My E30 failed inspection today, would like your input

They told me it needed front brakes.

I said it 'brakes quicker and better than my e46!"

They said it needs pads.

I went home, took the wheel off, and inspected the pad. It has at LEAST half it's life left.

Called back, they said its likely to fail 3 months down the road, so they can't pass it now.

Aren't they inspecting to determine if it's safe to drive on the road NOW? Who are they to try and predict when parts will fail in the future?

What's my best course of action?

I was thinking of going to take it to another place tomorrow, because I refuse to change the pads before they're really gone.
