Q: rear brakes and disk

asked by on

hi there I've done a service and mot on my bmw series1 and left the garage very unsure about the work done. I left my car at the garage at 10am and by 4pm they had not finished and said the system was down therefore i left the car there for the work to be finished the next day. to my surprise the car was driven over 10miles and the explanation used was that hey had to go to another garage but its only 3miles away so i'm really unsure on their work advice since they also have a lot of complaints about extra added work. My advisory says: the brake pad is wearing thin at rear (3.5.1g) rear disc worn but not seriously weakened rear (3.5.li) Is this unsafe because the guy made me feel like its really dangerous and I should do it straight away. that also my insurance will not cover me because if this.

My car has 82000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
