My brakes have just started to squeal when I come to a stop. It's quite loud and annoying. Car has ~10k miles on it. (I too live in the city)
Brake squeal could have a number of causes but not necessarily worn brakes. One of my C300 rear brakes was unusually loud at only perhaps 5K mi. There was plently left on the pad. As a precaution, the dealer replaced brake pads and rotors on both rears under warranty and they were silent from that day forward to 40K+ miles, when I still had a lot of pad left on front and rear.
