I pulled mine off cause they were noisy and found them pretty Shot. Anywhere local I might be able to get them? I have a big ride in a few days and use the bike for commuting. The rotor I'll address at a later date. It's a bit grooved, but not warped.

I'm in the PNW area of the US.

Find your local BMW shop. The pads cross reference with a bunch of BMW models. EBC part numbers for Front FA209HH and Rear FA266HH rear if EBC is your brand of choice. They should have them in stock.

:cheers:

The left is the inside pad. The outside pad has plenty of material lefthttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190709/3ac09c63d2ca9041a14e7d5541a2a430.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190709/b6abb3c67aab2f6892691ba3afd68533.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190709/3ba9b99c112727dfade262a0f05e8fbe.jpg

Very typical wear pattern so you may want to flush the rear brake system.
Cycle Gear carries the rear pad set in Galfor's but I don't like them as I am rear brake heavy and change the Galfor's when I change the oil. Best deal on pads can be either Amazon or eBay depending. I always have a complete set in the parts drawer. Rear EBC HH pads run about $30 and are used on a wide range of Euro bikes and some Harley Davidsons.

Mine wears the inside pad just like that. To check the wear I have to use a small mirror and a pen light to see inside the disk/caliper gap. I just check the wheel side as the road side has never worn out first.
Somehow the design of the caliper must have residual pressure after you release the brake. Even a very small time lag in achieving balanced inside to outside pressure would show assymetrical wear over the life of the pad. The supply goes in on the road side and I am unfamiliar with the hydrolic circuit in the caliper. A couple of tight 90 bends in the path would slow the response slightly.
Lots of input on this forum about pads. All most as bad as an oil discussion.....
