That may depend on the model - I heard Jurid is OE provider, but maybe ZIMMERMANN provides the products as well.

I paid $360 + no tax for OE rotors, pads and sensor. I have a bad experience with aftermarket rotors (Zimmermann) and will always buy OE front rotors.

CBS states that around 52k miles I will need to go for an inspection. I believe this is inspection II, but can be wrong.

I drive BMW diesels the last 10 years and I have never waited a minute to heat up the car. This pointless, the car heats up faster when it is driving.

It is not necessary about the temperature. At least not directly. It is about Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) which needs temperature and time to clear up.

Problems with 35d were predominately for 2009 and 2010 models and were related to urea system including the software. It appears that BMW figured out the system in 2011.
