Re: V40 brakes
I'm no expert, but IMHO if the brake pads are "80% worn" then they are
indeed worn down to the remaining 20% of the original thickness. My
dealership reports brakes condition differently. E.g "80% remaining", which
of course means the pads are only 20% worn..........
Confusing, isn't it!
