    Most dealer technicians won't remove the road wheels to check brake pads T, they normally use a torch and a mirror. Was the same years ago when I used to work for Volvo.

    You can see them fine through the facelift SRi rims.

    Note that the rear pads don't wear down any further than about 1.5mm material, as the caliper is at it's maximum reach at that point.

    I don't have any problems viewing the outer brake pad material on the fronts
    I tend the view the inner brake pad material when the car is in for a tyre renewal
    The outer brake pad material on the rears is difficult to view, but with the wheels in the correct position it is possible
