Welcome to BMW ownership my friend. They don't cut your rotors only replace at the dealership and they only use new parts. That may be why. It's not a hard job (to me), but boy do they get paid. After coughing up about $600 on the front axle of my X5 i said never again will i pay for a brake job and haven't since. See if you can find an independent BMW mechanic around you area, it may cost you half that amount.
