; more money for little saving:doh:
